First of the Sekitori Questioned, Restrictions on Rikishi

It was reported by sponichi annex that 33 of the sekitori, including Hakuho, Asasekiryu, Wakanosato, and Toyohibiki, amongst others,  reported for their questioning interviews in regards to the yaocho.  Not surprisingly, all 33 members denied ever fixing bouts.  The special committee has said they hope to be finished sekitori interviews by the 12th.

Due to the scandal rikishi and oyakata have had Bob Jones University-like restrictions slapped down upon them.  Stay tuned until I finish translating them, should be up sometime today.
