Japanese sports officials owe it to the athletes and the sports world to investigate the cases of corruption themselves, and not just leave it to prosecutors.
Prosecutors are getting to the bottom of the scandal involving a few individuals. So don’t let the “power of sports” generated by the Games be diminished.
Prosecutors are investigating whether Aoki Holdings, Inc. and Haruyuki Takahashi, a Tokyo 2020 marketing official, engaged in unethical business practices.
Police raided the home of Haruyuki Takahashi in an investigation of alleged bribery for receiving large sums from a sponsor for the Tokyo Olympics.
