Cleopatra7 posted a topic in CultsJapan appears to be ready to execute some of the Aum Shinrikyo members involved in the deadly 1995 sarin has attack on the Tokyo subway: https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/world/2018/mar/20/japan-prepares-to-execute-up-to-13-members-of-aum-shinrikyo-cult Japan is one of the few industrialized countries that still has the deal that penalty, but unlike the US, they’re rather secretive about it.

The wikipedia page on the group is suprisingly good, as is the page on the terrorist attack: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aum_Shinrikyo https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tokyo_subway_sarin_attack Incredibly, Aum Shinrikyo still exists today under the new name Aleph, much like how the Children of God and the Moonies have also given themselves new names to rebrand and obscure their prior bad acts.
