The Emperor is head of state. He is not to interfere in politics.
Sport is not political (in theory).
Perhaps Japan's Head of State should speak out more on various issues (non-political, of course).

I wouldn't say that the UK is divided, and the shock waves are now little ripples. In 5 years we all move on

If the university is allowed to exist then there should be no discriminations. Koreans work and pay taxes too. There are hundreds of private universities.

Unfortunately, under Japan's system, immigration falls within the jurisdiction of the Ministry of ( so called) Justice.
Therefore, the bureaucrat prosecutor will probably, by instinct. do everything to not make a case.
International pressure is upon him / her, but Japan is, again by instinct, xenophobic.

Follow the rules. Don't try to abuse the system. Have the correct paperwork. You will be fine!
Japanese officials do not even follow their own rules when it comes to immigtation. They act arbitrarily with their own discretion and often abuse it, making up their own rules.

I have to say that the picture above is lovely. Mrs.Ghosn showed dignity throughout, dispite Japans sicko prosecutors trying to frame her, and Japans pathetic judges forbidding Mr.Ghosn from contacting her.

Come back to Japan, have your day in court and "clear your name", if you are so confident, Ghosn.
If he refuses, Japan should pay off senior gov't officials in Lebanon to capture and bring him back.
Lebonan had already told Japan where to go in regards to Ghosn. Unlike cheap and nasty litlle hostage taking Japanese officials, Lebonese officials have integrity. The mentality of the above comment really does portray Japan as the Land of the Rising Rot.

Well done Mr.Ghosn. Let's hear his side of the story in a fair way, and not the "This is Japan" way. Any country with a sense of law receiving an International Arrest Warrent issued in Japan should consign it immediately to the waste paper basket.

Ghosn is not free. He is in a prison called Beirut.
Ghosn is free, and not in prison. He lives in Beirut, Lebanon which has an advanced legal system that has integrity. I wish Mr. Ghosn a long, happy, phosperous life with his family, free from a hostage taking, blackmailing culture called Japan. (Incidently, Japan still owes Mr.Ghosn money for illegal detention).
As for the Taylors, true martyrs, and true hero's.

Now that they hsve pleaded guilty, how much money will the Japanese legal system (culture) try to scam out of them. It will.mo doubt be disproportionate and exorbitant.

Two cities nuked to a cinder, more cities firebombed, hundreds of thousands of civilians dead, their navy and air force mostly non-existent by wars end isn't enough absolution for you? The Allies bled Japan white by the end of that war. Does every living Japanese citizen have to bow to the Koreans and empty their wallets for them When is enough enough? The war was over almost 76 years ago and the Koreans signed a peace treaty with Japan in 1965 setting "for all time all wartime claims and reparations.
Two cities were damaged but are now thriving, and one city (Tokyo) was bombed. (Now thriving). Thriving because the Allies invested in Japan giving Japan a new constitution and rather than bleed Japan, prosphered Japan's Self Defence Force. Incidently no living Japanese citizen has ever had to bow to the Koreans and empty their wallets for them, and incidently thousands of civilians died in many countries diring the war which ended almost 76 years ago.

When it comes to this kind of offence, Japan is actually one of the more lenient of the Asian countries. In some countries this offence can receive a prison sentence of up to 30 years. A very foolish man.

He was not interrogated, he was questioned. Japan, with absolutely no sense of rule of law cannot understand the difference.

Hold on, let me get this straight.
So at the beginning of the year we had no vaccines and for two main reasons (officially):
(a) we are managing the fight against covid, we have few infected and daily tests confirm it. We don't need to vaccinate.
b) we would have vaccinated a long time ago, if only foreign countries didn't block vaccine supplies (and the like).
Then there were other problems with distribution, storage, and not running out of supplies. And now we're sending it to Taiwan. That's feathering your own nest.
Japan obviously does not trust Astra Zeneca (certain rumours) so they giving them to Taiwan. Always remember, Japan always looks after number 1.

More than 10 million in Japan have received COVID-19 vaccinations so far.
That is good going, although it is still only about 0.8% of the population.

Maybe a classic case of "If mother says no, then ask grandmother", where he is looking for redemption or approval anywhere he can get it?
As others have mentioned, it has absolutely no bearing on legal proceedings in Japan.
He is a fugitive.
Redemption from what, he has not appeared in any court.
Fugitive? Maybe only according to Japan's so-called justice system.
