Composer apologizes for lying about deafness


A month after the shocking revelation by his ghostwriter, the supposedly "deaf" composer Mamoru Samuragochi apologized March 7 to reporters in Tokyo for deceiving people with his lies.

However, the 50-year-old son of Hiroshima A-bomb survivors flatly denied composer Takashi Niigaki's claim that he is not deaf, saying he is preparing to sue Niigaki for defamation and will meet soon with a lawyer.

"I apologize for causing troubles because of my lies," he said, as a sign-language interpreter sat in front of him. (Kyodo)
