We have consulted with the police about the person who has been persistently sending YuuRi extreme slurs such as “D*e” and “H*ng yourself” along with grotesque images, and after submitting all the evidence, a criminal complaint has been accepted and an investigation will be conducted for the crime of intimidation.
The investigation by the Criminal Investigation Division is currently underway and additional evidence will be submitted if the damage continues.
In the event of an arrest for the crime of intimidation, a penalty of up to two years in prison or a fine of up to 300,000 yen will be imposed.
In addition, although we do not ostensibly disclose this information, we are working with our lawyers to take appropriate action regarding excessive slander and libel.
We will never tolerate malicious acts of slander or vandalism.
We will continue to take strict measures to deal with any behavior that offends YuuRi’s activities and fans.
We sincerely ask for the continued patronage of our fans.YuuRi
