TOKYO: Tokyo prosecutors have searched the home of ex-Tokyo 2020 Olympic board member Haruyuki Takahashi in connection to suspected inappropriate payments made to him by clothes retailer Aoki Holdings, Kyodo reported on Tuesday (Jul 26).

The investigation is looking at whether payments of at least 45 million yen (US$325,544) between 2017 and 2021 to a company run by Takahashi violated a law that prohibits public servants from taking money in relation to their positions.
