The author comments on the alleged bribery involving the Japanese fisheries to overfish in various countries including Russia. The author criticizes the Australian negotiators for tolerating the move of the fisheries in the Asian nation. According to a report by "The Asia News," they used accounts in financial institutions in different regions such as in Cyprus to pay the border guards of Russia and conceal the illegal act. The tax authorities in Japan found the payments made from 2006 to 2009 when they investigated their deceptive accounting practices.
