"Protesting Judgement after Conviction in Moritomo Gakuen Fraud Trial"

(The speech and Q & A will be in Japanese with English interpretation)


Yasunori Kagoike, the former head of Moritomo Gakuen, has been sentenced to five years in jail for defrauding the government of subsidies. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's wife was once the honorary prinicipal of Moritomo Gakuen, which was given a massive discount for use of land in Osaka. Kagoike's wife, Junko, was given a three-year suspended term for related charges.

Kagoike was unhappy with the handling of his case by prosecutors and believes that his human rights have been violated. He will come to the Club to explain his position and how he feels justice has not been served.
