<<1. In parallel to the police investigation currently underway, the Kyokai should hold its own inquiry>>
was interviewed by Kitanoumi, Musashigawa, Isenoumi and the Kyokai's
lawyers and maintained that "everything happened in the course of
keiko". "I think they went too far. A serious sentence is necessary",
countered Kitanoumi afterwards to the press. People close say a special
rijikai is imminent due to the seriousness of the matter. "I admit to
hitting him with a beer bottle the night before his death. The day of
his death, he had a 30 minute butsugari session where he was hit with a
metal bat and a branch on his buttocks, but I told the deshi to stop",
Tokitsukaze exp- lamed. As for the accusations of not assisting him
quickly enough, he said that he was watching him closely and the minute
things took a turn for the worse, he called for an ambulance and that
he was wiping his body with a cold towel..
No resignation papers were
submitted. "It's not for me to recommend to him what to do. He should
take responsibility and decide", said Kitanoumi.
The Kyokai is advised to add outside experts to a committee the Kyokai
created yesterday to reconsider the ways rikishi are guided, trained
originally planned to be a member, but he will not be. The three main
members are Isenoumi, Tomozuna and newly appointed Hasegawa + 5 other
Oyakata -one from each Ichimon, the likes of Nakamura and Matsugane.
The other external people will be nominated starting tomorrow.
