Justice system says No! to despotic HASHIMOTO government〜Winning the lawsuit on rejecting tattoo check in Osaka

The Osaka District Court on Dec. 17 ruled in favor of the plaintiff in two cases sued by YASUDA Tadasu (photo; left), the Osaka Municipal Traffic Bureau worker. One is the lawsuit asking to annul the disciplinary measures enforced on him for rejecting the tattoo check. The other lawsuit is to cancel the forced job transfer from a bus driver to a desk clerk, which arose when he rejected the request from the Traffic Bureau chief to withdraw the suit.
 The district court’s ruling dominated news headlines describing them as “the judiciary repeatedly denies the despotic style of Mayor HASHIMOTO Toru” (YOMIURI Shimbun) and “the coercion of Hashimoto style is warned” (MAINICHI Shimbun).  In accordance with the district court decisions, Mayor Hashimoto should revoke the disciplinary measures of Yasuda and six others who also rejected the tattoo check.


  大 阪地裁(中垣内健治裁判長)は12月17日、交通局職員の安田匡さん(写真左)が起こした入れ墨調査を拒否して受けた懲戒処分の取り消し裁判、交通局長に 訴訟の取り下げを求められて拒否したためにバスの運転手から事務の仕事に配置転換させられたことの取り消し裁判で、いずれも原告勝訴の判決を下しました。 判決についてマスコミは大きく取り上げました。そして、「橋下流、司法が再三否定」(読売)「橋下流、強権にクギ」(毎日)と報じました。橋下市長は大阪 地裁判決に従い、安田さんへの処分を始め、入れ墨調査を拒否した6人の処分を取り消すべきです。
