Finance Ministry to admit document changes in Diet – News – NHK WORLD

Japan’s Finance Ministry will admit to the Diet on Monday that alterations were made to documents on a controversial state land deal.

The land in Osaka Prefecture was sold to private school operator Moritomo Gakuen in 2016 for only a fraction of its market value.

The transaction sparked allegations of favoritism in part because the wife of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was acquainted with the school operator.
