An Arrest in the Ozawa Camp

Hold the debate for just a second.

This evening's The Asahi Shimbun (paper edition) reports that Ozawa Ichirō's Rikuzankai fundraising organization has been raided by police.

The Sankei Shimbun (the electronic edition - there is no evening print edition) is claiming that arrest warrants have been issued for a Rikuzankai official and executives of the scandal-plagued Nishimatsu construction firm -- and that two of those sought have been arrested.

Oh golly.

The timing of this is stunning. These accusations may be true, but why now?

I don't trust the prosecutors as politically disinterested. Do you?
