Defendant Sato pleaded guilty to the charges at his first trial. Comments on the Internet included, “He’s cute.

There is no mistake.

In response to the judge’s question, the defendant admitted the charges in a few short words.

On August 23, the Tokyo District Court heard the first trial of Rinka Sato, 22, who was involved in a case involving fraudulent payments for sustaining a new type of coronavirus. At his arraignment, when asked, “Is there any mistake in the indictment as read out?”, Sato admitted his guilt. Her father was also present in court and promised to cooperate with his daughter’s rehabilitation. When asked by the prosecutor, “What do you think of your father’s story?

I should have asked for a little more ……. I couldn’t stop because I wanted money. I was worried about my future, like having to save 20 million yen for retirement.”

He was also reportedly living with a core member

Sato was reportedly paid at least 600,000 yen. He said he would repay the money he received through the scam by saving it.

The group that perpetrated the fraud included Daiki Matsue, who returned from Dubai in June, a former employee of the Tokyo Regional Taxation Bureau, and a former employee of Daiwa Securities Co. Sato was also a member of the group. They held seminars to recruit high school and university students and persuaded them to invest in crypto assets. If you invest in crypto assets, you can become a sole proprietor and legally apply for benefits.

The number of names of the applicants receiving benefits was about 200. The total amount of damage amounted to 200 million yen. Sato is alleged to have applied for the Sustaining Benefit by pretending to be a sole proprietor using documents such as tax returns forged by a former employee of the Tokyo Regional Taxation Bureau.

Sato, a native of Niigata, had been working for a real estate company in Tokyo since April 2010. There are reports that he was temporarily in a relationship with a core member of the group and was living together in a luxury apartment in Minato Ward. The reporter continues, “One of the core members of the group was deceitful.

Some of the core members of the group were leading luxurious lives with the money they had swindled. In a video showing a seminar they held, one of the members is seen getting out of a Rolls Royce worth about 47 million yen. The main suspect, Matsue, is said to have owned a luxury car, a Lamborghini. It is possible that Sato interacted with them and became involved in the benefit fraud case.

The trial of the group members is expected to reveal their actual living conditions and detailed methods of fraud.
