On September 14, the Special Investigations Department of the Tokyo District Prosecutor’s Office arrested Kadokawa Chairman Tsuguhiko Kadokawa on suspicion of corruption. He is accused of having paid a bribe of around 76 million yen to Haruyuki Takahashi, former director of the Tokyo Olympics organizing committee, who runs the consultancy firm Commons. Of these, about 7 million yen exceeded the three-year statute of limitations, so the suspect is about 69 million yen. As I predicted, Olympic corruption is on the rise.

Former JOC President Tsunekazu Takeda was also voluntarily interviewed

The Special Investigations Department voluntarily interviewed former JOC President Tsunekazu Takeda (former Vice President of the Organizing Committee) on the points I highlighted above. The relationship between Takeda and Takahashi will be discussed later.

Former JOC President Tsunekazu Takeda reportedly responded to a voluntary questioning by the Tokyo District Attorney’s Office regarding Olympic corruption.
