The mayor of Nantan, Kyoto Prefecture, and his son were arrested Sunday on suspicion of wining and dining voters in exchange for their votes in the mayoral election in February, police said.

But police said that Keiichi Nakagawa, 63, and his son Yoshinari, 34, have denied the allegation, saying they did not entertain anyone as part of the election campaign and that the participants at the meeting in question paid for their own expenses.
