This absolutely horrendous. How can a ruling for an incident that occurred in Japan be looked at according the rule of law in another country? It pains to see poor people being dealth with in such unconscionable manner. The incident took place in Japan but the court is limiting compensation based on Nepalese law. I can't believe that this is taking place in the 21st century. Sad to see that a country badly in need of cheap labor is exploiting the very people that they are reliant up on for the provision of such labour and that justice is out of reach for them in the law courts. The man died while in custody obviously due to negligence and no justice will be served. Very sad! Japan needs to do better. It would not be surprising to see this being dragged on further to the frustration of the family members.

If it were me I would probably pay someone to transfer the money to an offshore account and use it to buy stocks overseas and turn myself into the police. Japan is an Island so it would be very difficult to escape. I would go to jail and do my time and beg for leniency and lie that I used the money to pay for Luna crypto currency and that it crashed, hence why I lost all the money.

Going to space is a waste of time and money. There are so many problems that the world is facing right that it is beyond me to think that people would even want to think about colonizing Mars or anywhere in outer space for that. Going to space only serves to fulfill the egos of politicians in wealthy countries. Space travel is just BS in my humble opinion. If someone can come up with one logical reason as to why it is necessary, then I will change my opinion.

What a dumb person. The least he could have done was to get some sulfuric acid and dissolve the body and and dilute the remains with tap water and and flush it down the toilet or throw it out when it is raining. What an amateur!!!!! Gosh

Posted in: #MeToo movement journalist sues lawmaker for liking defaming tweets See in context

The main function of a legal system is for the equitable resolution of differences between affected parties. I read article twice to try to get a deep understanding of the issues at play here. One Shiori Ito, wants to sue someone for liking a tweet. In my humble opinion I view such a legal case as being;


The liker of the post was not the maker and hence cannot be held liable. Simply liking a statement cannot be discerned to mean that one agrees with it.

If she should succeed in court, it would set a dangerous legal precedent for the Japanese legal system because it would amount to negating free speech.

The liker of a Twitter post cannot possibly be held legally liable for a post because the action of liking something does not mean that they are promoting said post so cannot be held liable for libel or defamation in any respect.

The action of Shiori Ito could be seen as bullying

In any event, such a lawsuit should be seen as frivolous in the law courts and not be allowed to succeed. The matter of rape should never be taken lightly the hand of the law should always act swiftly and firmly to protect victims of abuse. To what extent should this protection be afforded?? Surely not to vilify everyone and anyone who the victim identifies as a perpetrator but rather to afford the victim justice and damages for the harm done to her person and the action of liking a Tweet does not equate to further harm being enacted up on a victim.

Posted in: Mother of 'Terrace House' star who killed herself to press charges against cyberbullies See in context

I cannot see how one could be held liable for a suicide. Hana Kimura, an adult, woefully took her own life. For others to be held liable it would be unconscionable and would set a dangerous legal precedent. Who really knows why Hana took her own life? Perhaps, she was suffering from some deep-seated issues and the bullying brought them out . In my humble opinion I fail to see how mere cyberbullying could have lead to her suicide. It is not as though the naysayers were personally known to her or had anything to gain from bullying her. I fail to see how one could be held liable. If for example, she was being bullied on Twitter she could have chosen to simply not visit that website. We are talking about cyberspace here, where anyone can become anything they want to be and express their opinions as freely as they wish. I strongly believe that. that is a right that should be protected. If the internet should become regulated; Where then should we go?

I have been following this case for quite a while and I am quite saddened by the loss of such a young life. Hana is truly gone too soon. If anyone should be held liable i think that it should be the cast members of Terrace House, in particular that individual whom she bullied on set, not the public at large. Thanks for reading my humble opinion.
