Posted in: Lawyers protest detention of Kelly, Ghosn See in context

Good to hear, these 2 don't deserve to be released on bail as they will flee and destroy evidence. They know their guilt and it's refreshing to see elite CEOs being held to account for their crimes for once

Posted in: Don't contact our board members, Renault tells Nissan See in context

Renault told alliance partner Nissan to stop contacting the French company's directors ahead of a Thursday board meeting as the Japanese automaker tried to share evidence of wrongdoing by its ousted chairman Carlos Ghosn, two sources said.

Ever since Ghosn's Nov 19 arrest in Japan, Renault and the French government, the automaker's biggest shareholder, have demanded to see the findings of a Nissan internal investigation that include allegations of financial misconduct by the 64-year-old executive.

So Nissan tries to share their findings of Ghosn's disgraceful crimes with Renault, after Renault demanded to see the findings, now Renault are saying they don't want to see it?

Jeez, no wonder France is going down the drain. Time to cull the Renault parasite from the Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance, they are by far the weakest link

Good to hear these dangerous arsonists have been arrested and will be punished to the full extent of the law.

Can you imagine what would happen if a foreigner tried to start a fire outside the great hall in Tiananmen Square? Hint: they would be tortured to death over a few decades

Well done to the court! He shouldn't be let out, his flight is guaranteed and there is a 100% chance he will destroy evidence and commit more crimes. Show no mercy

Posted in: Language skills remain major concern for foreign nursing care workers See in context

 If Japan could pull its head out of its own "bleep" and make English an official second language, then all of this barrier bs wouldn't be an issue. So many other countries have realized this long ago and have taken the necessary steps to be part of the global community.  

Pray tell, which countries have made English an "official second language?" France? Nope, official only French. Germany? Nope, official only German. Surely you will be able to name a few since you said there are so many other countries who have done this.

Please name 5 countries with a similar situation to Japan who have adopted English as an official language despite having an established native language.

The market will work its magic and force these nursing homes out of business in short time. No one except a fool would send their loved ones to a place where no one speaks the language. What a joke

Posted in: What do you think are the pros and cons of accepting more foreign blue-collar workers into Japan? See in context

The cons are too many to be listed, and they are obvious. The pros are that many Japanese companies will be able to use cheap, albeit far lower quality, labour however this is far, far overshadowed over the massive problems they will bring.

A terrible mistake but one that will be quickly rectified

Posted in: 69 foreign technical interns died in Japan between 2015 and 2017: Justice Ministry See in context

69 out of 258,000? Sounds like a less than average death rate to me. It's good to hear these interns have it so good compared to where they came from

Posted in: Ghosn admits he signed papers on post-retirement pay; Saikawa also questioned See in context

Our Ghosn is finally learning, it's a good first step that he has finally confessed to part of his incredible crimes. More will surely follow. His next learning task after that is learning how to behave in prison.

Posted in: Ex-Nissan chief Ghosn to be served with fresh arrest warrant See in context

Good to hear! Keep him locked up until all evidence is compiled. If released, there is a 100% chance he will destroy evidence and flee the country. No CEO is above the law, as much as some would like. He is done

Posted in: How Carlos Ghosn has been spending his days in a cell in Kosuge See in context

Sounds like he's got it good; good food, classical music, tea and coffee. If he were in America or some other country with blighted prison cultures, he probably wouldn't survive. Lucky him, and I guess his 10 years will go by in a breeze despite his disgraceful crimes

Posted in: Japanese prosecutors say they will detain Ghosn as long as needed See in context

Boo hoo have a cry, it's for this criminal's benefit that he remains detained so he can get used to the long, long incarceration that the criminal will be getting and deserves.

He will be doing the time for his crimes, no one is above the law no matter how rich and powerful, unlike certain powerful persons in other countries

Yeah right, they're treated well in Japan. If they don't like it why don't they seek asylum elsewhere? Regarding the public property vandalism, prosecute the criminals to the full extent of the law. If some people are allowed to vandalize, all people are allowed to vandalize

Posted in: Nissan ends Ghosn's two-decade reign with last-minute Renault backing See in context

Ghosn had since 2002 instructed that about $100,000 a year be paid to his elder sister as remuneration for a non-existent advisory role

Jeez, not even Trump has stooped that low, yet.. Ghosn is finished

Posted in: Supporters of foreign workers call for same pay, permanent residence See in context

If these temporary visitors do the same job and at the same quality, then should they receive the same pay. That is fair and reasonable and no company should be expected to do otherwise. That's how business works.

PR? No, just no. This is a program for technical interns only

I guess from now on all Canadian kids will grow up with a sanitized version of history with flowers and magic only, and anything that "offends" anyone will be expunged from history!

The whistleblower should receive a massive bonus for outing this super rich criminal, what a hero. Good to know his identity is protected as well. A warning to all CEOs who think they're above the law. Ghosn is finished

Glad that it's been made crystal clear that South Korea and North Korea are one and the same, although not surprising whatsoever. South Korea is now a permanently disgraced nation and they should be treated on the same level as their North Korean collaborators

There's no problems with this, if you attack a police officer in the street with rocks, you will be shot and killed, no one will bat an eyelid. Why would it be any different if you attacked a military checkpoint defending a nation's border?

Looks like ALTs will have to start job hunting. The hilarious objections to technology having a role in teaching reminds me of the luddites and their very, very lost cause. No one can stop technological progress no matter how conservative you are

A huge example needs to be made of Saudi Arabia here. If they get off with no punishment, then other despotic nations around the world will feel free to start torturing and cutting up their citizens into pieces in their embassies and consulates around the world. This crime is quite unprecedented and we will all regret it if SA gets off free
