In this, Mr. Junya Ogawa of the constitutional democratic party and other factions ” forced to extend the work to the cabinet decision that is suspected of being illegal and unconstitutional, but it is unheard of that the top prosecutor to resign due to the scandal of ignoring gambling, entertainment allegations, and even self-imposed requests. How do you take responsibility for the appointment?”

In response, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said, “Mr. Kurokawa has undergone a proper process based on the needs of the Prosecutor’s Office to carry out its duties, and there was no problem with the extension of his duties. The Ministry of Justice and the Public Prosecutor’s Office finally recognized the personnel case as a cabinet, and i am responsible for it and i would like to take the criticism seriously.”

On top of that, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said, “It is not a de-legal thing, nor is it an extension of my work to make him the attorney general. With the cabinet decision to approve his resignation, there is no need to withdraw the cabinet decision to extend his work.”

Regarding the disposition of Mr. Kurokawa’s caution, he said, “I am aware that the Attorney General has disposed of the matter appropriately, taking into account various circumstances, such as the content of the case.”

Mr. Toru Miyamoto of the Communist Party said, “I strongly comfort Ed. Mori, who submitted the request, but I do not think that we can restore trust under Minister Mori.”

It is my mission to fulfill this responsibility.”

Chief Cabinet Secretary Kan :”Change in interpretation of the law that allowed the retirement age to be extended will be maintained”

At an afternoon press conference, Kan said that whether changes to the interpretation of the law, which allowed The Tokyo High Prosecutor’s Office to extend the retirement age of Attorney General Kurokawa, were maintained, “I think that the change in the interpretation of the law was appropriately done by the Ministry of Justice, which oversees the Public Prosecutor’s Office law, and it remains of course.”

Regarding a bill to gradually raise the retirement age of national civil servants, including prosecutors, he said, “We have submitted it to the Diet to address administrative issues by utilizing the wealth of knowledge and experience of senior officials. Currently, some people say that the situation is different due to the new coronavirus, but in any case, the date for deliberation of the bill will be decided by the Diet.”
