TOKYO May 14 —
Police on Wednesday raided several facilities and searched two dozen vehicles owned by a cult whose members have riveted Japan as they travel across
the country in an all-white caravan, warning the end of the world is near.
Dozens of investigators searched the Pana Wave Laboratory cult's main facility in Fukui, western Japan, and its dome-shaped shelters at a mountain
village north of Tokyo on suspicion the group falsified vehicle registrations, police said.
The cult says it seeks refuge from deadly electromagnetic waves generated by power lines and controlled by "left-wing elements." Members believe
white fabric helps neutralize the waves that are harming their leader's health.
They also say the approach of a 10th planet will cause a global calamity within the next week or so.
Chino recently released a statement urging people to protect Tama-chan, a bearded seal that has become a national mascot since appearing in rivers
near Tokyo, far from its natural habitat in the icy Bering Sea. Domestic media reports have expressed concern that Pana Wave Laboratory was hoping to
capture the animal.
lol so they have a fetish for bearded seals as well? lol
Could turn out to be another Heavens Gate suicide .......just have to wait and see.
