Chancellor's secret sex room revealed in court
Tsuneo Nakajima, 60, the former chancellor of Tokyo University and Graduate School of Social Welfare, was arrested for molesting two female staff in his office in January. He was actually arrested 11 years ago over a similar allegation. At that time, he reached an out-of-court settlement with the victim. But in the latest case, he has been brought to trial where his perverted tendencies are being revealed in court.
On March 18, the opening day of the trial at the Tokyo district court, prosecutors accused Nakajima of forcibly kissing the victims and revealed the existence of a secret room inside the chancellor’s office.
One police source says he was amazed to find such “facilities.” He said that, according to university staff, “everybody was forbidden to enter the room. It was absolutely off limits. It is actually a very simple room with a bed, couch and shower. But various types of sex toys, condoms as well as energy drinks were there, so it looked like a love hotel room.”
According to the prosecutor, in February 2007, Nakajima ordered one victim to come to his office, telling her he needed to discuss business matters. Drinking alcohol, he told her in English, “You must be lonely” and kissed her and tried to lift up her skirt. In May of 2005, he took the other victim, who is married, to the secret room, saying, “I’ll take care of you. It’s convenient for us that we both are already married.” When the two victims quit the college, Nakajima offered them an additional one million yen not to file a complaint with police.
One college insider says, “Nakajima has been a dictator since he founded the college. He would often direct his anger at male staff and shame female staff.” (Translated by Taro Fujimoto)
