Posted in: One dead, 11 injured after fishing boat, cargo ship collide in Ibaraki port See in context

At 5.35 Am I would have thought it would have been dark, the fishing boat should have had navigation and marking lights, if they were not on, why not? as for being picked up on the ships radar, something as small as as this fishing boat might not have been picked up especially if it was close to the big freighter. Either way a sad and tragic end to a fishing trip.

It could be a legitimate import and they have been used as a scape goat for some one else's illegal actions.

@Davelavinder, the UK government enforced a strict lockdown, but as you said it didn't work, the reason for that is we have virtually no police to enforce it, unlike Southern island where my friend lives, she tells me that on most corners, islands, road junctions the police were out in force, they would check your car reg, and if you was not from that village, you was/are pulled over and questioned, unless you had proof, of where you was going and was it really necessary, you are fined on the spot. and they have a very low rate of infection by the way. and this is the same in grace where you was given an allotted time to go to the shops, and if you was caught out you was heavily fined.

Either way all of this fruit will have to be thrown away, has any one took a DNA sample from the edge of the hole? then taken a DNA swab from her? this would confirm if she had done it?

8 million yen, ( alleged ) miss use of funds, possibly violation of the political funds control law, right, send the police around to Abe sans house, arrest him, detain him, and question him, until he confesses, sorry until he voluntary tells the truth.

Thats 30 flying rats that are not spreading deceases all over the place, and not eating precious crops. The local farmers need to be checked up on just to make sure that they are not over dossing with chemicals and they are spraying the correct dosage.

Is it possible to set up a video conference between two courts? 1 in Japan and 1 in Lebanon? even if it is possible, will it happen? probably not as Ghosn will tare them apart and the Japanese prosecutors will be embarrassed, this is so one sided, its a joke.

@nippnick, how did they know it was bodily fluids? was it tested, did he say what it was? how on earth did he think that he was going to get away with this blatant act on a train???

The 5 ring that represent the Olympic flag, had the Japanese government adopted these 5 rings for the 5 stages for getting a C19 test? each one getting more difficult to obtain/jump through to qualify.

Posted in: School vice principal arrested for smearing bodily fluid on girl on train See in context

I would have thought that the fluids would have been tested in the lab, if they weren't, why not? and we should know exactly what the result was, we all know what those fluids might be, buy lets not speculate. if its what we all think it might be, we shouldn't the news headline read "former vice principle" ?

IF, it was hair gel, its not as serious, but either way spreading/wiping anything on any child is a big no no.

Has this creep been made to pay for cleaning here school ware? I wonder how much grief she has had a school from other pupils? kids can be very nasty, even if its down to name calling or xxxx,

I would hate to be down wind of this house!! it begs the question how did they provide food for all of them, this is assuming they actually fed them all. and all of that poop and wee! how did they, or didn't they dispose of it. This cruelty should have been stopped years ago.

@sir-bentley, I was about to type a very similar response, I could not agree any more, I think the Lebanese officials will be waiting a very long time, they will probably will never see this evidence at all. I wonder why that would be?

Posted in: Man arrested after refusing to pay hotel bill for 15-night stay See in context

I am surprised that the hotel boss did call the police quicker, I think in the future this might happen, as for not paying the bill, what will happen? if he has no money how can they recoup the money? it works out to be around £3400 thats a lot of plate washing! and making beds!

https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test In the UK its Free, as for paying £344 (46.500 yen) for a test, is nothing short of a rip off. I think travellers should pay something, like 7000 yen £50 ish, that would be reasonable
