The Crybaby Politician Almost Never Took Any Business Trips
Ryutaro Nonomura, who served in the Hyogo Prefectural Assembly, quickly became an international sensation on YouTube.
According to a Nikkei Newspaper article dated September 18, “in response to the police investigation, he confessed that he almost never took any business trips”.
According to the statement for fiscal 2013, Mr. Nonomura had claimed approximately 3 million Japanees Yen (approx.USD 30,000) in expenses for 195 day-return business trips during 2013.
This is a ridiculous story in every way.
I hope to this will serve as a brake on the non-transparent ways of spending public money by politicians.
