AUM Shinrikyo cult founder Chizuo Matsumoto, or Shoko Asahara, leaves the Metropolitan Police Department to go through the proceedings for the disclosure of the reason for detention at the Tokyo District Court after he was served with a fresh arrest warrant for the 1989 murders of lawyer Tsutsumi Sakamoto and his family, on Sep. 8, 1995. Matsumoto had already been indicted on a separate murder case. His death sentence was finalized in 2006. (Mainichi)
