Man charged with revenge smut in Japan

4 years ago55 views

An unemployed man in his late 40s from Saitama was arrested on Tuesday for libel. The man, Takao Hiruta, faces charges for posting his ex's semi-nude photo on the Internet. The pair knew each other on the Internet in 2012 and begun dating.

The victim later brought up breaking up. Hiruta texted and phoned her again insistently. The cops gave him a warning shortly after the victim blew the whistle on him. However, he is alleged to post a half-naked photo of her to a social networking website last August, damaging her reputation.

The victim found the photo on the Internet and immediately reported to the cops. The photo led the police to suspect revenge porn and nabbed him for defamation of character. As revenge porn emerges as a social problem, the Liberal Democratic Party has set up a special committee to mull over measures.
