Japan’s $1.3 trillion Government Pension Investment Fund is suing Toshiba Corp. for losses on its investments after an accounting scandal sent the conglomerate’s shares plunging.

GPIF is seeking damages of about ¥900 million, said Shinichirou Mori, a spokesman for the fund. The losses related to shares bought by GPIF’s external fund managers in 2009 through a secondary share offering, he said. The Wall Street Journal reported the news earlier on Thursday.
