安倍首相と暴力団の関係を調査していた記者が重症に!国境なき記者団(RSF)が懸念を表明

*官邸
安倍晋三首相とヤクザ(暴力団)の関係を調査していた記者が新宿の階段で転落し、重症となった問題が波紋を広げています。
転落して重症となったのは記者の山岡俊介氏で、山岡氏は安倍首相が暴力団に選挙妨害を依頼した問題を調査していました。

この転落事故について国境なき記者団(RSF)が公式ホームページ上で、「安倍首相とヤクザの関係を調査した山岡俊介氏が階段転落で大ケガした事件には疑問がある」などと強い懸念を表明。
日本の警察が捜査要請を断ったとして、日本当局が転落事故を調査するべきだと指摘していました。

警察は今回の転落事故の捜査要請を「事件のエリアをカバーする監視カメラはない」というような理由で断っており、ネット上では警察の対応に疑問の声が相次いでいます。
日本のトップが関わっている問題だけに、内容次第では大きな騒動に発展するかもしれません。

 

Japan must look into the suspicious fall of journalist investigating links between Prime Minister and mafia

RSF calls on Japanese authorities to shed light on the suspicious fall of a journalist, who is known for his investigation in the supposed links between the prime minister and the mafia, that caused him to be hospitalized.

Shunsuke Yamaoka, 59, founder of the Japanese-language investigation website Access Journal, was left unconscious on August 7th after a 20-step fall that gave him a fractured shoulder and 20 stitches in the forehead in the stairs of Tokyo’s Shinjuku subway station. The incident costed Yamaoka a day in the hospital and more than a month of recovery. The journalist is convinced that his fall was not accidental.

The independent journalist, who investigated possible links between Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and the Japanese mafia, claims that he has received numerous threatening letters and faced an attempted fire at his house over the past years. According to Yamaoka, the police refused to launch an investigation as “there is no surveillance camera covering the area” of the incident.

“Considering the subject that the journalist was covering, such an unnatural fall merits a serious investigation, which is clearly not being done right now” said Cedric Alviani, director of the East Asia office of Reporters Without Borders ( RSF). Alviani calls on the Shinjuku Police Station “to peel all the surveillance videos in the surrounding area, to call for witnesses to clear up the fall and to look into all the threats that the journalist received.”

Since Nationalist Prime Minister Shinzo Abe came to power in 2012, Japanese journalists have complained of a general climate of mistrust and hostility towards them, especially when they are dealing with the government.

Japan ranks 67th out of 180 in the Press Freedom Index 2018 established by RSF.
