  • Prosecutors drop case against actor Yamamoto, antinuclear protesters

    SAGA (Kyodo) -- Prosecutors dropped a case Wednesday against actor Taro Yamamoto and other protestors opposed to the restarting of local nuclear reactors who were accused of trespassing and interfering with the duties of the Saga prefectural office in July, citing insufficient evidence.

    After questioning the 37-year-old actor on Dec. 19 on a voluntary basis following criminal complaints filed by citizens, the Saga District Public Prosecutors Office said it has found "insufficient evidence to acknowledge their criminal intent and charge them."
