Japan's PM says sorry for fund-raising scandal

Prosecutors charged former aides Keiji Katsuba, 59, and Daisuke Haga, 55, with violating laws on political funds, a prosecutors’ statement said. They allegedly falsified reports involving nearly US $4.4 million in contributions.

The two former aides are accused of listing dead people as donors to hide where political money came from, as well as underreporting some donations, according to prosecutors. They said the prime minister will not face any charges.
