A citizens’ group has filed a criminal complaint against Tokyo Gov. Naoki Inose for receiving ¥50 million from a hospital chain at the center of his campaign money scandal, sources said Monday.

The group headed by Tamaki Mitsui, a former public prosecutor, sent the complaint against Inose — as well as Torao Tokuda, former chief of the Tokushukai hospital group, and Takeshi Tokuda, his son and a member of the Lower House — to the Tokyo District Public Prosecutor’s Office, the sources said.
