Tokyo Gov. Naoki Inose revealed a document Tuesday purportedly showing he borrowed ¥50 million from Lower House member Takeshi Tokuda last November, defending his claim that the money, from the scandal-tainted Tokushukai hospital group founded by Tokuda’s father, was a personal loan and stressing he does not intend to resign.

At a Tuesday morning news conference at the Metropolitan Government Building, the governor showed an IOU of ¥50 million from Takeshi Tokuda, dated Nov. 20, 2012, with Inose’s signature and address.
