Jurip A.S.A Al, Rola's father, has been placed on the international wanted list for fraud.

Jurip A.S.A Al(ジュリップ・エイエスエイ・アル) has been placed on the international wanted list for suspected fraud by Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department(警視庁), police officials said on June 25. He is suspected of defrauding Setagaya Ward(世田谷区) office of 870,000 yen in benefits related to national health insurance. In addition, he is said to be a ringleader of Bangladeshi swindlers' group in Japan. He has stayed in Bangladesh since August 2012, and refuses to return to Japan.

This kind of fraud case is a daily event in Japan. However, the news above is specifically attracting Japanese people's attention because Jurip is the father of Rola.

Rola(ローラ) is a Japanese fashion model and TV personality. She appears on a lot of TV shows in Japan recently because her casual talk is funny. Although Japanese people generally talk to older people using the polite form of speech, she talks to anyone (even older people) in a casual manner.

Rola is of Bengali, Japanese and Russian descent, as her father is from Bangladesh and her mother is Japanese with a quarter Russian heritage. She was born in Japan, and was raised primarily in Bangladesh until she was 9 years old. Her parents were divorced and she was primarily raised by her step-mother, who was Chinese. Rola's modelling career began when she was a high school student after being approached by a scout while walking down the street in Shibuya, Tokyo.

Right after the news of Jurip was reported on afternoon news programs of all TV stations on June 25, Rola appeared as usual on "Waratte Iitomo(笑っていいとも)", an afternoon live variety show of Fuji TV. In the program, she didn't make any comments on the news.

On the evening of June 25, she made a comment on the news sent to Japanese mass media by fax. She commented "I was very amazed when I heard the news today. I'm very sorry that my father caused trouble. I'm very sad. I'm really sorry."

Here is a video of Jurip and Rola.

Here is a parody video of Carly Rae Jepsen"Call Me Maybe", starring Rola.

Some people think Arie Mizusawa(水沢アリー) 's appearance on TV will grow in place of Rola. Mizusawa is becoming popular in Japan as a look-alike for Rola.
