''Some 58 billion yen worth of digital money NEM was stolen from its operator Coincheck Inc in January 2018. While the Metropolitan Police Department will continue its investigation of the theft, it will soon conclude its probe into those exchanging stolen NEM as it is nearing the statute of limitations.''

The statute of limitations is only 3 years ???

Jacobo.... Yes, the statute of limitations for financial crime is 3 years in Japan. Its almost as if the regulations were scripted by those likely to commit financial crimes...

Residents of Japan?

Masaki Kitamoto, 40, and Takayoshi Doi, 31, whose trade volumes were fairly large compared with others, were arrested in March 2020. Other suspects were charged later.

So, the accused are Japanese.

The suspects, all of whom have been arrested and referred to prosecutors

They are just suspects, just charged, but we already know they are Masaki Kitamoto, 40, and Takayoshi Doi, 31.. Before the judge or court made a decision, the prosecutors already decided the case. In case they later prove themselves they were innoncent, their lifes will be ruined. Because "but they were in TV and TV said so!!"
