Ginowan City Assembly member arrested

Date Posted: 1998-10-30

Hiromitsu Taira, 58, Ginowan City Assemblyman, was arrested on suspicion of using a proxy vote in the assembly election. According to a police investigation, Taira conspired with his 35-year-old brother to get extra ballot tickets for the assembly election. They then got two members of their support group to vote in the election illegally. The investigation also revealed that they obtained a ballot ticket of a friendís brother, but failed to vote using that ticket because the brother had already used his vote in an absentee ballot.

Taira denies that he has done anything wrong. The police investigation into the matter continues. Meanwhile, the Ginowan City Assembly has not made any decision on the matter pending results of further police investigation.
