The Nagasaki municipal government was ordered by a court Monday to pay around ¥19.75 million in compensation to a female journalist who was sexually assaulted by a male senior official in 2007 and suffered additional harm as a result of falsehoods spread by another official.

The plaintiff’s side had demanded that the city pay around ¥74 million in the suit filed at the Nagasaki District Court, arguing the now-deceased official misused his position and exercised authority to assault the reporter, and the city also failed to prevent additional harm.
