In a hideous way… an official of the Japanese Olympic Committee committed suicide


A senior official of the Japanese Olympic Committee died after throwing himself in front of a subway train Monday morning, local Nippon TV reported, citing sources in the Tokyo metropolitan police.

According to the TV network, the police are investigating the death of 52-year-old official, Yasushi Moriya, as a suicide, according to China TV Network International.

Many Japanese oppose Tokyo’s hosting of the Olympic Games this year in light of the outbreak of the Corona virus, as an opinion poll showed that about 80 percent of Japanese oppose hosting this tournament.

A decision was made to prevent fans from coming to Japan, with the decision on the number of local fans allowed to attend the games after the end of the state of emergency in Tokyo on June 20.

The number of officials and participants in delegations coming to Tokyo from abroad was also reduced by almost half, bringing the number to 78,000, with calls for a further reduction.

Economics researchers warn that canceling the Olympics will cost Japan about 1.8 trillion yen ($16.6 billion), according to AFP.
