Japan’s education minister Moriyama Masahito has denied seeking election campaign support from an organization related to the religious group formerly called the Unification Church.

The Asahi Shimbun newspaper has reported that Moriyama received a letter of recommendation from the organization for the 2021 Lower House election. It said the organization assisted his campaign.

Moriyama told a Diet session on Tuesday that he may have received the letter if the newspaper’s photo of him holding the document actually exists.

But he said he has reconfirmed with his office that it did not ask the organization in question for support in past elections.

He added that no such activity reports have been found at his office.
