Education minister Masahito Moriyama, who also has religious affairs within his ministerial portfolio, admitted Wednesday to signing a document pledging support for issues championed by the Unification Church ahead of the October 2021 general election.

At a parliamentary session, Moriyama said, “I think I may have signed the document without sufficiently checking its contents, but I don’t remember very well,” after a major newspaper reported his ties with the controversial religious group.

The daily Asahi Shimbun said the document from a group affiliated with the Unification Church asked for support for political policies the group has promoted, and signing it is believed to have been a condition of receiving a letter of endorsement from the church for the election.
