The two most recent rikishi to be painted “kuro”, as the investigation committee is calling it, Sokokurai and Hoshikaze, expressed their unwillingness to accept the “retirement recommendation” offered by the Kyokai, and seek legal council. Sokokurai claims that startng in the second session of questioning he was not questioned at all, buy simply told repeatedly that he was guilty. Many are saying that this will probably settle out of court, as the kyokai doesn’t want to further probe this wound, or open any old ones back up. However I’m not too sure these guys will take the settlement. We’ll just see how this plays out.
