It's been translated a few times on Reddit (all the translations vary a bit) but the gist is he's very sorry!  Tongue

I can guess what he's saying without any translation.

Translation:

[news announcer] Today, company Mt. Gox has filed for bankruptcy with liabilities of hundreds of millions of dollars. President of Mt. Gox, Mark Karpeles made a brief statement...

[switch to Mark Karpeles] Hello, today I am embarking on my new career as one of an elite group of super rich people. I am hoping to make friends with Ricky Martin. I want to thank you all for the bitcoins that are making this possible. I am very sorry for those of you who got screwed, but it is going towards a good cause, such as the multi-level, gem-encrusted cat playhouse on my new island. I look forward to winding up Mt. Gox as soon as possible so I can get out of this god-forsaken country and move somewhere French is spoken.

This isn't a man.

I translated this.

Presenter:
The representative of Tokyo's Mount Gox, which has halted withdrawals of internet virtual currency Bitcoin, has just given an interview and apology.

Mark K:
It is inexcusable (this is a standard formal way of apologizing in Japan).
The system had a weak point, and the bitcoin disappeared (lit. "became not there"). We have caused a great deal of trouble (again this is a canned formal apology phrase used frequently in Japanese) and are truly sorry (again this is the 'it is inexcusable' construct).

Presenter:
Today CEO Mark Karpeles revealed that with close to 3,000,000,000 yen in excess liabilities, Mount Gox has filed for civil rehabilitation proceedings. As there is the possibility that Bitcoin were withdrawen illegally via unauthorized access, filing of a criminal complaint is under consideration.


I also wrote a transcript, for those of you that read japanese.

Presenter:
インタネット上の仮想通貨ビットコインの取引を停止した東京のマウントゴックスの代表が先ほど会見し謝罪しました

Mark Karpeles:
申し訳ありませんでした。(This is what the show's caption says - if it's what Mark says then he pronounced it HORRIBLY - sounds like he says moshiwake oi arimashita)
システムに弱いところがあってビットコインがいなくなって、(まあ)、皆に結果で「あの~ま」ご迷惑をおかけてしまって「あのー」本当に申し訳ありませんと思います。(He also seems to use iru instead of aru here - which is weird as iru is only for animate objects. Mark may just have been very nervous, but it seems like his Japanese is not too crash hot.)

Presenter:
マークカペレス代表はマウントゴックスが30億円近い債務超過きょう付け東京地裁に民事再生手続開始を申し立てと明らかにしました。また、不正アクセスにより、違法にビットコインが引き出された可能性があるとして、刑事告訴う検討してることです

Unlevereged financial instruments acting as a store of value that fluctuate 50% within 10 minutes is perfectly acceptable. I think it should be offered in IRA form to soon to be retirees.

I am thinking how the F can this mother F ker still smile in the press conference. If he thinks he is safe in Japan he is wrong. Think about how much did the Yakuza has lose on MtGox. I beg this prick will be dead in the next few months.
