House of Representatives member Junichiro Koga, expelled from the Democratic Party of Japan for making false academic claims, received 3 million yen in donations from a South Korean resident of Japan, according to his political funds documents.

This may have violated the Political Funds Control Law, which bans accepting political donations from foreigners. It is aimed at preventing foreigners from influencing politics.
