Twitter leads to arrest of Kyushu Electric employee for hiring underage hooker
The suspect paid a 14-year-old junior-high school girl 50,000 yen for sex
TOKYO (TR) – Fukuoka prefectural police utilized a tip from a user of social-networking site Twitter to arrest an employee from Kyushu Electric Power for picking up an underage prostitute, reports the Yomiuri Shimbun (Aug. 7).

On Monday, officers from the Chuo Police Station took Hidenori Nagai, 34, into custody after he allegedly paid a 14-year-old junior-high school girl 50,000 yen on December 23 of last year for sexual services — a violation of the Anti-Prostitution Law.

Nagai and the girl became acquainted on an Internet bulletin board. The suspect has reportedly admitted to the allegations.

The matter came to light after Nagai described the rendezvous, which took place at an Osaka love hotel, on Twitter. Readers alerted Kyushu Electric which then contacted police authorities.

“It is an unfortunate occurrence,” said a representative of Kyushu Electric to Nippon News Network (Aug. 6). “Even in their private time, our employees are expected to adhere to high moral standards.”
