Sham marriages with foreigners up 14%

The number of fake marriage cases involving foreigners surged to 153 last year, up 14.2 percent, the National Police Agency (NPA) said Feb. 24. The police took action, such as questioning, arresting and sending cases to prosecutors, against 471 people, up 25.6 percent. They will keep a closer eye on sham marriage cases because they lead to a host of other crimes, the NPA said. Some foreigners get involved in crimes after obtaining resident alien status following bogus marriages to Japanese, it also said. (Kyodo News)
