And why have they not named him?

why did he give himself up? maybe because it's free room and board for many years

Japan does not have an extradition treaty with the Philippines

Although not totally unheard of, odd that these 2 countries generally considered friendly don’t have this.

Beware, your life can be snuffed out in the Philippines for as little as $50.

...ask any Philippeano.

If he has been living a life of abject poverty like so many people in the Philippines, a term in a Japanese jail may seem like luxury. At least he won't have to get used to eating rice,which one inmate has been complaining about lately.

I woiuld suspect that that could indeed be a major factor in his decision. probably better diet than what he is currently eating as well

Hope he gets punished to the fullest extent of the law... I'm hoping the death penalty personally!

The Philippines recently extradited the scammer Kaminskas, who although is technically Japanese, is a naturalized Phillipino.

Though I feel a high level of anger the same as you must feel, that a life was taken needlessly.

Might be better to word itthis fashion.

Let all those know living in Japan of all Nationalities that if you commit murder. Japan will deliver swift and full justice. That the penalty for murder will be administered to the fullest under the Japanese justice system. That murdering anyone residing in Japan will never be tolerated.

As far as the Philippine National turning himself in. He may have had a conscience that was eating at him and wanted to atone for his crime.

Yes, does not sit well with me this statement.

Let those foreigners know for certain that any harm to our citizens will warrant the fullest punishment to the law.

I hope they catch the 3rd member too.

I am also curious whta made the 2nd suspect surrender.

I noticed that one of the suspects has a Japanese middle name Mori could it be that he has Japanese blood?

It could be that he just felt guilty about what he had done. Prison is never a luxury. Nothing is worth giving up your freedom and being told when to eat, sleep and crap.

Honey---Japan has an extradition treaty with the USA so there should be no reason why extraditions woud not be carried out.

"There is no pillow so soft as a clear conscience." A few seconds of joy turned into a lifetime of misery for these criminals.
