(On the retraction of the request to financial institutions and liquor retailers regarding the dining and drinking establishments that continue to serve alcoholic beverages)

As it was mentioned in the explanation given by officials in-charge last week, the specific contents of the request have never been discussed. Even though the request has already been retracted, I would like to apologize for the trouble we have caused to many people.
