Cybercrime report from JapanDate: March 02, 2006
The figure easily surpassed the previous year's record of 2,081 arrests, according to a report issued by the NPA, which began compiling statistics on cybercrimes in 1999.
In July, Japan's police beefed up patrols of the Internet amid an increase in e-mail scams, the transfer of illegal content and other crimes. For example, four men were arrested in November for allegedly slandering a Japanese celebrity by superimposing her face on a nude picture and posting it online.
