Tokyo Olympics: Japan Authorities Seek Criminal Charges Against Dentsu And Others Over Contracts

Japan’s Fair Trade Commission said it filed criminal complaints against Dentsu Group along with five more advertising firms plus seven individuals over alleged bid-rigging on contracts for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, as per Reuters.  

The complaint is a fresh development after months of investigations into alleged corruption relating to the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics Games held in 2021.


“We determined that this is a malicious and serious case that will have a broad impact on people’s lives,” FTC investigator Goh Okumura said while speaking at a media briefing. 

The other companies are Hakuhodo DY Holdings Inc 2433.T, Tokyu Agency Inc, Fuji Creative Corporation, Cerespo Co 9625.T and Same Two Inc, the FTC said. 


Prosecutors recently arrested a former Tokyo Olympics organising committee official along with executives at Dentsu and others. 

Dentsu, Cerespo and Fuji Creative can no longer bid at the industry, foreign and education ministries for 9 months.
