The campaign team for the wife of Justice Minister Katsuyuki Kawai, who won her first seat in an Upper House election in July, is suspected of having paid staff members a daily allowance that exceeded the amount permitted under the law, a weekly magazine reported online Wednesday.

The Shukan Bunshun magazine said that the election office of Anri Kawai, who ran on the Liberal Democratic Party ticket in a Hiroshima constituency, paid 13 female campaign announcers ¥30,000 ($276) per day, double the amount allowed by law.
