Criminal Links Investigation

Measures against Criminal Organizations, Extreme Right Wing Groups, Soukai-ya (Extortionists)

We provide strategies for preventing extortion at AGMs, and investigations into those who could be anti-social types such as potential M&A parties, recipients of the allocation of shares, potential tenants, joint sureties, new franchise affiliates, parties involved in real estate transactions including agents, and complainers.

We provide reports on all investigations in a speedy fashion, and maintain high quality, accuracy and confidentiality. As of October 1st, 2011, all businesses in Japan are forbidden by the Organized Crime Exclusion Ordinances to supply profits to criminal groups.
To effectively manage a business, it’s important to carry out an investigation into criminal links of real estate buyers/sellers, new and existing partners and outsourcing firms, and at the time of a merger.
In some situations, to protect yourself and your family, it is also necessary to investigate personal acquaintances.
We are contacted by many clients who would like to know if someone is a member of a criminal group, as you can’t know just by appearances. Even with the introduction of the Organized Crime Exclusion Ordinances, it’s not possible to reduce the associated risks, without knowing how to check for criminal links. There are some firms offering consulting services for dealing with criminal connections, but to defend your business, the most important factor is taking precautions. Utilizing the data we have compiled over many years, we are able to offer cost effective and safe screening.

The below is stated within the Corporate Conduct Code of the Securities Listing Regulations:
■Mandatory article: Article 443 - Organized Crime Exclusion Ordinance

A large part of compliance is eliminating ties to criminal organizations.
