NHK Molestor Trial Extended

The trial on molestation charges of an NHK director responsible for the popular "Eigo de Shaberanaito" (Can You Speak English?) education-variety show has been extended. Prosecutors are seeking a two-year prison sentence for the 39-year old director, who is accused of molesting a high school girl on a Tokaido Line train in April. Sentencing was to have been carried out at the Yokohama District Court this week, but has been postponed to July 12. The defendant received a disciplinary dismissal from NHK on Tuesday.
