Woman not prosecuted for allegedly stalking Kanjani Eight supervisor – TokyoReporter



TOKYO (TR) – Prosecutors have introduced the non-prosecution of a 28-year-old girl over the alleged stalking of the supervisor for a member of idol group Kanjani Eight, reviews TBS News (Mar. 29).

On February 3, Aika Shibata, an organization worker, allegedly approached the 26-year-old supervisor of You Yokoyama inside an underground parking storage for broadcaster TV Tokyo in Minato Ward.

Upon her arrest on suspicion of violating the Stalker Control Law earlier this month, Shibata partially denied the allegations. “I went to TV Tokyo, but it was Mr. [Shingo] Murakami of Kanjani Eight whom I wanted to see,” the suspect stated.

On Monday, prosecutors with the Tokyo District Public Prosecutor’s Office introduced the non-prosecution of Shibata. No cause for the non-prosecution was given.

Last October, Shibata additionally approached the identical supervisor at a parking zone close to his residence in Adachi Ward. Two months later, the Ayase Police Station ordered her to keep away from him.

Kanjani Eight is below the umbrella of company Johnny & Associates. The arrest of Shibata was her second for pursing an individual hooked up to the company.

On August 23, 2019, police arrested Shibata for stalking Yuto Nakajima of Hey! Say! JUMP.
