The National Police Agency said Thursday it will divide ¥10 million in cash rewards among four parties for providing information that led to the arrest of Tatsuya Ichihashi, the suspect in the 2007 murder of Briton Lindsay Ann Hawker.

The payments are the first since the state-funded rewards debuted in April 2007. The NPA didn’t identify the recipients to protect their privacy.
