Japan Swimming Federation head Daichi Suzuki said Thursday the federation’s executive committee will decide next Tuesday how to punish Naoya Tomita and senior swimming officials after Tomita was caught red-handed stealing a camera belonging to a South Korean media organization at the Asian Games in Incheon.

Suzuki, speaking after arriving back in Japan from South Korea, met with Tomita at the athletes’ village after the incident and said the swimmer, who will not be called in for a fresh round of questioning, was “not in the right frame of mind.”
