Japan’s former State Administration of Taxation inspector was sued, and he operated tens of thousands of transactions such as encryption during working hours.

On April 26, the Special Department of the Tokyo District Prosecutor's Office in Japan sued the former IRS inspector, Kondo, for allegedly making false official documents. Kondo has acknowledged all relevant facts. According to the content of the indictment, in January 2019, when Kondo was responsible for investigating tax evasion, in order to obtain credit card information of his wife unrelated to the tax evasion incident, the investigation document was produced in the name of the head of the IRS, and the credit card company was required to respond. In addition, Kondo has operated as many as 13,620 foreign exchange and cryptocurrency transactions using his mobile phone during his work. On April 26, the Tokyo National Taxation Bureau dismissed Kondo.
