Shigeharu Hisamatsu, a former chief executive of ADK Holdings, and his former assistant Toshiaki Tada received the sentences from the Tokyo District Court on Thursday.
Hisamatsu, 64, an advertising firm executive, received an 18-month sentence, suspended for three years, while Tada received a one-year sentence, also suspended for three years, as reported by FirstPost.
Neither Hisamatsu nor Tada contested allegations during an earlier hearing that they had bribed a member of the Tokyo 2020 Executive Council.
Hisamatsu and Tada were arrested along with former ADK Holdings chairman Shinichi Ueno in October 2022.
Ueno admitted in a court hearing in February that he paid more than $100,000 in bribes to Executive Council member Haruyuki Takahashi.
Takahashi has received four charges of accepting bribes, which he denies.
Last month, Hironori Aoki, the former chairman of clothing supplier Aoki Holdings, was sentenced to two and a half years in prison, suspended for four years, for paying Takahashi 28 million yen ($209,000). in exchange for a contract for the Games.
His brother, Takahisa Aoki, a former vice president of the company, and former chief executive Katsuhisa Ueda were sentenced to 12 and 18 months in prison, respectively, sentences that were suspended for three years.
The ongoing bribery scandal has prompted Sapporo to put its bid to host the 2030 Winter Olympics on hold.
