Given that the thickness of Japanese bills is about 0.1 mm, if given in ¥10,000 notes, that would be a stack 5,400,000 millimeters meters tall, or 5,400 meters, enough to circle a standard track about 13 times, if my calculations are correct.

Must have been a bank transfer.

Good. Go after that well known corrupt advertising company Dentsu too. Shut them down permanently.

Tokyo 2021. The sad farce that just keeps on giving.

Just like every other Olympics.... corrupt from start to finish.

World Cup soccer no different.

Not exactly news but good to at least see someone getting called out.

Someone forgot to delete or shred their files. Unlike the Nagano Olympics.

Is there no government officials implicated?

Not even one?

Good job!

And where are the prosecutors with Dentsu? The centre of the advertising?, And Mori the chairman of the Olympic committee until the last minute, The minister in charge of fiascos? . There are a lot of names missing here.

I’m waiting to hear how ‘Saint Thomas Bach,’ god … sorry … President of the IOC, would be outraged, I repeat outraged, by the scandals because he’s such a good, kind man who only thinks about the hopes and dreams of the kiddies!

And when does Mori get arrested?

Of course he doesn't. He's taking the bribes instead of dishing them out.

Rotten to the core.

Bribery is rare in America,most Americans see bribery as a personal insult, paying someone for something they are already entitled too,yes American do,do favors for people they know or like and give them a benefit that a stranger will ,I always give some public workers,I know thing , because they are always good to me

@Laguna,

unfortunately your math is way off.

1MJPY is 100 bills

10MJPY is 1000 bills

54MJPY is 5400 bills

you can fit that into a large shoulder bag.

Ram,5400 bill of American currency weight 12 pound

-2 ( +0 / -2 )

The I O C, Soccor World Cup, Indian Cricket League.

Just look back at their history.

150% Corrupt.

Arrest Mori Too!

5 ( +5 / -0 )

Will Dentsu ever get it's collar felt....

3 ( +3 / -0 )

Will they be detained for 104 days?

3 ( +3 / -0 )

It is good that the spotlight is on, but does anyone really think that any of these "arrests" will end up with people spending any real time in prison? I sure don't.

4 ( +4 / -0 )

Meanwhile, Mori is still on the loose.
