Hidetoshi Kiyotake held a press conference today to announce that he will be seeking an additional 10M yen in damages against the Yomiuri Giants and team chairman Tsuneo Watanabe because of recent slanderous statements they made against him, specifically the ones that named him as the most likely suspect in leaking Tatsunori Hara's past affair to the media.

Kiyotake claims that while he did know of Hara's affair and of the financial transaction Hara made to two individuals to keep them quiet, he was never given detailed information of what exactly went on.
