Suspicion about Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s alleged favoritism toward school operator Kake Gakuen deepened further on Friday after a potentially compromising document was unearthed at the agriculture ministry.

The discovery gives further credibility to a similar document that was first reported by the daily Asahi Shimbun on Tuesday. Ehime Gov. Tokihiro Nakamura has claimed that the document obtained by Asahi was drafted by a prefectural official on April 2015 but the prefecture doesn’t have a copy because it was written simply as a memo and was later discarded.
