"Japan's Intelligence Services: From North Korean Spies To Right-wingers"
Japan's low-profile Public Security Intelligence Agency is tasked with a wide range of information-gathering activities including, under the PSIA's second intelligence department, domestic counter-intelligence. This broad remit covers gathering information on issues ranging from North Korean spies to Japanese right-wing groups.
On Oct. 19, Mitsuhiro Suganuma, former section head of the second intelligence department, will be at the club to offer an insight into these activities. Suganuma is well informed about the deep relationships between yakuza crime syndicates and other sections of Japanese society. Don't miss this event for a fascinating look at a side of Japan that's often hidden.
