Police on Tuesday arrested a manager at a high school in Kawasaki's Asao Ward on charges of violating the child prostitution and pornography laws after he allegedly paid a 17-year-old student for sexual services.
Police said 52-year-old Minoru Komura was arrested on suspicion of paying 60,000 yen to a girl he had met through a prostitution club and receiving sexual services from her at his apartment in Yokohama on June 6. He reportedly met the girl several times, paying her 60,000-100,000 yen each time.
The Board of Education released a statement, saying, "This is a deplorable act for someone who works in school administration. We will deal with the incident with the utmost severity."© Wire reports
