Kansai Electric Power Co. is set to file a damages suit against one-time members of its management over a bribery scandal involving a former deputy mayor of a town that hosts one of its nuclear plants, sources familiar with the matter said Friday.

The Osaka-based utility decided to file the lawsuit after its investigation commission consisting of outside lawyers concluded that five former executives, including former Chairman Makoto Yagi, inflicted some ¥1.3 billion in damages on the company, the sources said.
