The statement was found false when police arrested the chairman, and most of its products were suspended. However seriously it takes the situation, we can't trust the company like before.

A: × Nobody can defend it because it lacked compliance awareness and apologies for the customers.
✓ Nobody can defend it because it engaged in unethical/illegal business practices and is unapologetic to the customers.

This mostly sounds natural, with a comment about the last sentence.

I think compliance is a special word in Japanese that refers to compliance with law and regulations. Actually, I feel like I can understand the expression "lacked compliance awareness", but maybe it is uncommon when speaking about corporations, because we expect corporations to always be aware of the laws and regulations that they must abide by. So in this case, we would assume that the corporation disregarded those laws and regulations and acted unlawfully or unethically.
