She got massively abused in Japan not so long ago because she was openly supporting Black Live Matters.

You never know.
The police makes up stories, false evidence and force confessions.
In a western country you get contrasted information, but not in here.

There's some power that is boycotting the Olympics with this scandals.
There's nobody left from the initial Olympic leaders. Abe, Mori, Sato, Takeda, Inose. Are all gone.

The ruling of justice looks random.
Cannot make sense of the sentencing.

If you're curious about his room:

Lots of bailed citizens are in the run from justice.
It's popular knowledge that they aren't breaking the law because they are not CRIMINALS.
What could happen is that they would hit a prosecutor while trying to escape, then they can be charged with that.
But in no case I've ever heard that any of them was ever charged with that "CRIMINAL escapee" law, because it never applied.
Why does it suit in Ghosn case?
-3 ( +1 / -4 )
to accuse the judge of misconduct then you owe it to his court to provide the legal code that was breached and evidence that his judgement was unfair.
The law states that helping a CRIMINAL to escape is a crime.
Ghosn is not a CRIMINAL, it doesn't apply in this case.
Remind you that in law, to use precise words is essential to avoid misinterpretations.

If you are a criminal before conviction, Why have a justice system anyway?
Let's just roll a dice to decide how many years you gotta spend in jail.

There's plenty of videos on YouTube of people running away from prosecutors.
It's legal, and very common, in Japan to jump bail.
The guilty verdict is unfair. Contradicts all the rulings until this day.

Seems the sentencing is reasonable and just to me.
The fallacy is that there is no japanese law against harboring defendants out of the country.
They had to reinvent the interpretation of some unrelated law to make it fit.

These 2 admitted they were guilty.
It's called Hostage Justice.
Gosh and Kelly where rearrested multiple times summing up almost 200 days of detention each.
Same would happen to the Taylors.
Once confessed, that confession is the main evidence.

Don't be fooled.
90% of indictments are based on confession.
All this confessions are signed during an indefinite confinement and without a lawyer present.

If Japan doesn't want to honor the "Innocent until proven guilty" premise, then Japan should leave the UN.
Most Asian countries have a peculiar justice system, just like Japan, and they are doing fine.
Japan should do just fine out of the UN umbrella.

This ruling proves that Ghosn, and the Taylors, and G.Kelly are all "guilty until proven guilty"
There's not such a thing as a fair trial in Japan.

Let's forget this incident, and wait for it to happen again on the next wrongly accused citizen.
Keep Calm, and Carry On.

Don't think the man will be charged.
Just deported for breaching the Olympics Playbook.
Thanks to this incident we have learned that the Olympic bubble is not working.

Or, as soon as she leaves, she can go home, make no statements, and continue to live her life as person convicted of no crime, and therefore with no obligation to talk to the press.
A mom was wrongly accused of killing her baby, and thrown to solitary confinement for half a year.
This story needs to be public.

I wanna know the truth more than any of you.
If the police can't release any evidence, can't make any explanation.
I don't know what to think.
I need to hear her side of the story. As soon as she leaves the solitary confinement, the press must hear her out.
If it was another made up story that the police made her sign. I would be very disappointed.
-3 ( +1 / -4 )
Do you know it for real? Looks like a made up story that not even the prosecutors can explain.
No explanations. No evidence released.
The police could have killed the child as far as we know.
We know absolutely nothing. It sad the obscurity of the system.

Why do we always have this -guilty until proven guilty- argument?
She's not guilty. Do you all hear me?
You need a trial and a veredict to become guilty.

The mother hasn't done anything as far as I know.
If she had,she would be convicted.
Do you know anything I don't?
So far we have zero evidence. And the only confession could be made up. It's a common practice in Japan to make up stories and force defendants to sign them.

Won't you love a society where all trials and evidence is made public.
Where prosecutors must explain their decisions.
I wonder if that society will ever exist... ooh, wait! It's just every single county in the UN block but JAPAN.

did you not read the article? - she confessed!.
We'll never know if it was a forced confession.
So many forced confessions, you don't know what to believe anymore.

The Japanese Embassador should be in a geriatric.
Please make politicians retire at 65, so we do not need to hear these news again.

They should be free of expressing their views and opinions to the world.
Censoring them is just making their word spread faster.
Believe me, after reading this article, people all over the world will hang similar banners in their balconies.

They got an innocent mom in a jail for 7 months without any evidence. She didn't confess, so now they have to release her.

Well that took along time, and he still has no empathy for his victims or any sense of responsibility. A pitiful human.
This absolute lack of remorse is distressing me.
I bet that prosecutors are maneuvering all the case, and that old men is just a puppet.
If the j-justice were more transparent, we would follow the trial on TV and have some insights from lawyers and witnesses.
Sadly, this is Asia, it will never be transparency.
