Nissan are already filing for exagetated damages against Ghosn (who is still a hostage to Japans so-called legal system).
This is how they're going to do their business. Shareholders should opt out now. There's no future for Nissan because they'll stick to the past until they run the company down to the ground. Or they will sell to China before that happens.
The oyaji's of this generation is just bad.

Why is it called a trial if he already admitted guilt?
1 ( +1 / -0 )
Do they still check if they are actually police?

If the prosecutors seriously believe that Ghosn could tamper with evidence, then what kind of evidence do they have? Finger prints? DNA? Who do they think they are fooling? Not that I need an answer to that (cough cough, themselves cough)

@tinawatanabe, yes nobody. J-prosecutors are nobody. LOL

Some people find it difficult to understand. It doesn’t matter if he is guilty or not, the way he’s being treated, as with any other person suspected of a crime, Japanese or otherwise, is a violation of basic universal human rights. Fine, lock him up if he’s guilty, but let the court decide on that. If he is guilty, and the prosecutors have solif evidence of that, why must they keep him in detention for more than 100 days?

What’s the point of now seeing his wife other than harrassment? If he ever wantsed to influence the witnesses through his wife, he can speak with someone and that some can speak to his wife. Japan is looking stupider and stupider everyday.

@ksteer, no. Someone is an idiot, but it's not him.

So you mean detaining Ghosn did nothing because he can still destroy evidence and influence witnesses?
5 ( +6 / -1 )
There’s no need for other attorneys to smear the prosecutors. Prosecutors are fully capable of doing that to themselves. Lol
@semperfi, facts? You mean the tidbits of illegally leaked rumors by an anonymous person?

It’s funny how some people still try to find and make excuses for the Japan inJustice system. Just exactly what prosecutors are trying to do. They dug their hole too deep they cannot get out.

Whew. Still, J-prosecutors are incompetent. They should all bundle together in a sheet of lies, and only talk to each other and believe that what they are doing is "just".

J-cop talking about ethics? What a joke.

The charge is “aggravated breach of trust”, not “money laundering”. I guess there’s paper trail that makes the alleged “laundering” legal, so they couldn’t charge him with that. Instead they charged him with ambiguously interpreted “breach of trust”.

I’m sure this have been reported to them many times. I wonder what they have done then.
2 ( +2 / -0 )
@semperfi, finding justification for everything the J-proscutors are doing? There’s no need for that. They are corrupt, incompetent, illogical and has no common sense. Detaining someone for the sole reason of destroying evidence, when in fact they don’t use evidence to convict someone reeks of incompetency.

Why is it so surprising to many here that prosecutors want to question her?
Because in Japan, confession has more weight than paper trails. Doesn't matter if you have tons of evidence, as long as the person confessed, that person is guilty. A quick google search will reveal how they have manipulated the law just to convict an innocent person.
If there are evidences, there's no need for questioning. That's how antiquated Japan injustice system is. That's how incompetent the prosecutors are.

@LB315, Western way may not be the rightest way, but Japan certainly is NOT. So let's stop pretending that Japan is in line with the first world countries, because it is not, at least when we talk about justice. Japan's justice system is nothing to be proud of, so why I wonder, some are so proud of it?

@Educator60, no purpose. Tokyo prosecutors are just dumb. They probably didn’t verbally ordered their underlings to confiscate the passport, because that would be on record and can be used against them. But they can still claim its for evidence if they saw it during their search. They also cannot verbally ask Mrs. Ghosn to surrender her passports, so if the US passport is hidden well they could never have taken it.

He is entitled to a [defence] of substantial truth from defamation/libel.
Not for Japanese prosecutors, no he is not. (Wow, I'm so biased against prosecutors. I wonder why...)

Odd thing to do for an innocent person, put up conspiracy theories, but won't name names.
Like how prosecutors leak information to the media without being named? It's called PR stunt. If Nissan and prosecutors can do it, so does Ghosn.

They didn't obstruct traffic, so Road Traffic Law was not violated. Or was it? I forgot, this is Japan...

@Goodlucktoyou, "charges are stealing Japanese tax money and stealing Nissan’s money"
...Of which he said he is innocent.

@Goodlucktoyou, so Lindsay can't generalize, but you already concluded that Ghosn is guilty? How did you get that?

Brilliant. The contrast between Saikawa and him is hundred million miles. No wonder Nissan has been going down since Saikawa was CEO. Utterly incompetent, he should resign.
