Suga says he had no knowledge of alleged scandal involving his son

All national papers reported that Prime Minister Suga told the press last night that he was not aware of a magazine’s allegation that his eldest son entertained several senior government officials on behalf of his company multiple times. The weekly Shukan Bunshun claimed in its latest issue that Suga’s son, who works at Tohokushinsha Film Corp., entertained four high-ranking Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications officials at expensive restaurants in Tokyo several times last year. The papers noted that the central government employee ethics law prohibits civil servants from being entertained by stakeholders. The prime minister underscored that he does not intend to ask his son about the allegation, adding that the matter will be handled by the ministry.
