For those who do not remember, Ishii earned the nickname “Japanese Federal” after appearing in photos and videos escorting arrested and investigated Operation Lava jet. According to ESP , he led the suspects to the Federal Police in Curitiba during the 30 stages of the biggest operation against corruption that the country has ever seen. His projection was such that the agent has inspired carnival marching, Olinda doll and even mask.

No information on Ishii prison grounds. The agent was one of 23 federal police targets of Operation Anaconda, initiated in 2003 to establish a scheme formed by agents of the PF and the Internal Revenue Service which facilitated the smuggling of illegal goods on the border with Paraguay in Foz do Iguaçu (PR). Ishii also responds to three derivative processes of Operation Anaconda, one in the criminal sphere, other administrative and a third for administrative misconduct.

In addition, in 2009, he was sentenced by the Federal Court in Parana for corruption and embezzlement by facilitating contraband entry of Paraguay in Brazil.
