Between February 2015 and April 2016, three men, including a yakuza, received at least 160,000 yen ($ 1,400) commission for sending two people to companies performing decontamination work in Fukushima.

The three men, who were acting without authorization from the Ministry of Labor, were arrested by Tokyo police, Tokyo Reporter reported.

The mafioso, Hidenobu Maruta (48), is head of a band affiliated with Yamaguchi-gumi, Japan’s largest criminal organization.

The two workers who sent the prefecture struck by the nuclear disaster were not the only ones.
