AUM Shinrikyo cult founder Chizuo Matsumoto, also known as Shoko Asahara, heads for the Metropolitan Police Department where he went through 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, his wife Satoko and their son Tatsuhiko, on Sep. 8, 1995. He had already been indicted on murder and other charges, and his death sentence was finalized in 2006. (Mainichi)
