While it's clearly a stupid act, i don't see the point of mentioning stupid tweeter comments by the journalist.

Like “French people have no class.” = does it help calming down people ?

Media are often the root of those stupid behaviors, both sides !

"If he is innocent and thinks countries other than Japan are fairer, why didn't he go to the United States or France?" asked the prosecutor, indicating a lack of faith in Lebanon's judicial system.

Did they really listen to Ghosn ?

He said Lebanon was easier for logistics.

And USA : he's not a citizen and ask the black community if it's a fair country ...

Posted in: Do you think Carlos Ghosn did the right thing by fleeing from Japan while out on bail? See in context

The question is put in the wrong way, you can't ask if it's the RIGHT thing since legally it's not.

But if you ask if we UNDERSTAND why he did that (or would have done the same), we can answer the question on our personal opinion.

Posted in: Ghosn carried spare French passport while out on bail in Japan See in context

Japanese authorities planned this escape to avoid a ridiculous trial.

That second passeport known by authorities doesn't surprise me.

Next episode : Japanese authorities knew Ghosn's flight plan.

Even if it's with dirty money, it's good for democracy if Ghosn's team can win this battle against a corrupted system.
