What does being Japanese have to do with anything ?

Well they are the specialists, the ones that "do not understand well the difference between racism, free speech, an "unique culture"" So how shocking to discover something "so Japanese" is practiced by Gaijins too... Feeling less special maybe ?

What is the point, from an information perspective, to give the entire name of a person that just died ?

Privacy, respect for family, is that complicated ? Even after death ?

I think the end of the conclusion is cut, let me complete it:

"In Japan, there are strict requirements and procedures stipulated in law with regard to holding suspects and defendants in custody, with due consideration given to the guarantee of human rights."

"Unfortunately human rights do not apply to foreigners and the strict requirements and procedures, well ... do not apply to prosecution"

2020, "fights back", denial, FAQ on internet.

Posted in: Ghosn tells Japanese media he has plenty of documents to prove innocence See in context

"on Friday, the Japanese justice minister who said that Ghosn should "prove" his innocence"

Corrected by the Lawyer, Apologies from miss Mori.

No country whether we like it or not deserves such incompetence ... admitting at top level that just no one is following the laws and basic concepts they should ensure are applied... Just before the Olympics xD

This Ghosn story whether he is innocent or not is going to be the main topic for Japan with Olympics in 2020.

What a communication fail ...

Probably many foreigners will hesitate to come here, especially high profile. Bad timing too.
