Mainichi and Nikkei reported that former Okinawa Affairs Minister Tsuruho on Tuesday categorically denied an allegation made by a Japanese Communist Party organ that a Kagoshima-based quarry company offered a bribe of 10 million yen to the president of his support organization in the hope that the cabinet minister would help it obtain a contract for the FRF construction project off Camp Schwab. The company’s president allegedly met with the LDP politician seven times when he was serving as Okinawa affairs minister to ask for his support. Tsuruho told the press yesterday that the allegation is false.
