All national dailies reported on Saturday that the Tokyo District Prosecutors Office filed a request with the Tokyo District Court on Friday for the rescindment of its earlier accusation that two Yokohama businessmen illegally exported to China and South Korea a device that could be used to make biological weapons. The two defendants, who were arrested in March of 2020, denied charges that they had violated the Foreign Exchange Law. The prosecutors’ office reportedly said a reinvestigation found that the export of the device in question did not require preapproval by public authorities.
