As announced before, the directors of Japan Shogi Association put 9-Dan Hiroyuki Miura under punitive suspension on October 12th for all games from October 12th 2016 until December 31st 2016.
Japan Shogi Association held a board meeting on October 24th regarding this matter, and decided to establish a committee consisting of third party members to have the case investigated. The head of the committee is Mr. Keiichi Tadaki (lawyer and the former Public Prosecutor General). We asked the committee to evaluate the appropriateness of the punitive suspension, and to investigate 9-Dan Miura's conducts during the alleged games.
