DNA (Delhi) - - World -

Tokyo: Japan’s Fi­nance Min­istry ac­knowl­edged Mon­day that it doc­tored doc­u­ments in a widen­ing scan­dal linked to Prime Min­is­ter Shinzo Abe’s wife that has rat­tled his gov­ern­ment and caused its sup­port rat­ings to slide. Abe quickly apol­o­gised Mon­day on be­half of min­istry of­fi­cials but did not men­tion his wife or her sus­pected role in the scan­dal. “Peo­ple are look­ing crit­i­cally at the de­vel­op­ments, and I take it se­ri­ously,” he said, promis­ing to pur­sue a thor­ough in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
