Public Prosecutor Arrested: In one of the most publicized scandals in the history of the Japanese Public Prosecutors Office, a former Chief Prosecutor of the Special Investigation Squad of the Osaka District Public Prosecutors Office, Tsunehiko Maeda, was arrested September 21, 2010. He has been charged with falsifying evidence in a case against a former official of the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare. In Japan, with its 99 percent conviction rate, the scandal has led to further questioning of prosecutorial conduct. Japanese prosecutors have greater ability to lead police-like investigations than their counterparts in many other countries.
