Monthly bulletin of names of individuals and companies connected to organized crime/sokaiya that have approached private businesses in Osaka and Tokyo.
Weekly sweep of Japanese investigative black media on cases relating to corruption, criminal and organized crime activities

Rep Screen Check
Research is conducted through an off-line resource of 58 Japanese limited circulation and non-commercial investigative media including such publications as Asahi Genyo, Shukan Kinyobi, Shukan Jitsuwa, Gekkan Jitsuwa, Zaikai-Tenbo and others. The library resource dates back to post WWII and contains over 5 million articles. Research is also conducted through the Japanese internet focusing on anonymous forums such as 2channel and Japanese language blogs to identify any allegations or suggestions of connections to ASF’s or general criminal activities.
Japanese Language Press Search
A comprehensive search is conducted using Japan’s largest local language press database covering over 150 newspapers and mass circulation publications to identify any allegations or stories in the press over the last 25 years relating to connections to ASF’s or general criminal activities.
