Japanese group to sue over emperor's enthronement funding

TOKYO – Dozens of Japanese citizens, including members of Christian groups and Buddhist monks, are planning to sue the government over its plan to use taxpayer money for ceremonies next year to mark the new emperor’s enthronement.

At least 120 people plan to launch the lawsuit in early December, arguing that funding what they deem are religious ceremonies from the national budget violates the constitutional principle separating religion and state.
