The program said while Asahara kept silent about the various crimes the cult committed, it obtained records of Asahara’s remarks to his lawyer. The program showed that Asahara tried to blame everything on his disciples and never apologized or expressed remorse, while senior cult members expressed remorse and said they acted on the instruction of their guru.
