Finance ministry official denies sexual harassment

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at an upper house parliamentary session in Tokyo Thomson Reuters TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has decided that a top finance ministry bureaucrat accused of sexually harassing several female reporters must be fired, the daily Sankei newspaper reported on Monday.

Fukuda's denial follows the weekly Shukan Shincho magazine reporting in its Thursday edition that he made remarks to female reporters while drinking that were overtly sexual in nature.

Fukuda said in the hearing that he made no such remarks, and that the report is not true.

The ministry on Monday announced the results of its questioning of Fukuda and how the ministry plans to deal with the matter.

And Mourinho , speaking after the game, insisted he was making no excuses and noted that Man City were deserved champions. United had just achieved what many deemed impossible, winning the Premier League, FA Cup and European Cup treble.

The vice minister indicated that he had no intention of resigning, saying he will steadily continue his duties.

The ministry has also asked the female reporters to come forward if they have had any untoward dealings with Fukuda, such as those alleged by the weekly magazine.

The Finance Ministry said it will commission a lawyer to continue its investigation into the matter so as to secure objectivity.
