Toru Hashimoto at the press club Tokyo May 27th 2013
Osaka Mayor Toru Hashimoto, after his comments on "comfort women" May 13 and his press conference May 27 to criticise media he accused of misinterpreting his words, is expected now to face a censure motion filed by Osaka local politicians later today May 30th.
