Japan Prepares to Execute Members of Aum Shinrikyo Cult

Recommended Posts

Japan appears to be ready to execute some of the Aum Shinrikyo members involved in the deadly 1995 sarin has attack on the Tokyo subway:

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. I believe the method used is hanging. The wikipedia page on the group is suprisingly good, as is the page on the terrorist 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.

If anyone is interested in this topic I would highly recommend the Last Podcast on the Left's series on the cult. It's highly informative, although their sense of humor probably isn't for everyone.
