These guys are SO screwed! They are going to face the full extent of Japanese law and will actually have to BOW in front of the media and say "moushiwake nai"! It'll be pure and utter hell, and someone might, in the end, might have to resign to another amakudari job and with a huge compensation package. They are done!

Sure. They didn't forgive the loans for all those lost in the great tsunami, so you really think they will forgive loans of greed and pure capitalism gone under? Nope. You borrowed it so you pay for it.
