The Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, is speaking in the Japanese Parliament today, stating that he and his wife are not involved in the document scandal that has rocked the Japanese government recently.
Shinzo Abe is declining any involvement in the land sale scandal that roiled Japan's parliament last week. Some government land was sold to a school operator at a steep discount on their estimated value, and documents involved in the sale had been modified by the Finance Ministry to strike the names of PM Abe and his wife, Akie Abe, who have personal connections to the purchaser. PM Abe and Finance Minister Taro Aso are being widely held responsible for the debacle, with opposition party members calling for them to step down. A poll over the weekend found that many respondents believe that Abe is personally responsible for the scandal despite his claims to the contrary.
