All national dailies wrote that Prime Minister Abe mentioned yesterday in his remarks to a Lower House plenary session the GOJ is planning to include rules in its basic policy on integrated resorts featuring casinos to restrict senior officials’ contact with casino operators. The papers speculated the GOJ is mulling the idea in response to the arrest of LDP Lower House member Akimoto on suspicion of receiving bribes from a Chinese gambling operator. Nikkei conjectured that the GOJ is considering imposing new rules on cabinet ministers, vice ministers, parliamentary secretaries, and other senior officials in the central government and local governments and that the new restrictions will also apply to their contacts with foreign operators.
