"Don't let bad guys like us get away with it"
During 1984 and 1985 an unknown individual or group began a campaign of consumer terrorism against the Japanese industrial confectioneries Ezaki Glico and Morinaga. The perpetrators began by kidnapping the President of Glico, and after his escape continued to send threatening demands for money to stop the contamination of products, referring to themselves as the Monster with 21 Faces. The series of events became known in Japan by the official police designation, Metropolitan Designated Case 114 and remains unsolved.
