Tokyo, 5 November: AUM Shinrikyo cultist Tomomasa Nakagawa on Wednesday [5 November] appealed a death penalty ruling the Tokyo District Court handed down recently for his role in the sarin gas attacks on the Tokyo subway system and the murder of a lawyer and his family.

On Wednesday last week, the Tokyo District Court sentenced Nakagawa, 41, to death for conspiring with AUM founder Shoko Asahara, 48, whose real name is Chizuo Matsumoto, to commit the crimes.

The ruling said there was no option but death for Nakagawa considering his responsibility in making the sarin at the instructions of Asahara, and causing the death of 25 innocent people.
