The chairman of cosmetics firm DHC Corp. said Your Party leader Yoshimi Watanabe borrowed ¥800 million from him in the form of two loans but that none of his political funds reports list the funds.

DHC Chairman Yoshiaki Yoshida said Wednesday that the money he lent the president of the minor opposition party before the 2010 House of Councilors election and before the 2012 House of Representatives election "couldn't be used in any other way than as election campaign funds."

Yoshida also said that over ¥500 million of the cash hasn't been repaid.
