Olympus Corp's ousted CEO, Michael Woodford, was to meet on Dec. 14 a panel of lawmakers from Japan's ruling Democratic Party looking at ways to tighten corporate governance in the wake of the accounting scandal at the endoscope maker, sources said.
Woodford may also meet lawmakers from the opposition Liberal Democratic Party of Japan.
Woodford, who arrived on Dec. 13 and who will leave in the morning on Dec. 16, plans to meet investors and candidates for directors as part of his bid to remove the board of the company.
His visit comes as Olympus prepares to release its earnings before a today's deadline in order to avoid being delisted by the Tokyo Stock Exchange.
