on suspicion of defrauding a governmental institution of 431 million yen in subsidies.

There's another one.

But ask yourself - irrespective of whether fraud has occured or not - how do you as a tax payer feel about 431 million yen of our money in this instance getting dished out as subsidies?

Why the special privilege for so many favoured interests? 

Why don't we just demand government eliminate all privilege, and aim for a society in which all people work for their living like (what I both suppose and hope is) the majority of tax payers?

This should be the real story. These scandals can only occur because the politicians and bereaucrats build up some programs with our money to secure their own power.
