Japanese police on Wednesday arrested the manager of actress Jang Ja-yeon, who committed suicide in March. The CEO of Jang's management agency, identified as Kim, is suspected of pimping the actress to influential entertainment and business, and threatening her with violence if she refused.

Kim was arrested in a stakeout on his way to a meeting at a Tokyo hotel on Wednesday afternoon. He was charged with being in Japan illegally and failing to provide a passport.

The Japanese government promptly notified Korea of the arrest. A National Police Agency official said the Korean police provided key information about Kim's hiding place and his schedule to Japanese police through the police attache in Tokyo.

Kim's arrest is expected to speed up a stalled investigation of the scandal surrounding Jang's suicide. Kim can be repatriated either under a mutual extradition treaty, which requires a court hearing, or he can be deported immediately for illegally staying in Japan.

A Justice Ministry official said, "We asked the Japanese Justice Ministry to expel Kim, and it seems we can have him back here in two or three days to a week at most".
