That raises even more questions:

Why don't they publish the name of the offender?

Are this majong meetings the source of all the leaks of the prosecutors?

Is the majong the standard procedure for embezzle the authorities?

What concerns me is that he is getting 7,000万円 as retirement bonus, and he's gonna keep his salary unto the ages of ages.

He should have gambled many years ago.

A similar thing just happened yesterday in China.

The police forcibly brought the democratic leader out of the parlament to have a vote for the pro-comunist leader.

Abe is getting rid of the opposition, nevertheless.

Innocent until proven guilty.

In Japan is: guilty until proven guilty.

Specially if you're gaijin or yakuza.

There's no mercy for gaijins and yakuzas.

23 days of solitary confinement for abandonment. Another 23 days for hiding a corpse. Another 23 for intent of murder....

Until he confesses, then prison.

Posted in: Elderly people could carry a card saying, 'If I fall ill and am taken to hospital, treat young people first.' See in context

In the hypothetical situation in that you have to chose witch one to treat first.

You go for the elder one first. The young can wait.

To ignore a patient its a criminal action, and will put you in serious legal troubles.

We were doing like that in Ambulances, at my home country.

Would be the ultimate shame to Japan if Turkey drops charges against the suspects, and Lebanon reckons Ghosn as a political refugee.

@saitamajin @Peeping_Tom

Ghosn might not be a criminal.

If the basic human rights of the pursuing country are not guaranteed, then Ghosn will be considered a refugee, not a criminal.

Gotta love how desperate are the Japanese prosecutors.

I'll laugh so much wen Kelly gets aquainted this summer. They have been postponing the trial to save face, same as Ghosn trial.

They always say "suicide"when they have no clue about the murderer.

Lots of policework has been avoided in this case saying it's a suicide.
