The August 4 issue of the Asahi Shimbun reports that JPO
Commissioner Ogawa has been named in a growing METI slush fund
scandal relating to contracts for external studies and reports.
The article reports that Ogawa received 715,000 yen from the
slush fund in November 1996. Ogawa checked into a local hospital
immediately after the slush fund scandal broke.
