Bach returns to Tokyo after creating controversy

Tokyo, August 18 (IANS) The President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Thomas Bach, returns to Tokyo to attend the opening ceremony of the Paralympic Games after spending more than a month during the Olympic Games.

Japan’s Kyodo news agency has quoted sources as saying that Bach could arrive on August 23 (Monday), which is the day before the opening ceremony at the National Stadium.

Bach had caused controversy during his visit during the Olympic Games after he went to an exclusive shopping area in Tokyo, even though an emergency was imposed in Tokyo.

The 67-year-old was seen strolling around the Ginza district with his bodyguards despite public order from the government to avoid non-essential excursions due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
