Cross-party Dietwomen protest against top official's sexual harassment

Administrative Vice-Minister of Finance Fukuda Jun'ichi reportedly made sexual remarks to a female reporter, such as "Can I touch your breasts?" "Can I tie your hands?" and "Let's have an affair."

An audio source of alleged exchange of words with this woman has been released and sexual-harassment "testimonies" of several female journalists have also been reported.

Eleven female members of the Diet in different political parties on April 13 made a representation to the Ministry of Finance to remove Fukuda if the media reports are found to be true.
