Japan's Olympics minister: not government's role to look into bid payments
November 26, 2020

In response to a question from a lawmaker about Reuters’ reporting on the subject, Hashimoto said it was the responsibility of the Japanese Olympic Committee and the Tokyo metropolitan government to explain the bid’s activities.

IOC chief Thomas Bach said last week no IOC rules were infringed by payments in 2013 and 2014 totaling more than $8 million from the Tokyo Olympic bid committee to an executive of the Tokyo organising committee.
