Councillor Kazusato Kawai denies conspiracy with former Minister Katsuyuki Tsuji ‘without confirming husband’s actions’ November 20 at 12:55 p.m.
Mr. Kawai, who is accused of violating the Public Offices Election Act, denied the prosecution’s claim that he conspired to acquire him, claiming that he had not confirmed the actions of his husband, former Minister Katsuyuki, during last year’s Upper House election.
Councillor Kori Kawai, 47, along with her husband, former Justice Minister Katsuyuki, 57, has pleaded not guilty after being accused of violating the Public Offices Election Act over last year’s Upper House election.
On the 20th, a third question was asked, and prosecutors repeatedly asked about LINE’s group interactions, which were also attended by staff members of the camp, in an effort to prove that they had conspired with the former minister.
As for the former minister’s instructions on LINE, Mr. Sori said, “I don’t remember,” and he said he did not know the schedule of the former minister, and he did not confirm it at the time. I had my people and drivers print out a weekly schedule with my own schedule, and I insisted that I didn’t know what to do.
On top of that, he said, “I didn’t want to put complicated information anyway. I wanted to focus on what I had to do as a candidate.”
