The Denver Post - - BUSINESS -

The pres­i­dent of top Ja­panese ad­ver­tis­ing com­pany Dentsu Inc. said Wed­nes­day he will re­sign to take re­spon­si­bil­ity for the sui­cide of a worker who had clocked mas­sive over­time in her first months on the job.

Pres­i­dent Tadashi Ishii said at a Tokyo news con­fer­ence he will ten­der his res­ig­na­tion at a board meet­ing in Jan­uary although he will stay through March as a courtesy to share­hold­ers.

Ear­lier Wed­nes­day, govern­ment au­thor­i­ties filed pa­pers de­mand­ing pros­e­cu­to­rial charges against the uniden­ti­fied Dentsu em­ployee sus­pected of driv­ing Mat­suri Taka­hashi to sui­cide from over­work.
