Ehime Univ. professor fired for sexual harassment over 4 years.

MATSUYAMA, Japan, July 19 Kyodo

State-run Ehime University in western Japan on Friday fired a male professor in his 40s after he acknowledged that he had sexually harassed female students between 1997 and 2001, university officials said.

The officials said the professor touched the bodies of several female students during off-campus outings and parties and had sexual intercourse with them at hotels.

The case came to light in late April this year when one of the women complained to another teacher. The university set up an investigative panel and questioned both the professor and the women he allegedly harassed, and he later acknowledged his guilt.
