HIROSHIMA (TR) – Hiroshima Prefectural Police have re-arrested a school vice principal already in custody on charges of committing obscene acts with a female student, reports the Sankei Shimbun (June 1).

According to the Kaita Police Station, Masanori Komasu, 51, a vice principal at Inokuchi High School, allegedly used a tablet computer to film the upper half of the body of the girl, 16, as she slept in the nude at a hotel in Kure City on February 21.

Komasu, who has been charged with violating child pornography and prostitution laws, admits to the allegations.

On May 10, police first arrested Komasu for a separate incident involving the same girl. In that case, the vice principal was charged with violating the Child Welfare Act by committing illicit acts. He denied those allegations, saying he did not commit such acts.

The latter incident came to light after the girl’s mother consulted with police.
