Now Kokkai tries the Elvis look:
After 3 makekoshi basho in a row, he wants to change the bad luck with a
"model change" for Kyushu.
Two personal managers of Asashoryu will go to Mongolia, on the 27th and
on the 2nd. He is still without a watch-dog at the moment.
In the Tokitsukaze lynch case the police admits an error of judgment in
at first declaring it a death by accident.
In the yaocho libel suit a hearing was held on the 25th. The full Shukan
Gendai position will be stated next time, on Nov. 29th. Rikishi will be
heard as witnesses not before next year.
Regarding Kitanoumi riji-cho allegedly arranging the Asashoryu-Hakuho
bout of the Nagoya-basho last year, the sumo kyokai position is that a
woman's witness account was published as if being the truth. Shukan
Gendai states that it was just a statement and does not count as libel.
