Police in Tokyo have arrested a 33-year-old elementary school teacher on suspicion of violating the child pornography law and forcible obstruction of business after he allegedly installed a spy camera inside the girl’s toilet.
Police said Katsuya Nagano teaches at a municipal elementary school in Adachi Ward, Sankei Shimbun reported. Police said he has admitted to the charge and quoted him as saying he installed the camera to “satisfy his sexual urges.”
According to police, the incident came to light after a female student discovered a miniature camera on the floor at around 12:40 p.m. on March 19. School officials contacted police who reviewed surveillance camera footage within the school’s premises and identified Nagano as the suspect.
A subsequent search of Nagano’s residence turned up video taken on a smartphone in the toilet on April 17. Nagano is also suspected of using that film to produce child pornography.© Japan Today
