A 50 year old judge has been rounded on by others for posting photos of himself on social media wearing just his pants.

Kiichi Okaguchi who presides over civil cases in the high court, has slung up the semi-naked pictures on his Twitter account. One accompanying message to his 21,000 Twitter followers said he would "keep posting images of my naked body and me wearing just white briefs".

However, the director of the High Court, Saburo Tokura, is not a fan and said that the pictures "lower the dignity of judges". The secretary general of the court echoed the comments saying that "it is regrettable that an active judge has carried out an act that hurts public trust".

Okaguchi has apologised for "causing enormous nuisance to the people". Although he is not sorry enough to remove the pictures from his Twitter page, along with posts of other men in various states of undress. Here's a brief selection:

The judge is not the first in the legal profession to get carried away with social media as demonstrated by this lawyer, and also this chap.
