In an attempted subsidy fraud involving a business that allows free PCR tests for the new coronavirus, the Metropolitan Police Department has re-arrested employees of real estate companies for trying to defraud them of 3 million yen.
A total of six people were rearrested, including Daisuke Ueshima (40), the president of a medical corporation in Osaka City that was contracted for testing business, and Yohei Ando (40), an employee of a real estate company that operated a PCR testing site.
According to the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department, there is a suspicion of attempted fraud that tried to defraud about 6 million yen in subsidies for July last year by submitting a false performance report that inflated the number of tests related to a business in Tokyo that allows people to receive PCR tests for the new corona for free.
The suspects applied for subsidies of about 7.3 billion yen in about 6000,6 cases from June to November last year, and the Metropolitan Police Department arrested them this month on suspicion of trying to defraud them of about 11 million yen in subsidies for August last year.
In July last year, it is estimated that 17% to 12% of the approximately 8000,8 applications were false reports.
The amount of the subsidy was lowered in September last year, and the Metropolitan Police Department is investigating the suspicion that he repeatedly applied fraudulently at the last minute.
