TOKYO -- Tokyo Medical University, which allegedly accepted the son of senior education ministry official Futoshi Sano in return for his favor in helping the school win a multimillion yen ministry grant, issued a statement on the evening of July 4 following Sano's arrest on bribery charges, saying the school was "deeply sorry for causing substantial trouble and concern."

The school acknowledged that it is under investigation by the Tokyo District Public Prosecutors Office, adding that it is "fully cooperating" with prosecutors.
