The Guangzhou Intermediate People's Procuratorate confirmed on Wednesday that it is filing charges against a Japanese legislator for allegedly smuggling drugs.

A court date has yet to be determined for Takuma Sakuragi, 70, a member of the Inazawa municipal assembly in Aichi Prefecture, said a public prosecutor with the Guangzhou Intermediate People's Procuratorate.

The prosecutor did not reveal details about Sakuragi's case because judicial procedures are under way. The public hearing will likely be held at the Guangzhou Intermediate People's Court, according to local media reports.
