That's common practique in Japan.

The government choose the Journalists and the questions beforehand.

You can google Kisha Club to get an idea of what American Journalism is turning into.

Nissan and Japanese regime are doing what is called a Lawfare.

Lawfare :  the misuse of legal systems and principles against an enemy, such as by damaging or delegitimizing them, tying up their time or winning a public relations victory.

The maximum penalty for the charge of falsifying fiscal statements is 10 years in prison

What's the penalty for using forced confessions on a trial?

And for hiring a hacker to spy on Ghosn e-mails?

And for denying bail for more than a year of detention?

@coskuri

Ghosn and Kelly have accepted a deal with the SEC and decided to not plead their case in US courts

Nissan, Ghost and Kelly have accepted a deal with the SEC[...]

There, just corrected that for you.

Where that ? Enron scandal started in 2001, let me quote wiki "Lay and Skilling went on trial for their part in the Enron scandal in January 2006. ".

Skilled got arrested Sept. 21, 2006.

Your info is soo much flawed I didn't bother to continue the fact checking.

Please double check the facts before posting.

Nissan if backed up fully by Japan's Government.[ https://japantoday.com/category/business/nissan-received-record-130-bil.-yen-state-loan-guarantee ]

90% of the evidence has been hidden up until today.

Nissan is barracking with the prosecutors up until the point to declare themselves guilty.

The MOJ is sadly famous for it's obscurity and faulty verdicts.

... they are gonna massacre Kelly.

Weddings at Versailles palace, $6m Amsterdam house renovations, Beirut compound upgrades, $7m to wife’s offshore companies, $20m to son in America’s company. These are all questions that should answered in court. Illegally running away is an admission of guilt.

Nissan stamped the Hanko on all that documents.

No way that the HR guy(G. Kelly) had anything to do with that.

There are still some remains of the old dealers that haven't realized yet that is a proper business now.

@Kazuaki

Yep! Just saw your link.

As sad as it gets, you're right. In Japan you're a criminal even before going to trial.

-Guilty until YOU prove you're innocent- is as real as it can get.

Bail also should be your right. Not the exception but the norm.

 罰金以上の刑に当たる罪を犯した者

This doesn't apply to Ghosn. He didn't even had a trial date yet. There's no penalties or convictions on him.

The fact that Japanese defendants can escape scot free if they are allowed bail also makes it easier to justify not granting bail in the first place, so it is kind of good for everyone.

This is sickening... You just decide no bail nobody because you're kind?!

Jose Munoz was promised nice package but only if he flew back to Japan while he was in US at that time. Luckily for him he decide not to go Japan

Lucky guy, really lucky!

The MOJ has no credibility whatsoever outside Japan... although the Taylors judge didn't get the memo.

What they trying to make is called stablecoin.

To buy stablecoins is an intermediary step to get Bitcoins cheaper.

It's actually good for us, because we can send money abroad without relaying on the expensive SWIFT system of the traditional banks.

It's very bad for Japan, lots of dividends are gonna fly abroad.

These people broke the law

No, they didn't broke the law.

Its very common to run-out after bail in Japan. There's plenty of videos in YouTube of it.

The MOJ didn't ever change that law, nobody cared until after Ghosn scape.

It implies tons of paperwork to change anything on the MOJ.

It took for them 50 years of international pressure to start videotaping some, not all, the interrogations to detainees.

Expect another 50 years for this law to take place.

Please explain your maths.

(9/1 ~ 9/4)

Infection rate numbers have no correlation whatsoever.

6.5%, 14.7%, 3.8%, 2.5%

But the infected raw numbers are very homogeneous

170, 141, 211, 136

The day before yesterday they got 141positives from a total of 956 tests.

Now we got almost the same number from a total of 5,400 tests.

Call me paranoiac and conspiranoid... but the numbers do not match to me.
