Three prison guards working at Fukushima prison have been punished for bullying a junior coworker last June. Two men aged 33 and 21 were suspended from duty for one month and a third, aged 26, had his pay reduced by 10% for a period of two months, prison officials said Tuesday.
According to the officials, last June 19 at around 1:30 a.m. in the staff showers, the suspended men poured liquid hand soap over the head and face of the 20-year-old complainant, causing an outbreak of dermatitis. They then shaved part of his body with a razor. The guard who was given a pay cut then shaved another part of the victim's body at 9 p.m. the same day.
According to prison authorities, the three men said they were just "playing pranks" on their junior colleague.© Compiled from news reports
