At least three people, allegedly affiliated with the Sumiyosh-kai crime group were arrested for forcing a hearing impaired woman to write a document apologizing for an offense she did not commit.
The arrests included the chief of the Sumiyoshi crime group (54) and his wife Lee Hee Yi (44). In June last year they were acquainted with a woman with a hearing impairment in Tokyo’s Chuo Ward. The suspicion is that Lee threatened her, forcing her to write a document apologizing for an offense.
According to the Metropolitan Police Department, Lee was living with an 82-year-old man with hearing impairment, and he seems to have used men’s pension and the like without permission. The hearing impaired woman noticed this when the man was moved to a ward facility. Lee had threatened the woman in sign language forced her to write a letter that promises to bring the man back.
