Japan rocked by Tokyo 2020 Olympics corruption probe

Social sharing

Japan has found itself in the middle of a bribery scandal which could jeopardise its hopes of hosting the 2030 Winter Olympic Games. 

It follows the arrest of a former Tokyo 2020 Olympics committee board member and three employees of a clothing company that sponsored the games.

Haruyuki Takahashi, a former executive at advertising company Dentsu, is suspected of receiving bribes of around €370,000 from the former head of Aoki Holdings Inc. and two company employees.

Aoki, which makes affordable business suits, was considered a surprise choice to dress the Japanese Olympic team while other nations opted for more internationally recognisable brands.
