TOKYO: Japan’s national broadcaster, NHK, is under fire for a report on the official Olympic Games film by director Naomi Kawase, in which the subtitles show a man who said he was paid by anti-Olympic movements to attend protests.

The director of NHK Osaka apologized after receiving protest comments from supporters of anti-Olympic movements who said there was no evidence that the man behind the statement had actually participated in anti-Olympic protests.

The director of NHK Osaka explained that in the future the checks will be more exacting when reviewing the production of reports and he apologized to the director Naomi Kawase.

Some anti-Olympic activists have demanded the removal of the documentary. Some activists are worried that the image conveyed is intended to undermine the genuine protests of activists who demanded the cancellation of the Games, especially due to the pandemic.

The official Olympic Games film is set to hit theaters in June 2022.
