Corruption: Japanese minister says sorry for funds scandal

Japanese Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Minister Seiichi Ota has apologized for a political funds record scandal which was exposed earlier this week.

Ota revealed the detailed expenditures for 2005 and 2006 and said he can provide receipts for about 90 percent of office and miscellaneous expenses in question, Kyodo News reported.

Ota said he was confident that the money has been appropriately used for right purposes and reiterated he will not step down.

"I am sorry for confusing the public and my supporters," he was quoted as saying.
