 日本海テレビジョン放送(鳥取市)は28日、鳥取市内で記者会見を開き、経営戦略局長(53)がチャリティー番組「24時間テレビ」(日本テレビ系)への寄付金など計約1118万円を着服したと発表した。同社は27日付で局長を懲戒解雇処分にした。この日の会見で田口晃也会長は引責辞任、西嶌一泰社長は報酬3カ月分を全額返上すると表明した。

 同社によると、元局長は2014年以降、24時間テレビに寄せられた寄付金のうち、本社内の金庫で保管していた一部を持ち出し、計約264万円を自身の口座へ入金。さらに14~21年、経理処理を偽装するなどし、会社の資金や売上金など計約853万円を着服したという。金庫の鍵は、元局長を含めた一部の担当者で管理していた。

 今月9日、同社が税務調査を受けることを知った元局長は発覚を恐れ、同社に着服を申告。これまでに約448万円を弁済しているという。同社は着服された寄付金全額を24時間テレビチャリティー委員会に届けるという。

 同社の調査に対し、元局長は「2014年当時、親族のためにまとまった金を用立てる必要があった。着服しても発覚しにくいお金があり、思いついた」と話しているという。同社は飲食やパチンコなどの遊興費にも使ったとみている。
