Government / Politics
Japanese term or phrase: ワイロ
This is something to do with money required when one is arrested, possibly...sorry to be so vague. It has to do with money or costs of some sort, though specifically for what, I'm not sure. Any and all ideas would be appreciated. (btw, the place "one" is being arrested is China)

Thank you so much! I guess I'll have to be a little less katakana-happy, and check out the kanji as well!
