Nagoya sex club manager busted for threatening Aichi cop

Yoshinori Sato

TOKYO (TR) – Aichi Prefectural Police on Saturday arrested the manager of a chain of Nagoya sex clubs and two others for threatening an investigator of the Kodo-kai organized crime group, reports the Sankei Shimbun (Jan. 5).

Between July and August of 2010, the president of the Blue chain of sex clubs, Yoshinori Sato, 55, former employee Osamu Yamaguchi, 37, and investigative company president Koji Aoki, 42, are alleged to have participated in making threatening phone calls to the home of the investigator on five occasions.

The threats included possible violence and a mention of the name of the officer’s second daughter. “Your daughter is cute,” the caller reportedly said. “I don’t know what is going to happen to her.”

Sato and his former co-worker have denied the allegations, while the third has admitted involvement.

According to the Nikkei Shimbun (Jan. 5), the officer was investigating whether the Kodo-kai, an affiliate of the Yamaguchi-gumi, was utilizing the Blue group as a source of funds.

Sato was previously arrested in 2011 for assisting in concealing the identity of the number-two boss of the Kodo-kai during a round of golf. Sato received a prison term of two years and six months, which was suspended for four years.

On Sunday, according to the Sankei Shimbun (Jan. 6), prefectural police raided the offices of an affiliate company of the Blue group in Nagoya’s Higashi Ward.
