False bomb threat at Romanian Embassy in Tokyo

The Romanian Foreign Affairs Ministry (MAE) announced that the Romanian Embassy to Tokyo received yesterday around 11 AM local time a false bomb threat from an unidentified person. “Today, March 5, 2013, 11 AM local time, the Romanian Embassy in Tokyo received by telephone a bomb threat from an unidentified person that spoke Japanese. According to the procedures applicable in these situations, all prevention and defense measures were immediately taken, the competent Japanese authorities being informed,” the MAE points out, being quoted by Mediafax. The Romanian Embassy has filed an official complaint with the relevant Japanese structures, MAE informs. According to Realitatea TV, the alleged reason behind this threat has to do with the scandal that started after a Romanian killed a Japanese woman in Tokyo at the end of last week. The same source claims that an extremist group that launched the threat allegedly asked for the expulsion of Romanians from Japan because they allegedly have “the DNA of criminals.”
