TOKYO, Japan – Wednesday local law enforcement officers claimed the arrest of three ex members of the Aum Shinrikyo cult. They were identified as Toshiyuki Kosugi, Tetsuya Uemura and Mitsuo Sunaoshi and are linked to the 1995 assassination attempt on the nation's chief of police.
 



BBC NEWS
Toshiyuki Kosugi was once a senior police officer himself. He initially confessed to shooting Mr Kunimatsu in 1996, but no charges were brought against him due to lack of evidence.

According to the Japanese media, Wednesday's arrests came as a result of new information gained from questioning Mr Kosugi further.


Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

The shooting that seriously injured Takaji Kunimatsu, came just ten days after the Tokyo subway sarin gas attack, killing 12, for which the cult is also held responsible. Apparently, the attack was aimed at obstructing the investigation into the nerve gas attack. The true motives for that terrible incident are still unknown but it seems that the group, mixing Buddhism, Christianity and Hinduism, believed that Armageddon was imminent.

The organisation's mastermind, former cult leader Shoko Asahara, plus 11 others have recently been sentenced to death. Aum Shinrikyo, having 1,600 members, is now named Aleph and claims to be harmless. However they remain under close surveillance of Japan's intelligence agency. According to the agency, Aum cultist are still faithful to Ashara's twisted ideologies and a clear danger to public safety.

The Daily Yomiuri Online article below is a fine addition to the story above, giving detailed information on the plot. In my opinion it's fairly interesting that a former law enforcement officer was involved. However, enough said regarding the present arrests. Let's hope or pray for a future definite case closed.

Lot's of fun conspiracies involving Aum.

Some weeks before his death, Murai was present at a press conference in Tokyo’s Foreign Press Club, where Aum’s guru, Shoko Asahara, claimed that the massive earthquake that devastated the City of Kobe was an act of war. As incredible as these assertions appear, they are not without some substance.
...
The Russia-Japan College was used by Aum as a platform to recruit high level scientists working on sophisticated weapons research and development.
...
Nichiren’s primary teaching involved the active suppression of all other rival sects. In addition he zealously preached a doctrine of "Final War" (saisho senso) to be fought against the Christian west and the Islamic world.
...
Mason has been investigating a series of peculiar seismic "events" and other strange phenomena in the vast open spaces of Western Australia. These include 173 tremors registering 3-0 on the Richter scale, the majority of which occurred in the space of just 10 months. Significantly, Mason found that the epi-centres of these quakes were spaced at 10 kilometre intervals. Clearly, they are not of natural origin. Mason’s interest in the Aum cult followed his discovery of a large unexplained earthquake featuring strange aerial phenomena. This quake, registering 3.7 on the Richter scale took place on 28 May 1993 close to Banjawarn sheep station. Amazingly, Aum Shinrikyo commenced negotiations to purchase the sheep station three days before the earthquake.
...
During June 1987, Ginga registered a massive pulse of gamma rays emanating from below the orbiting satellite. Hasty investigation showed the radiation emissions were coming from Kosmos 1900, a soviet satellite. The satellite was radiating the upper atmosphere Van Allen belts. The conclusion was that the Russians were engaged in weather engineering as well as a developing a space platform for missile defence and earthquake induction.
