Posted in: Ghosn granted release on ¥500 mil bail by Tokyo District Court See in context

So his arrest for breaking his previous bail conditions was spurious? Just happened the day before he was going to talk? If your not laughing you're crying. And if for some reason you come to the attention of prosecutors I suggest renting a submarine a hand glider and a faulse facial hair addition. The combination of these would balance out the stupidly you are going to have to endure.

Might have Oked his bail but I'm guessing as soon as his wife turns up both he and she off to detention. Also didn't they claim he broke his bail conditions the day before he was due to speek? Or was that a regrettable mistake? It's not about justice at all, more would speak out but sadly they are now bed ridden and incapable of saying anything. That's what 30+ years of wrongful incarceration does. He might well be guilty of something or not. Rapists don't get this treatment nor do ex government workers who kill. Would use a magnifying glass but thats not needed it's pretty obvious without.

When a states citizens have to flee to enjoy even basic human rights there is a problem. When that same state massacres its own citizens and proudly display heads on a pike, that's a decent into state endorsed evil.

We all need to be protected from these abonamtions, a life in confinement seems more than fair. Don't need to kill anyone, to teach don't kill? growing old in a institution extends the punishment not end it. After a life time in jail that smug smirk will turn upside down.

Prosecutors have to double down, no confession no case. Japan's inept prosecutors and legal system had an internal Nissan report that started the ball rolling but apparently listed actions that were not technically illegal. Or implicated those that wrote the report. Have to incarcerate him to illicit a false confession which has not worked. Ok let's go for his family. They can release information that alludes to crime with out actually being a crime, and he announces he will retort the smear and is arrested the next day. Not a shining example of due process.

Well what do you expect? Crown prince ordered the chopping up of someone who hurt his feelings. Was there any cumupence.? A mere massacre with heads on stakes...that's totally medieval. What on earth can you do with people who order, participated in such acts. Buy their oil? Sell them weapons or as they call them fire sticks. Best to avoid these underdeveloped people.

Soon as she steps back into Japan the prosecutors will undoubtedly arrest her, visa violations or something. Can't have her traveling the world exposing Japan's injustice system. That's downright regrettable.

Sorry about that, we are seriously trying to wring more money out of you, please understand after we Finnish Talking about how great we are you can go about your lives with extra tax and lower income. You'd have to be insane to complain. You might have paid 10 times the roads worth but we expect 1000 times profit from it.

They obviously didn't plan for a tsunami? In a tsunami prone area, now scrambling to justify the lacking of protection of potential targets in a country rich in historical home grown terrorist activity. I'd face palm myself but as a foreigner can't vote it's totally on the locals.

Zichi, good post! Sadly it should not be necessary. But we now live in a polarised world that defines you either nuts or nuttier. I was moderated for saying something apparently I should not have said? It's really getting to the point that wearing a McDonald's uniform makes you superior. What the hell happened to informed opinions or common sence. Too left? Dark clouds for the future. Winter is coming.

Posted in: Stubbed out: Japanese university stops hiring smoking professors See in context

I might be too old, when I was growing up The government actively encouraged smoking and allowed it to be marketed as cool. Suddenly it's a bad thing. It is a bad thing I'm not fighting that point at all. It's bad but my childhood government supported an addictive habit that was then pro-ported to be harmless? Thankfully society is wiser today. Yet I'm still addicted, I never smoke inside or on the street. It's disgusting but I'm addicted. So now at the cusp of death I'm ostensibly cast out of the same society that encouraged me to smoke. That hurts.

10 days holiday, is a problem? That's speeks volumes. Australia/ New Zealand 30 days are common, and if you work long enough exta days+ after 10 years long service paid leave for 6 months. Mental health days, sick leave. But it's Japan so suffering even being given a holiday is to be admired. It's funny/sad that people are so worried about getting a holiday while boasting that it's so great that people from 3rd world nations are lining up (not so much) to be exploited. Then get angry they don't appreciate being abused? Work is not so important it's what you do outside of work that counts. Or I could be wrong? At my funeral don't think any of my work people will attend. But my family will....just to make sure I'm actually dead.

It's the defense attorneys - who have no other concrete defense strategy - but to resort to a public campaign to 'smear' the integrity of the prosecutions.

really?

Think the numerous unnamed sources that weekly 'smear' Carlos with stories of his nefarious actions would point to the direct opposite of the defence 'smearing' prosecutors. They the prosecutors are alone showing they are at a loss to find any integrity. It's no longer about guilt it's now about fair. The prosecutors did Nissans/ government bidding and are really finding it hard to prove anything. Naferious is not illegal. The laws are made by people who use those same loopholes yet they are free.

Posted in: Prosecutors suspect Ghosn's wife contacted parties linked to his case See in context

a source close to the matter said Tuesday. Who is this source? They are very active. Every week a new tit bit for the media. That prosecutors use? this source who is incognito and is probably not actually factual? Is used as an excuse to ban family visits? So he won't give a confession their response is further isolate him using a unnamed source? Where is the evidence? The prosecutors seem so desperate to avoid any evidence and prefer innuendo and metal tourture as proof. If their case is based solely on confession they apparently have nothing left but torturous techniques up their sleeve.

if he is found guilty it's a verdict made without any professional diligence and will be discounted by most people. But to save face and do Nissans bidding it has to be done.

It's a disaster life forced on them. A princess can't marry a commoner because the IHA don't approve. Anyone else think this is wrong? For those who say nice life, give me 6 months telling you what to dress in what to say, See how you like it when I control every thing you do. I'd give you billions of dollars but the catch is I'm in charge. Can they spend it without paper work? And approvals? NO. It seriously is a depressing life.

And quite a few more back fully automatic weapons, neither benefit society in any way. So I'd discount their opinion. Unless I was wearing waders, a bullet proof vest, and a pocket full of stones. I believe someone one once said turn the other cheek...well that's worked out well.

She can't visit her family without notifying the IHA months in advance, Kentoro in charge of veichals needs documents authorising the use of a car. The wardrobe staff need notice of what will she wear. The Shinto dudes need to check if the visit is auspices before the full moon or after it. If there is a woman thing going on. It's a very big pile of paperwork that needs to be filled stamped and Oked by the IHA and the government, it's not like she/ he could pop down to the the convenience store and grab a cup noodle and a Chu-hi.

Posted in: Competition for talent forces Japanese firms to revamp recruiting process See in context

Mass intake of workers just complicates a business, need someone now?, have to wait. Want someone with international education, experience? Sorry the rest of the world are on a different time scale. Next these mass movements of workers every April breaking up families, having adults live in dormitories, 1 LDK mansions under strict rules. It's not rocket science unless your in a JAXA mansion. It on first seeing, workers bussed together to the work place then bussed home to eat together was bizarre to say the least. The last thing I want is socialising with people I see everyday. But this move is a start to modernising Japan's archaic work place culture. A small step might lead to a lunge.

The IHA will go out of its way to break their charges. It's about control. You could be the most educated, intelligent but they will break, bend you to be subservient to their divine sence of importance.

It's original purpose was to honour those that died, it's since become a place of historical abuse, revionest view of factual history. Other countries honor those that died for their country, but they don't make up what happened. That's the problem with Sending gifts, your wife to a place that has become a rallying cry for right wingers who lust for a return to 1930.
