「いいかげんにしろ」日大元幹部、アメフト部の薬物事件めぐるゴタゴタ 部員3人目の逮捕者 若手幹部へ世代交代も重要

沢田副学長(右)が林理事長(左)を訴える事態となった日大

アメリカンフットボール部の薬物事件をめぐり、日本大学が混迷を深めている。麻薬特例法違反の疑いで新たに3年生部員の男が逮捕された。経営陣では酒井健夫学長が年度末に、沢田康広副学長が年内に辞任の方向となった一方で、沢田副学長が林真理子理事長をパワハラで提訴するなど内紛も表面化した。収まる気配のない騒動に、日大元幹部も憤りを隠さない。

警視庁薬物銃器対策課は27日、知人の密売人から大麻などの違法薬物を譲り受けたとして、麻薬特例法違反の疑いで3年生部員の男(21)を逮捕した。アメフト部の逮捕者は3人目となった。

人事も混乱が続く。22日の理事会で、酒井学長は本年度末での辞任、沢田副学長が即時の辞任、林理事長は減給50%とする処分の方針が固まっていた。ただ、沢田副学長は業務引き継ぎなどに時間を要するとして年内に辞任する意向を周囲に伝えたという。

さらに沢田副学長は27日、事件後に合理的な理由なく辞任を強要されるなどのパワハラを受けたとして、林理事長に1000万円の損害賠償を求めて東京地裁に提訴した。

こうしたゴタゴタについて、日大元幹部は「いいかげんにしろといいたい。沢田氏は第三者委員会で責任を追及され、辞めるにあたっても理事長を訴えた。学校や学生、父母、OBのこと何も考えていない」と語気を強める。

2021年に日大は、脱税事件などを起こした元理事長体制と「永久に決別」すると宣言した。前出の元幹部は当時、「日大の民主化や再生の一歩になる」と期待を込めていた。だが「われわれからも改革案を日大側などに提出していたが受け入れられなかった。文科省の意見を聞き過ぎたことが今の問題につながっているかもしれない」と落胆する。

林理事長は留任する見通しだが、残された課題を解決できるのか。前出の元幹部は「日大は不祥事が起きると『おじいさん』ばかりが表に出るため、旧態依然とした印象を与えてしまう。幹部には真っ当な若手もいる。改革というならば、若手がもっと表に出て、林理事長をサポートしていくべきではないか」と述べ、世代交代の重要性も力説した。
