The suspect Gershie (real name: Yoshikazu Higashitani), a fugitive from abroad, has finally been arrested.
Ghasi, for whom an arrest warrant has been issued for habitually threatening prominent people, returned from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), where he had been based, and was arrested by the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department at Narita Airport on June 4.
He was arrested by the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department at Narita Airport on June 4.
According to TBS, the UAE had effectively “deported” the suspect at the request of the Japanese side. Ghasi had announced that he had obtained a “golden visa,” which allows him to reside in the UAE for 10 years, but that visa may have expired.
Immediately after his expulsion from the House of Councilors last year, the Metropolitan Police Department issued an arrest warrant for Gershie on suspicion of making habitual threats. The suspect Gershey had never returned to Japan during his term as a councilor or after the arrest warrant was issued, and on the contrary, he had moved and changed his base of operations in Dubai, and had not been cooperative with the Metropolitan Police Department.
When ordered to return his passport, he claimed that he had lost it. Last month, the police dispatched investigators to the UAE to ask for cooperation in the investigation, and it is believed that they were finally able to make an arrest.
Romi Hoshino, the former operator of the pirate site “Manga-mura,” who was arrested and imprisoned for three years overseas, wrote on Twitter in March
I see you got an arrest warrant for Mr. Gershie. If you are wanted internationally for a crime that is not a heinous crime, you are almost always given a prison sentence, even though it would normally be a suspended sentence.
“You’ve never seen a suspended sentence for an internationally wanted person, have you?
he surmised, based on his own experience.
Considering that he has been so angry with the police, and has also had a lot of run-ins with politicians and business tycoons, he may be using his “willful arrest” to get himself indicted by a bigger force.
He originally scammed BTS to meet him and fled to Dubai when the police started to move in. When he started YouTube, he quickly gained attention, but when his channel was banned, he started his own online salon.
At its peak, it was said to have 40,000 members at $30/month (approx. 4,200 yen), which amounted to monthly sales of about 170 million yen and annual sales of 2 billion yen. If he is arrested and detained, most of the members will leave. Since he has violated not only the habitual threats but also the passport return order, if he is charged with both, the charges may be even more serious due to the concurrent offenses. He may be thrown down from the paradise of Dubai to hell in one fell swoop,” said a TV news reporter.
The website of the online salon “GASYLE” says that it has become difficult to distribute to an unspecified number of people.
The site says, “We decided to focus on one-on-one interaction with each GAREW (editor’s note: a nickname for a member), rather than the one-on-many structure that has been used up until now.
It is written as follows.
The presence of the GAREW suspects would be superfluous when it comes to one-on-one interactions. The operation itself will be very challenging.
It seems that the dark hero “bubble” is finally coming to an end. ……
