There was a petition by Japanese lawyers and professionals. For me, that is enough, at least knowing that they want their system to change, too.

The prosecutors divided the charge to two sections, one for 2015-2018 and the other 2011-2015. So after this one, there's still one more set of 23 day detention. Again, utterly disgusting incompetency.

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”.

@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.

Posted in: Ghosn's wife back in Japan for questioning See in context

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.

Posted in: Ghosn not getting much help from France, analysts say See in context

@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.

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.

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.

@semperfi

What you’re stating aren’t facts. Only the courts can determine that. You cannot assume guilt simply by speculations, esp. rumors leaked by prosecutors to the media to make someone look guilty. Public opinion has nothing to do with the truth. What is always true, right, and just, is “innocence until proven guilty”. And that’s not for you to decide.

Posted in: Ghosn's wife leaves Japan to appeal to French gov't; prosecutors want her questioned See in context

Why is everyone trying to complain about the Japanese judicial system?

Universal right isn’t right because of people’s opinion. Japan’s justice system is criticized because it’s wrong. Yes, you’re correct in saying that people should follow the law of the country they live in. That doesn’t make it right. And the only thing ordinary people can do is complain and voice their resistance against unjust system.

Japan could have gone away with it except it isn’t only unjust but also unfair. Some CEO’s that have done much worse and damage are free. What does that say about the system? Is the system ruling above the prosecutors or the prosecutors and the police running the system to selectively apply justice?

Where's the opposition in Japan? Why isn't anybody in the media or government criticizing their legal system?

Probably scared of prosecutors, too. You know, they can arrest you then decide later on what to charge you. They’ll search your house and all your communications then find something vaguely illegal and accuse you of “aggravated breach of trust”, whatever that means.

Only one word comes to mind:

DISGUSTING

Read on japantimes one lawyer trying all his might defending their system. There’s nothing to defend here. It’s broken, disgusting, worse than China. They’re still trying to convince themselves otherwise, and they’re fooling only themselves. I love Japan, but this part of it is plain DISGUSTING.

Posted in: Ghosn's trial expected to start in September See in context

If it was one or two charges, I would give him the benefit of the doubt. But so many charges.

There ARE two charges. He was with Nissan for almost 20 years and they paint him as if he is crooked and criminal, when in fact they can only find TWO charges. And he has completely logical alibi for both of them.

And Nissan didn't pay for his wedding. Renault PROBABLY did, but that's still not certain. Lavish houses are not his, and are certainly not illegal.

Ordinary people may not like him only because he's rich. That's it.

"failing to stop her husband for abusing"

What about the the child services, the police, and the teachers whom Mia asked for help? Aren't they going to be charged, too? We already know the parents are guilty, there's no point in charging them again and again and revealing details about how guilty they are. What we need is authorities' head rolling, otherwise nothing will change.

Posted in: Ghosn held $260,000 Rio party billed to Renault-Nissan, documents show See in context

@zones2surf I agree. Neither criminal nor outrageous. I don't understand the point of this article other than trying to paint Ghosn as a luxurious guy. Although $260,000 is not luxurious at all given how high profile people attended that party. It it was $10,000,000 then maybe, but certainly not $260,000.

Posted in: Ghosn ready to repay cost of Versailles wedding: lawyer See in context

There was no bill, so Renault wasn't charged. What's the problem again? It hurt their egos?

All the allegations thrown at him, he has a perfectly logical explanation. Crooked or not, he is way above anybody's league, especially Japan.

The only plausible charge for him is the one he did in 2008, and even that needed all the technicalities Japan can find. He is not powerful, it's just that the Nissan oyaji's are too weak. No one else there should run Nissan. Shareholders should run away.
