Advertising Exec Arrested For 4th Time, Tied To Winter Olympics

Japan continues to negotiate with the International Olympic Committee for the 2030 Winter Olympics, sullying the legacy of the organizing committee.

On suspicion of receiving bribes, a former advertising executive at the center of an Olympic sponsorship scandal was arrested for the fourth time this week.

According to reports, prosecutors raided ADK Marketing Solutions & Sun Arrow, which made the Miraitowa & Someity mascots for the Olympics & Paralympics.

Haruyuki Takahashi has been accused of accepting bribes from officials at three companies, including Aoki Holdings, which dressed Japan’s Olympic team.

Here’s what the article states –

“French prosecutors have been looking into allegations that some IOC members may have been bribed to vote for Tokyo when the city was picked in 2013.

That scandal three years ago forced the resignation of Japanese Olympic Committee head Tsunekazu Takeda, who was also an IOC member.

The Switzerland-based IOC has tried to distance itself from the scandal. IOC President Thomas Bach did not attend a celebration last weekend at Tokyo’s National Stadium to mark the one-year anniversary of the one-year delayed Olympics. He said he had a scheduling conflict.”
