Hidehiko Nishiyama, an official of the Economy, Trade, and Industry Ministry, which oversees the nuclear agency, held daily media briefings after the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in March.

The former spokesperson for Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency has been reprimanded for indecent behavior in his workplace.

The ministry suspended Nishiyama from his duties for one month. It says Nishiyama repeatedly engaged in improper behavior, such as touching a female employee, between late March and June.

The ministry replaced Nishiyama as the nuclear agency’s spokesman in June after a scandal involving his private life surfaced in a weekly magazine.
