Kagoike requests school plan probe

Jiji Press OSAKA (Jiji Press) — Yasunori Kagoike, the former chief of the scandal-tainted school operator Moritomo Gakuen, on Monday requested the Osaka Prefectural Assembly set up a powerful special investigation committee over a scrapped plan to open an elementary school.

“I want to get Osaka Gov. Ichiro Matsui and other related officials summoned so that full light is shed on the truth,” Kagoike said in his testimony at a plenary assembly session as an unsworn witness, calling for the establishment of the committee under Article 100 of the local autonomy law.

He refused to be the only one blamed over the school plan. Meanwhile, he apologized for “drawing suspicion” in connection with the procedures to establish the school in Osaka Prefecture.Speech
