The leader of Kudo-kai, Japan’s largest and most violent Yakuza group (crime syndicate), has been accused of tax evasion, Japanese police reported Tuesday.
The charge, yet to be admitted in court, was imposed on Satoru Nomura, 68, who was indicted last year for a murder, committed in 1998.
The police also arrested three other Kudo-kai members, considered close to Nomura, in the tax evasion case.
They are accused of concealing 227 million yen ($1.82 million), collected by the syndicate between 2010 and 2013 and evading taxes to the tune of 88 million yen (around $706,000).
