Japan Govt Admits to Law Violation over Party Guest Lists

Japan Govt Admits to Law Violation over Party Guest Lists

   Tokyo, Jan. 10 (Jiji Press)--The Japanese government Friday admitted to violating law over the handling of guest lists for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's annual cherry blossom-viewing parties.
   Cabinet Office staff in charge failed to obtain approval in advance from the prime minister for discarding such lists for fiscal 2013-2017, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said.
   The staff's action violates the public records management law and Cabinet Office document management rules, Suga told a press conference.
   The law requires prior approval to be obtained from the prime minister when destroying administrative documents.
   Suga said the government will make all-out efforts to prevent any recurrence of the failure.
