The head of a consulting company in Tokyo has been arrested by the Metropolitan Police Department for defrauding a company in Shizuoka Prefecture of 300 million yen by falsely claiming to acquire land for a landfill site for the construction of a tunnel for the Linear Central Shinkansen.

The suspect arrested is Hajime Omori, 40, a representative of a consulting firm in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo.

According to the Metropolitan Police, Omori applied for a loan from a company in Hamamatsu City, Shizuoka Prefecture, by falsely stating that the company would purchase land in Gifu Prefecture to be used as a dumping ground for spoil from the construction of a tunnel for the Linear Central Shinkansen Line.The suspect is suspected of fraud because, around August 2017, he transferred 300 million yen in cash to the account of the company that he actually manages. He is suspected of fraud.

To make it appear that the business was going smoothly, he prepared a fake land sale contract and had an acquaintance play the role of an employee of the construction company in charge of the construction work, suggesting that if the business went well, it would generate a profit of 11 billion yen.
A company in Hamamatsu City became suspicious of the loan and filed a criminal complaint three years ago, which was investigated by the Metropolitan Police Department.

The company has admitted to the allegations.

The Metropolitan Police Department is investigating the details of how he defrauded another company of about 500 million yen using a similar method.
