Woman wins sexual harassment case against police officer

Date Posted: 2007-12-30

The Court of Appeals has upheld a Naha District Court ruling that a female witness to an incident was sexually harassed by a police lieutenant as he interviewed her, and has awarded the Osaka woman ¥300,000.
The appeals court rejected a Prefecture Police argument that the lieutenant was merely “trying to make her mind relax” when he took her to a coffee shop and “asked her to hold his hands.” The woman charged the police interrogator was harassing her, and said the police department “didn’t watch him well.”
When the lieutenant asked her the color of her panties, she said he crossed the line. She had been telling him “I’m innocent”, which in Japanese also means the same thing as white. The officer contended he wanted to ask more about her and the investigation, which is why he asked the question, to take the color as a comparison.
The upper court found the explanation unreasonable, and rejected the Prefecture arguments, finding the case in favor of the visiting woman.
