– Confession of Yamagami, the assassin of the former Prime Minister of Japan
– Exit polls suggest Abe’s ruling party will win a majority in Japan’s parliamentary elections
TOKYO: The man who assassinated former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has made a major statement to police about why he was killed. “My mother was financially distressed because of Shinzo Abe,” the killer said. Because of Shinzo Abe, my family’s financial situation was very poor.
Tetsuya Yamagami, the 31-year-old killer of Shinzo Abe, told police that his mother’s financial situation had deteriorated due to a religious group and she had become a debtor. I had been planning the assassination of Shinzo Abe for months. For this he also made a 20 cm gun. Talking to the young man’s neighbor, he said that he was very quiet and did not talk much with the people.
It is alleged that the young man told police that Shinzo Abe had supported a religious organization that my mother had financially collapsed by donating to. The man also planned to carry out a bomb attack before planning to fire a gun. He was going to have the opportunity to attack Shinzo Abe at several events.
Japan, on the other hand, became embroiled in controversy after the death of Shinzo Abe, amid which elections for Japan’s Rajya Sabha were held on Sunday. Exit polls, meanwhile, suggest Shinzo Abe’s party could win a majority because of sympathy. The ruling Liberal Democratic Party could win a majority with 12 seats.
