NHK: In Japan, more than 80 members of parliament from the ruling LDP violated financial reporting

A loud scandal surrounding the ruling party in Japan erupted at the end of last year. It boils down to the fact that internal party groups of deputies in the LDP, factions, established standards for their members to raise funds by selling tickets to paid meetings. If one of the faction members exceeded the established norm, the difference between the norm and the actual amount collected was supposed to be returned to him in the form of a so-called kickback without corresponding reflection in the financial statements.
