Kiyoji Nakajo apologizes for promoting his new song during a questioning session in the House of Councillors. He is a “disturbed member of the Diet.” ……

How much more of a public sensation does he need to cause?

The Japan Innovation Party’s Kiyoshi Nakajo, a member of the House of Councilors, was reported to have loaned money to an acquaintance at a high interest rate and may be charged with a violation of the Capital Subscription Law.

According to the first report in the online version, Councilor Nakajo had entered into a contract with his acquaintance, in which he loaned him 10 million yen in cash with an “annual interest rate of 60%. The May 7 edition of “Shukan Post” further details the possibility that he may have lent money at a “high interest rate” to someone other than his acquaintance who borrowed the money.

The upper limit for loans between individuals is 109.5% per annum, but if he lent to multiple people, he would be considered a “moneylender,” and if the interest rate exceeds 20% per annum, he may be in violation of the capital subscription law,” the report said. Although the job of a member of the Diet is to legislate, it would be an outrageous situation if he or she were to break the law. Why is he lending money at such a high interest rate that his acquaintances suffer, when he is a member of the Diet, the representative of the people? He should be accountable for his actions without running away from them.

Mr. Nakajo was first elected to the House of Councillors in July 2010, but Mr. Ichiro Matsui, then head of the Restoration Association of Japan (Ishin), wrote in his “X” that he was “a member of the House of Councillors before becoming a member of the Diet.

If this is true, Mr. Nakajo should resign gracefully,” he complained.

If this is the case, Mr. Nakajo should resign gracefully,” he complained.

In just two years, Senator Nakajo has been involved in a number of controversial issues, including the issue of CD promotion in the Diet, non-payment of pension, and the issue of karaoke handouts.

In the first place, Nakajo was reported in “Shukan Shincho” in 2008 to have participated in a golf competition to celebrate the birthday of the dissolved Yamaguchi clan leader Goto, along with an actor and an enka singer. Although he later denied it on his blog, saying that he did not know who hosted the event, it is highly doubtful that he was originally qualified enough to be included in the Ishin proportional number.

The annual “salary” of a Diet member is about 15 million yen, bonuses are about 6 million yen, the old correspondence fee is 12 million yen, legislative office expenses are 7.8 million yen, and secretarial salaries are 18 to 24 million yen, totaling about 60 to 65 million yen per member. In addition, green cars on Shinkansen trains, airplanes, etc., are also required.

In addition, green cars on the Shinkansen and unlimited rides on airplanes are paid for out of the national budget. Naturally, all of this is our blood tax.

It is unclear when Senator Nakajo made the loan to his acquaintance, but the money has no color. If he was still making money from the interest, then, depending on one’s perspective, it could be taken to mean that he was turning over the money he received as a Diet member at a high interest rate.

On social networking sites, he is likened to “YAKKIN Ushijima-kun,” a comic book about the illegal financial business,

Ushijima Kiyoshi.

Some people on social networking sites made fun of him, calling him “Ushijima Kiyoshi,” referring to the manga “YAKKIN Ushijima-kun,” which is inspired by the illegal financial business,

“Tell me it’s not true!”

“Tell me I’m lying!” and so on,

“Stop being a member of the Diet immediately!

Don’t you think you know the people!

and “Stop being a member of the Diet immediately!

In response to the growing criticism, on April 7, Nakajo’s office announced

“We are not asking for the payment of interest.

The interest rate section of the contract is “not required. The interest rate section of the contract was left “blank,” it said,

“We are only asking for repayment of the principal, not payment of interest,” the office commented.

He commented, “We only ask for repayment of the principal, not interest payments.

In the “Hisshiken Shokugunin” series, in which he played the role of “Yuuji the Shamisen-maker,” Councilor Nakajo has been killing “big bads” from darkness to darkness and clearing away the resentment of the common people. It is not true that in the real world, he was in a position of power as a member of the Diet and lent money at a high interest rate. ……
