Amari had brokered Japan's involvemen
The South Korean doctor who administered an injection that caused swim star Park Tae-hwan to fail a drugs test has become the scapegoat in the affair Lions Womens Jersey , her lawyer argued in court on Tuesday.

The doctor, identified only by her -surname Kim, is standing trial on -charges of professional negligence, violating the medical code and causing bodily harm.

She pleaded not guilty to all three charges on Tuesday as the case opened.

Park, who won 400 meters freestyle gold and 200 meters freestyle silver at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, -tested positive for a banned anabolic steroid at an out-of-competition control before the Asian Games last year.

Park blamed the injection - which was administered in July - for the positive test of urine samples he provided in September.

Last month he was banned for 18 months by world swimming body FINA.

Kim had been "victimized as a scapegoat" ahead of the FINA hearing, the Yonhap news agency quoted her lawyer, Moon Jeong-il, as saying in court.

"Kim has no professional knowledge in sports and had never treated an -athlete before," Moon said, adding that she was an anti-aging expert.

According to Moon, Park had agreed it was his responsibility to determine if any treatment provided by Kim might cause a doping problem.

The doctor had used the steroid -Nebido because Park's testosterone level was lower than average, he said.

Park, South Korea's first Olympic swimming medalist, also won two -silver medals at the 2012 London Olympic Games, along with 400 meters gold in the world championships in 2007 and 2011.

But he has struggled to repeat that form and failed to win a title at his home Asian Games in September -despite competing in a pool that bore his name.

Returning to South Korea after his FINA hearing, Park made an -emotional public apology, saying it was "all my fault" and begging for forgiveness.

The FINA ban ends in March 2016, which theoretically gives Park time to prepare for the Olympic Games, but a new rule instituted by the Korean -Olympic Committee last year could see him miss the Rio Games.

The rule bars any athlete suspended for doping from competing with the national team for three years. In Park's case, that would bar him until March 2019 - by which time the 25-year-old would be past his best.

TOKYO, June 15 (Xinhua) -- The resignation Wednesday of Tokyo Gov. Yoichi Masuzoe for his misappropriation of political funds has once again brought to the fore the inherent "wheeler-dealer" type of dealings that have plagued Japanese politics for decades.

Masuzoe, 67, was elected to be the governor of Tokyo two years ago following his predecessor being ousted for a 53 million yen (500,000 U.S. dollars) funding scandal, and at that time pledged to the public that he would do his utmost to restore their faith in the capital's politics and in doing so, earned himself more than 2 million votes to secure his position in landslide victory.

But Masuzoe, in a time of austerity as the nation's economy has continued to stagnate under the flawed policies of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's "Abenomics" blend of economic revival rhetoric, has duped the public with his double-dealings and raised questions about the ruling Liberal Democratic Party-led coalition's decision to back him in the gubernatorial election in the first place.

Suffice to say, Masuzoe, who is well-schooled in international politics and no stranger to parliament as he served as the nation's health minister for years, has offered little by way of exegesis and even refused to elaborate on his misuse of political funds under questioning from the Tokyo assembly, with his resignation not just an admission of culpability but the certitude that his name will now be added to an ever-growing list of politicians and high-profile government officials that have been caught with their hands in the till.

Political analysts have been quick to point to a culture of back room dealings, cash for favors and extravagant private expenses being written off at the tax payer's expense that have and continue to be synonymous with politics in Japan.

Since Abe retook office in December 2012, no less than four of his own ministers have been forced out of their positions for similar scandals, with Masuzoe's misconduct doing little to restore faith in a system that has been consistently plagued by financial indiscretions, carried out by officials entrusted to serve the public, but instead choosing to serve themselves at the expense of hardworking taxpayers.

Former Economy and Fiscal Policy Minister Akira Amari was also forced to step down in January for his involvement in a bribery scandal involving him providing special political favors to a construction company in return for free entertainment, gifts and millions of yen in cash.

Amari had brokered Japan's involvement in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) in his concurrent role as Economic Revitalization Minister in charge of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, with his resignation also leaving a nasty taste in the mouth of the taxpayers and the electorate and also contributing to diminishing faith in the government to live up to its own pledge that Japan's "money politics" would remain a thing of the past and the political funds control law be upheld and followed to the letter.

As political observers have highlighted the amounts of money or the equivalent in illicit receipt of gifts, services and entertainment are far from paltry. In Masuzoe's case he used 450,000 yen (4,239 U.S. dollars) from his now defunct political funds body to pay for accommodation and dining expenses alone for a trip he made with his family to a luxury hotel in the New Year holiday season.

Added to that has also been accused of taking multiple trips overseas since he became governor in 2014, to the tune of 200 million yen (1.88 million U.S. dollars).
