Now the police is doing their job
They say frontline officers had been frustrated with high-handed methods by zainichi from North Korea. Every time before they raid on the buildings, they got an order to stop them from raiding. However, the top official appointed by Japanese PM Abe pledged a hard-line attitude toward North Korea. The succesive raids defenately reflect their policy. One of the arrests included a remarkable result, capturing a big scientist who learned Engineering at Tokyo university. He was a representative figure on development Taepodong. Other arrests on Koreans may not be related to North Korea, but I listed them.
I wanted to describe the details on each raid, but it's so many! Let me just make short comments: See this article or this for the past raids. You may see how terrific zainichi's reactions are. It's like Yakuza. Well, they are indeed Yakuza if you get to know the truth, though.

One of the purposes of those raids is of course cutting money source for DPRK. Since their tax declaration had been free from inspection by their local tax office, cheating was pretty easy. They send money to DPRK in part due to their loyalty. Investigation of organized crime, abduction, by zainichi groups is another reason. The abductions were well-planned crimes carried out by spies with support of local zainichi civilians.
I've found more more crimes by Koreans during this past three months, but I'm out! So tired.
