It’s just been revealed that artist Osawa Shinichi was arrested by police on December 14th on suspicion of his involvement in a coercive sexual assault.
“I need you to entertain my male client. If you don’t do that, the company will go bankrupt,” Osawa allegedly said as an order to a female subordinate, who then had horrible deeds committed unto her by the unsaid man at a metropolitan hotel.
Upon hearing this, Osawa was arrested on the 14th. “I don't know anything about that,” he told police, denying the woman’s claims, and was eventually acquitted on the 18th.
Following his arrest, Osawa’s appearance at the December 16th “ASOBINITE!!! -Fuyu no Jun-” event at the Shinkiba ageHa and the December 17th “The PLANET Opening Party Vol. 35” were promptly canceled. Since then, however, he has already returned to his usual activities and appeared as scheduled at his events Shinsaibashi AVENUE A (December 23rd) and the “OFF THE ROCKER to Taku Takahashi no BIG na Bounenkai!!!” event (December 29th) as planned. Additionally, he is scheduled to appear at the “ageHa COUNTDOWN 2012 -SUNRISE-” event on the 31st.
In order to personally prove his innocence, Osawa has agreed to cooperate with the police investigations. He has also posted the following comment about the situation to assure his fans:
“It’s a fact that I was arrested. However, I did not at all participate in this scandal, and as I had no involvement in this I will completely deny it. Naturally, right now I have been released, so I’m carrying out my musical activities as per usual. Moreover, in the police investigations I will be cooperating as much as possible. I hope that the real situation will be cleared up, and that the suspicion towards me will as well. I’ve worried fans of my music and all those involved with this news, but please believe me, as I am 100% innocent.”
