NARA (TR) – Nara Prefectural Police have announced an intention to file charges against an officer in his 20s who is accused of taking illicit photographs while receiving a sex service, reports the Sankei Shimbun (Dec. 3).

At the end of November, the officer, a sergeant in the livelihood protection division, met a female employee from a fuzoku parlor at a hotel within the prefecture.

During the session, the employee noticed an operating camera from within the sergeant’s bag pointed in the direction of the couple. Since the agreed upon service did not include tosatsu, or the taking of peeping photos, the woman lodged a complaint with police.

A subsequent search of the camera revealed illicit images of other women.

The sergeant faces charges of causing a public nuisance. Nara police are expected to discipline the officer but he has made indications that he will request retirement from duty.
