Top Police Chief Quits After Scandal

January 06, 2000|From Times Wire Reports

Japan's top police chief resigned after allegations of drug abuse and sexual harassment stained his force's image. National Police Agency chief Yuko Sekiguchi, 60, said his resignation did not imply that he was taking responsibility for any wrongdoing. A scandal in a Tokyo suburb last year centered on allegations that senior officials had covered up drug abuse by an agent. Officers in Kanagawa prefecture were also allegedly involved in sexual harassment of colleagues.
