9 out of 10 Aum Shinrikyo crime victims apply for government relief


ReligionNewsBlog.com • Friday November 19, 2010

Nearly 6,000 people, or about 91 percent, of eligible victims of the 1995 sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway and other crimes committed by the Aum Shinrikyo cult had applied for government relief under the law by the end of October, Japan’s National Police Agency has announced.

The government has provided relief payments to the bereaved relatives of 25 people, 101 people who were disabled and 5,658 people who were injured in eight Aum cases, also including the 1994 sarin attack in Nagano Prefecture and the murder of a lawyer and his family in 1989.
