A Japanese businessman who molested four flight attendants was fined $4,000 on Wednesday on two charges.

Sugiki Kunihiko, 67, is the second man in a week to be convicted of outraging the modesty of Singapore Airlines (SIA) stewardesses.

Last week, school teacher Ahmad Abdulla Saleh Alyasi, 41, from the United Arab Emirates, was fined $10,000 for touching the buttocks of two SIA flight stewardesses on board a Dubai- Singapore flight.

On Wednesday, Kunihiko admitted touching the buttocks of two stewardesses on a Tokyo-Singapore flight on Aug 6. Two other charges were taken into consideration.
