On the 7th, the former Unification Church announced that it would deposit up to 100 billion yen to the government as a "special deposit" as a source of funds in the event that compensation is required for former believers. In response, the government says that it has no legal basis for receiving a deposit and cannot comply.

The former Unification Church, which the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology requested from the court for a dissolution order, announced on the 7th that it will deposit up to 100 billion yen as a "special deposit" to the government as a source of funds in the event that compensation is required for former believers.

In response, the government said that it had no legal basis for receiving a deposit and could not respond, and Chief Cabinet Secretary Matsuno said, "Deposits can only be made when stipulated by law."

On the other hand, the ruling and opposition parties have voiced that the intentions of the cult are not clear, and each has decided to hasten the creation of the necessary mechanisms for the relief of the victims.

On the ruling party's side, the working teams of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) and the New Komeito Party (Komeito) intend to finalize a direction by the middle of this month, based on interviews with victims.

Specifically, in addition to strengthening the Foreign Exchange Law = Foreign Exchange and Foreign Trade Act to prevent the transfer of assets overseas, a proposal to enhance the consultation system is being considered.

On the opposition side, Azumi, chairman of the Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan's Diet Measures Committee, said, "If there is no law, it will be a question of whether it is really possible to compensate the victims after the dissolution order is issued."

The Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan and the Japan Restoration Association have each submitted a bill to preserve the assets of the cult in order to provide relief to the victims, and will continue to urge the ruling party to pass it in the current Diet session.
