  • Description

    In Japan, a parliamentary investigation into the Lockheed pay-off scandal has led to more arrests of officials from the country's domestic All-Nippon Airways (ANA).

    SYNOPSIS: Police went to the home of the airline's President, Tokuji Wakasa, on Thursday (8 July). Four other senior ANA officials were arrested last month on suspicion of illegally receiving Lockheed money in violation of Japan's foreign exchange and trade control laws. But the four have yet to be charged. Mr. Wakasa - in glasses - has also been arrested on suspicion of foreign exchanges violations. He is also suspected of perjuring himself in his sworn testimony before the Lower House Budget Committee recently.

    A fifth airline official was later arrested. The company's Vice-President, Nadji Watanabe, is alleged to have lied to the investigating committee when he said that he had no knowledge of illegal payments made to All Nippon Airways by the Lockheed Aircraft Corporation. His arrest brought to seven the number of people detained in connection with the scandal.
