Former Tokyo Olympics official charged for the fourth time in a corruption case

Prosecutors filed a fourth indictment on Wednesday against a former Tokyo Olympics executive for receiving bribes totaling about 54 million yen ($370,000) from a major advertising company and a business which sold plush dolls of the games’ mascots.

In the growing scandal that tarnished the image of the Olympics and Paralympics last year, the latest indictment adds to previous charges against Haruyuki Takahashi of taking bribes from three other companies in exchange for their help in being selected as an event sponsor or marketer.
