NHK Chairman Ryoichi Ueda said in a regular press conference Thursday that Tsurumoto bears a grave responsibility for hurting the credibility of the public broadcaster. Ueda also said he takes the incidents “very seriously.”

If you are sincere here in your statement here I suggest that in a show of remorse you drop those insidious broadcast fees for the entire country for the next year.

How the hell is this rapist allowed to walk free and commit more rapes, even after they have him on the books for 2 already? WTF Japan?

Is this like that story about the rapist from last week who was let off because the judge decided "It's OK, he showed remorse"?!

What makes you think he is out and about? That's extremely doubtful.

He is probably still in custody as the police can hold him for 21 days before charging him with a crime. They then re-arrest him so that they can hold him for another 21 days. And so on...

As this is the third arrest since February it is safe to assume that the J-cops still have under lock and key.

Doesn't say anywhere he's incarcerated either!!

No, but the way things work here, it's extremely doubtful that he is not locked up.

I usually don't agree with much of anything the godfather says, but he's correct here:

Wow!

"Tsurumoto was indicted in February on a charge of raping a woman a year earlier in Yamagata Prefecture, northeastern Japan, and indicted again Wednesday over another rape in October 2014 in Yamanashi."

This guy was on a roll..... he's up their with O'reilly...

Serial rapists who are proven guilty without a doubt, should be chemical castrated.

So all these adventures of his have been swept under the rug by the rest of the staff?

Yeh, because NHK's credibility is what is important here...

To be fair, though, they shouldn't mention NHK every time they talk about the rapist.

DNA samples collected from the two incident sites in Yamanashi matched those left at the scene in Yamagata, investigators said.

Did they match the suspect's?

He has denied the allegation, the police said.

WTF lationz? He's been in custody for months, since his first arrest.

Magnus Roe at Apr. 07, 2017 - 11:01AM JST "So all these adventures of his have been swept under the rug by the rest of the staff?"

What are you talking about? Has there been any evidence presented that other staff knew what he was doing?

Forensic inspection is used now, any rape suspect should be incarcerated as rapists are repeaters.

This guy being the serial rapist he is makes me wonder how many he has actually committed. The police should be tracking his life from and inclusive of his high school days to now and putting ads in the local papers in and around where he lived asking any people to come forward if they know of any similar or unreported events in the past. This could possibly uncover a wealth of information.
