Posted in: China warns Apple against 'reckless' support of HK protesters See in context

HKI is, was, and always will be part of China. HK is as much a part of China as Texas is part of the US.

Tell that to the Hongkongers. HK people despise Chinese in the same level as the rest of the world. They don't want to associate themselves with the Chinese. They don't even speak the same dialect.

Can you list all the territories that China has "grabbed", so we can compare with other nations.

Taklamakan Desert, Tibet, and the South China Sea.

Typical Japanese way of thinking. Just because he made some mistakes in some of his investments, as any other successful investors in the entire world has done, doesn’t mean he’s going down. Japanese minds don’t understand this. That’s why they don’t take risks and pulls down anyone who stands out - like Son.

If this becomes a thing, there should be a "bounty hunter" hunter, where rogue bounty hunters are caught.

Posted in: Japanese gov't backs Nissan CEO Saikawa's resignation See in context

Although not illegal, the investigation report concluded that it was a "grave" governance issue.

What about "aggravated breach of trust"? Same as what they charged Ghosn.

The resignation proves that corporate governance is working

Really? That fast?

Posted in: 2 court cases highlight paternity leave issue in Japan See in context

In the university (top top top university in Japan) where I'm working, we are now obliged to take at least two days off per year on paper. ON PAPER. We are also now required to submit a time table per month of how long you work that month. This is their way of handling "employee's well being" by legally removing any responsibility from the university instead of "actually caring" for their employees. I mean, it doesn't matter to me because I am not in the general workforce. But the poor staffers in the office... they were left to rot.

Lucky! They have another reason to blame for their downfall instead of admitting they are incompetent oyajis.

Surprise, surprise. Probably had to think very hard to come up with the octopus metaphor. He probably hoped that people will notice how he came up with that brilliant idea. What a clown.

Posted in: Ghosn's lawyer says Tokyo prosecutors lack impartiality See in context

It’s not difficult to guess what the Tokyo prosecutor will say on this. “This is Japan and we have a different definition of Justice. And also common sense.”

I totally agree with the 3rd to the last sentence. How come a detained individual cannot communicate to the outside world, while the prosecutor can willy nilly “leak” information to the media? It’s really a shame to be a prosecutor in Japan.

I'm just glad Nissan is going down. Clearly, the oyaji's can't run a global company like Nissan without Ghosn.

Posted in: Nissan profit nose-dives 57.3% See in context

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.

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)

Posted in: Ghosn leaves detention center; agrees to limit contact with wife See in context

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.
