Hatoyama's brother offers to give up LDP posts over funds scandal

Saturday 12th December, 03:39 AM JST


Kunio Hatoyama, an opposition Liberal Democratic Party lawmaker and younger brother of Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama, tendered his resignation Friday from all party posts over the political funds scandal involving the prominent political family.

The move apparently reflects concerns within the main opposition party that it would have trouble attacking the prime minister over the same funding scandal, in which both brothers allegedly received huge amounts of money from their mother in the form of tax-free loans, if his younger brother’s problem festers unattended.
