Japan's finance ministry says will continue investigation into official's conduct
Some comments by Japan's Ministry of Finance (MOF)
- Can't verify facts just from the official's statement alone
- Says that Fukuda denies the reports about his conduct
- And that he does not recall having exchanges with the female reporter in question
- Fukuya preparing to file defamation lawsuit against publisher of magazine
Oh, looks like they are commenting on the alleged sexual harassment case that popped up over the weekend, not the Moritomo issue.
More on that here - mainly regarding vice finance minister Junichi Fukuda.
