参院、山本太郎氏の処分を確認 8日に具体案 by  47news
参院議院運営委員会は7日の理事会で、園遊会で天皇陛下に手紙を手渡した無所属の山本太郎参院議員への対応を協議し「非常識な行為」として処分する方針を確認した。具体的な処分案は8日午前に再協議する。
自民党は、山崎正昭議長が厳重注意した上で皇室行事への出席自粛を求めるとの処分案を各党に示す方針を固めている。この日の理事会で提示する方向だったが、党内に「軽すぎる」との異論もあり、調整のため提案を見送った。
理事会では、自民党が「山本氏は自ら出処進退を明らかにすべきだ。議員辞職を促したい」と強調した。

Taro Yamamoto bowed down deeply in a 90-degrees angle, expressing his utmost respect to His Imperial Majesty. This bow, called “hai” in Japanese is seldom seen in public places and only applicable in the Shinto Shrines in the presence of the Gods or in divine ceremonies.”

“Despite Sen. Yamamoto’s sincere attitude towards his Majesty, the Upper House is scheduled to rule on their decision on Nov 8 to penalize Sen. Yamamoto by forcing him to refrain from attending Imperial Household events. This was requested by the LDP and opposition majority in an extraordinary fashion disregarding the established rules and norms in the National Diet.”
“According to Kyodo, the LDP retracted their proposal to penalize Sen. Yamamoto by banning him from attending further Imperial Household events due to some opposition within the LDP telling the party officials that the penalty is TOO WEAK. The LDP is to re-propose a strengthened version of their proposal by morning of 11/8. What more can they propose except expulsion? “
