Tokyo prosecutors on Monday raided the offices of a political group of the Japan Dental Association and searched the home of the group’s top executive over the alleged failure to report 20 million yen in political donations in 2001 and 2002.

Sources said agents of the Tokyo District Prosecutor’s Office searched the home of Sadao Usuda, JDA president and head of the political group, in Mitaka, western Tokyo, as well as other facilities.
