Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama is expected to submit a written statement to prosecutors denying involvement in the falsified political money reports by his fund management body, sources said.

His mother, meanwhile, has already submitted such a statement denying involvement, but Tokyo prosecutors have not formally accepted it, citing insufficient content, and requested a further explanation, the sources said.
