A former president of the Hiroshima Sogo department store was arrested on Tuesday for ordering his company to purchase 320m yen of out-of-fashion women's clothing over a four year period. Prosecuters alleged that Yoshimi Waseda, - made to resign September 2000 to take responsibility for the company's business failures - committed breach of trust when he forced the store to purchase the products, even though he was aware of the difficulties involved in selling them.
