Ikumi Yoshimatsu, winner of last year's Miss International contest, has filed a criminal complaint against a top agency executive alleging obstruction of business, stalking, intimidation and extortion. She accused the executive of threatening her life after she formed her own management agency rather than use his. 

 A teary-eyed Yoshimatsu told reporters Monday that the executive had threatened sponsors and shareholders and she was barred from Tuesday's ceremony in Tokyo. 

 Eiichi Masunaga, official at the International Culture Association, the beauty contest's operator, confirmed they won't allow her to appear because they don't want media coverage of the controversy to overshadow the event.
