Sep 24 - Japanese yakuza boss Satoru Nomura sentenced to death for ordering murder

Key points:

-Kudo-kai crime syndicate boss Satoru Nomura has been given a death sentence
-Nomura's number two Fumio Tanoue was jailed for life
-Japan is one of the few developed nations to retain the death penalty

A Japanese court has sentenced a yakuza mafia boss to death after he ordered a murder and attacks on three other citizens.

Satoru Nomura, the 74-year-old head of the Kudo-kai crime syndicate in south-west Japan, denied accusations he had masterminded the violent a*saults on ordinary people.

Fukuoka District Court confirmed it had sentenced Nomura to death, while Japanese media said the verdict came despite a lack of evidence directly linking him to the crimes.

"I asked for a fair decision … You will regret this for the rest of your life," Nomura told the judge after his sentencing, according to the Nishinippon Shimbun newspaper.

The yakuza were long tolerated in Japan as a necessary evil for ensuring order on the streets and getting things done quickly, however dubious the means.

But in recent decades, stiffer anti-gang regulations, waning social tolerance and a weak economy have resulted in steadily falling yakuza memberships.

Nomura was found guilty of ordering the fatal 1998 shooting of an ex-boss of a fisheries cooperative who exerted influence over port construction projects, major media outlets said.

He was also behind a 2014 attack on a relative of the murder victim, and a 2013 knife attack against a nurse at a clinic where Nomura was seeking treatment, the court reportedly said.

The 2012 shooting of a former police official who had investigated the Kudo-kai was also deemed Nomura's responsibility.

The official survived with serious injuries to his waist and legs, media said.

Prosecutors reportedly argued that Nomura had exerted absolute control over the syndicate.

His number two, Fumio Tanoue, was jailed for life on Tuesday, the court said.

The yakuza grew from the chaos of post-war Japan into multi-billion-dollar criminal organisations, involved in everything from drugs and prostitution to protection rackets and white-collar crime.

Unlike the Italian Mafia or Chinese triads, yakuza have long occupied a grey area in Japanese society — they are not illegal, and each group has its own headquarters in full view of police.

Japan's use of the death penalty

With more than 100 inmates on death row, Japan is one of few developed nations to retain the death penalty.

Convicts are executed by hanging.

According to Amnesty International, executions in Japan are "shrouded in secrecy, with prisoners typically given only a few hours' notice and some given no warning at all before their death sentences are carried out".

Japan carried out 18 executions in 2018 and 2019.

No executions were carried out in 2020, however — the first time since 2011.

"Many foreign governments are reluctant to extradite criminal suspects to Japan because of its use of capital punishment," said an editorial in the Asahi Shimbun newspaper last month.

"Japan only has extradition treaties with the United States and South Korea."

Negotiations over a defence pact between Australia and Japan last year stalled over the death penalty issue.

But public support for capital punishment remains high despite international criticism, including from rights groups.

First this aint a black people issue.. Honestly, none of us live in Japan, so your overreaching either way. Like this dude death sentence is going to butterfly effect n*ggas in the US.... It's not even like the laws in Japan matter to us. We not there. So, while it's low brow, it seems fine for people to freely to discuss what they wish from this. What would you suggest we focus on here?

First thing I got from this is that the yakuza seems to be able to operate in the open and they all know he's the yakuza boss (the word alleged isn't even used). He doesn't deny that he's the head of a crime family only that he didn't order the hit...


Then I read this

most yakuza activity is non-criminal, so it's not surprising
