SAGAMIHARA – On October 24, it was learned through interviews with related parties, that Sagamihara City, that documented inappropriate behavior by a staff member toward a user at a municipal facility for the disabled operated by the Sagamihara City Social Welfare Foundation, an affiliated organization of the city, had been rewritten to use expressions that were non-problematic.
A supervisor had instructed another employee to rewrite the document.
Officials reported to the city that they were trying to cover up suspicion of abuse by falsifying records, but the city decided that there was no problem after hearing from the agency. The business group is fully funded by the city, and the chairman of the board is a former executive of the city.
