Today 07:10 am JST

what the article fails to mention is that he was suspended with pay so now he has a whole year to go out and spend this check on encounters with underage girls

the age of consent in japan is 20 years old. in brazil it's 12 years old for girls. perhaps he should apply for brazilian citizenship.
