Dark side of politicians



Former PM Abe denies ties to yakuza’s Yamaguchi-gumi



Former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has denied ties to organized crime after the Shukan Post published a 2008 photo of him with Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee and Icchu Nagamoto, who is associated with the Yamaguchi-gumi, Japan's largest yakuza syndicate.



Mike Huckabee met with a Japanese gangster?



山口組のソート悪金融達人とお金貸し手である永は、ハッカに近づき、ビジネス上の取引の中で行くために彼を説得しようとしたかもしれないという可能性がある "とジェイク·アデルスタイン、東京副の著者は述べて日本のヤクザでインサイダーの外観は"永は昨年起訴された数年前に井上工業偽増資事件の重要人物だった。"

There is a possibility that Nagamoto, who is a sort evil financial whiz and money lender for the Yamaguchi-gumi, might have approached Huckabee and tried to convince him to go in on a business deal," said Jake Adelstein , the author of Tokyo Vice , an insider's look at the Yakuza in Japan. "Nagamoto was a key figure in the Inoue Kogyo fake capital increase case a few years ago that was prosecuted last year."


Nagamoto is on trial for allegedly violating lending laws related to the financial fundraising scam, Adelstein said.

この出会いは、日本の政治とハッカビーの唯一の奇妙な接続ではありません。 2009年には、ケーブルはハッカビーは、日本の第二次世界大戦の残虐行為を擁護するために知られている論争の日本人一般とクルーズに関する特集講師であることだったと報告している。

This encounter is not Huckabee's only bizarre connection with Japanese politics. In 2009, The Cable reported that Huckabee was to be the featured lecturer for a cruise with a controversial Japanese general who is known for defending Japan's World War II atrocities.


Huckabee was in discussions to interview the organizer of that cruise, Toshio Tamogami , the former Japanese Air Force chief of staff who was fired in 2009 after creating an international incident by writing in an essay that Japan was "not an aggressor nation" in WWII. Huckabee's participation in the event was scuttled after The Cable's report came out.

"日本の超右とアメリカの間に右の不道徳な同盟があるようです、"ミンディ·コトラー、アジア·ポリシー·ポイント、日本の研究を行う非営利組織の創設者は言った。 "彼らは攻撃的な反中国の国防政策に同意するが、少し他の2つの値を比較した場合、彼らはお互いを驚かすだろう。"

"There seems to be an unholy alliance between Japan's ultra-right and the American right," said Mindy Kotler , the founder of Asia Policy Point , a non-profit organization that does research on Japan. "They agree on an aggressive anti-China defense policy, but little else. If the two compared values they would frighten each other."

TOKYO-2007年6月、日本の参院選挙が近づいていたように、国内最大の組織犯罪グループ40,000加盟国の2番目の主要政党、民主党(DPJ)の背後にそのサポートをスローする山口組 - ことを決めた。

In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:
TOKYO—In June 2007, as Japan's upper house elections were drawing near, the nation's largest organized crime group—the 40,000 member Yamaguchi-gumi—decided to throw its support behind the country's second leading political party, the Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ).


The message was simple. "We've worked out a deal with a senior member of the DPJ. We help them get elected and they keep a criminal conspiracy law, the kyobozai, off the books for a few more years," one insider said. The next month, calls went out from Yamaguchigu-mi headquarters to the heads of each local branch across the country. In Tokyo, even the conservative boss Goto Tadamasa, leader of the 1,000 strong Yamaguchi-gumi unit called the Goto-gumi, told his people, "We're backing DPJ. Whatever resources you have available to help the local DPJ representative win, put them to work."

メッセージは単純なものでした。 "我々は、民主党のシニアメンバーとの契約を働いてきた私たちは、それらを選出するのに役立つ、彼らはいくつかのより多くの年のためのブックオフの刑事陰謀法、kyobozaiを保つ、"一つのインサイダーは言った。来月、呼び出しはYamaguchigu-MI本部から全国の各地方の支店の長に出て行った。東京でも、保守的な上司後藤忠正、1,000強い山口組ユニットのリーダーは、後藤組と呼ばれる彼の人々に言った、 "我々は民主党を支持していますので、地元の民主党代表の勝利をするために利用できる持っているどのようなリソースを、置くそれらが動作するように。 "

We help them get elected and they keep a criminal conspiracy law, the kyobozai, off the books for a few more years," one insider said. The next month, calls went out from Yamaguchigu-mi headquarters to the heads of each local branch across the country.

Whatever resources you have available to help the local DPJ representative win, put them to work."


Bosses of the Inagawa-kai, Japan's third largest organized crime group (10,000 members), met in an entertainment complex they own in Yokohama, and announced to board members that the Inagawa-kai would support DPJ as well. At the same time, the yakuza allegedly struck a deal with Mindan and Chosensoren—political and social organizations that lobby for the rights and interests of Japanese of Korean descent—to support the DPJ. Party leaders, in turn, promised both groups that they would strive to get Japanese-Koreans with permanent residence equal voting rights when they took office. According to the National Police Agency [NPA], of the more than 86,000 yakuza members in Japan, a third are of Korean descent.

前例のないディール / An Unprecedented Deal


For decades, Japan's vast, homegrown mafia network has exercised powerful control over the inner workings of domestic politics. With antecedents as far back as the early Tokugawa period in the seventeenth century, today's yakuza came of age after World War II, calling themselves ninkyo dantai, or chivalrous organizations.


Japan's longest ruling party, the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP), has dominated Japanese politics since it was founded at the same time. The LDP couldn't have existed without the financial support of Yoshio Kodama, a right-wing activist and industrialist with strong yakuza connections. From its earliest days, gang bosses funded and supported LDP candidates and elected officers, and were rewarded with public works projects, political favors and an agreement that no serious crackdown on the yakuza would take place.


Their existence would remain effectively legal. The Japan Federation of Lawyers (Nichibenren) has argued for years that while the Japanese government officially recognizes 22 yakuza outfits and regulates them, the act of recognition itself legitimizes the organizations. For decades the federation has called for an across-the-board ban on the existence of organized crime groups.


Sokka Gakkai, a religious organization represented by the political party Komeito, used the Goto-gumi, to keep its party strong and squelch dissent. Tadamasa, the Goto-gumi boss, explicitly discusses these ties in his recently published autobiography. Some LDP senators and cabinet ministers used yakuza enforcers to deal with bad debts and bounced checks. Wealthy senators such as Eitaro Itoyama used organized crime to cover up scandals and increase their wealth.


When crime boss Inagawa Chihiro needed to be admitted to the United States for a liver transplant (yakuza leaders are notoriously hard drinkers), former LDP Secretary General Makoto Koga pleaded successfully with U.S. officials to allow Chihiro to enter the country.

しかし、地震のシフトは日本の政治に進行中である。現代の歴史の中で初めて、ヤクザは忠誠を交換しました。日本の三大犯罪組織の二つは、シングルストロークでの公式の党として民主党を採用しました。最も強力な、山口組は、有権者、資金と民主党が "外交的"援助をもたらしています。この春、それは民主党が民事抑える助け...

But a seismic shift is underway in Japanese politics. For the first time in modern history, the yakuza have swapped allegiances. Two of Japan's three largest crime organizations adopted the DPJ as their official party in a single stroke. The most powerful, the Yamaguchi-gumi, has brought voters, funding and "diplomatic" aid to the DPJ. This spring it helped the DPJ suppress civil...

It’s almost too perfect: Japan’s new minister of justice is about to resign over his ties to a leading yakuza (mafia) organization. Jake Adelstein reports on the latest political scandal—and just what the yakuza do for the politicians.

Twenty-four organizations are designated by police as crime syndicates. They have a combined annual income of around $45 billion. The three largest organized crime groups in Japan are 1)Yamaguchi-gumi; 2) Sumiyoshi-kai and 3) Inagawa-kai. Together they have around 61,100 members, or 73 percent of Japan’s gangster population.

暴力団は、オフィスの外に動作します。そこに全国のこれらの事業所の約3,000400〜、東京に事務所と大阪で330。大規模なグループは、サブグループを持っている。 Yamaken-組は山口組の最大の関連会社です。それは7,000のメンバーを持っています。

Organized crime groups operate out of offices. There around 3,000 of these offices nationwide with 400 to 500 such offices in Tokyo and 330 in Osaka. The large groups have subgroups. Yamaken-gumi is the largest affiliate of Yamaguchi-gumi. It has 7,000 members.

alt=""class="pmark"/>Sumiyoshi-kai is the second largest yakuza group in Japan with roughly 12,000 members (20,000 by some estimates) divided into 277 clans. It has a well-known office in Tokyo’s Ginza District and operates under the banner Hama Enterprise. Sumiyoshi-kai, as it is sometimes called, is a confederation of smaller yakuza groups. Its current oyabun is Shigeo Nishiguchi.


Structurally, Sumiyoshi-kai differs from its principal rival, the Yamaguchi-gumi, in that it functions like a federation. The chain of command is more lax, and although Shigeo Nishiguchi is always the supreme oyabun, its leadership is distributed among several other people.


The Inagawa-kai, the third largest organized crime group in Japan, with offices across from the Tokyo Ritz Carlton. It has roughly 15,000 members divided into 313 clans. It is based in the Tokyo-Yokohama area and was one of the first yakuza families to expand its operations to outside of Japan. Its current oyabun is Yoshio Tsunoda.
