The police arrested three Chinese men and women on suspicion of violating the Banking Law, working with an underground bank, illegally remitting money to China at the request of Chinese residents in Japan. The police are investigating the sending of 100 million yen illegally.
All three people arrested are Chinese, including a 48-year-old husband and a 44-year-old younger brother, suspected of being a trader in Nagoya City, Mirei Hayashi (48 years old).
According to police investigations, the three are called “clandestine banks”, which retain the Japanese yen of the Chinese in Japan and deliver Chinese money of the same value to designated recipients in China.
Hayashi said: We do not charge any fees. So I didn’t think it was an illegal act.
The police followed up with the investigation.
