A disciplinary committee will look at whether or not or not Senator Gersey, who has stayed abroad and has been absent from the Diet, shall be punished.
Garthy has stated that he’ll return to Japan in March, however Tachibana, the chief of the NHK Party, to which he belongs, stated, “I can’t decide whether to come back in March.”
The NHK Party member of the House of Councilors Garthy has by no means attended the Diet since he was first elected in final yr’s election, saying he’s staying within the UAE = United Arab Emirates.
The Speaker of the House of Councilors Otsuji issued a written “invitation” based mostly on the Diet Law to Rep. Garthy, requesting his attendance. I’ve referred it to the committee.
According to the House of Councillors, that is the primary time that an “invitation” has been issued and the case has been referred to the Disciplinary Committee.
