Suicide follows porn charge

An inquest into the suicide of Japanese businessman, Kenichi Miyazaki, 50, was told how he hanged himself after the discovery of 1,700 pornographic pictures on his PC, it was reported today.

Miyazaki was arrested on suspicion of distributing pornographic material after pornographic images were found on his hard disk.

Miyazaki's arrest and subsequent death occurred shortly after Gary Glitter was ordered to stand trial on similar charges. Glitter, charged under his real name, Paul Gadd, has been charged with making 50 indecent photos of children with 50 additional counts of possessing indecent photographs of children. Glitter was reported to police after he too took his computer to PC World for repair.

Miyazaki was arrested on suspicion of distributing pornographic material on the Internet and was granted bail on the condition that he did not live at home as social service officials were concerned for the welfare of his two teenage children.
