Philippine DOJ recommends charges against Kazuo Okada

The Philippine Department of Justice (DOJ) has recommended the filing of charges against Kazuo Okada for allegedly misappropriating over $3 million from the operator of the Okada Manila, Reuters reports.

The DOJ said it found cause to indict Okada for three counts of swindling after he acquired “through mistake or fraud” $3.15 million in salary and consultancy fees during his tenure as chief executive of Tiger Resort.

Tiger Resort previously said the payments were facilitated by its former president and were not authorised by its board, the news agency said.
