Posted in: Japanese prosecutors hit back at Ghosn's '8 hours of questions' claim See in context

Just admit it already. Japanese prosecutors are useless without the confessions. 280 hours of interrogation and nothing? So incompetent.

Posted in: Ghosn's aide Kelly stands high chance of acquittal: ex-prosecutor See in context


The scenario I see playing out is that they will 'convince' Kelly to admit he made a mistake threatening a lengthy trial and then the court will charge him but give him a suspended sentence.

But would he rather have his freedom or keep his integrity? If he admits to anything, the prosecutors win and that's not something we want.

There's a chance that he will be acquitted and the prosecutors will claim "Hey, look. It's not all win for us. We lose sometimes, so our Justice system is fair."

Posted in: 'Hostage justice?' Japan fights back with an internet FAQ See in context

@Kazuaki Shimazaki Today 04:31 pm JST

Believe it or not, it is not necessarily as easy as laymen think to get "clarifying" CCTV footage, even if you are the police.

What a ridiculous excuse! A CCTV footage is the most accurate and logical piece of evidence that any investigative body should acquire ASAP. If Japan Police or Prosecutors have difficulties retrieving something as simple as a CCTV, then we have to question their ability to serve justice.

Hardly. The German government had no choice after the EPA exposed them. No more exports to the United States otherwise.

At least they admitted fault. Unlike other governments I know. *wink

So basically:

Q: "Is it fair to call it hostage justice system?"

A: "It's not fair, so therefore it's not fair."

Posted in: Ghosn lawyers rebut new Nissan claims against fugitive exec See in context

Yokohama-based Nissan says Ghosn “single-handedly" decided on his compensation.

Nissan and Tokyo Prosecutors can't bring Ghosn down. He "single-handedly" run Nissan and the alliance which consist of 180,000+ people, which obviously now that he's gone the alliance is collapsing esp. financially.

Only thing Tokyo Prosecutors "can" do is illegally leak information to the media and claim that Ghosn's statements are one-sided.

I would understand if he just trashed the Chinese government. But all Chinese people? That's pretty stupid. There are many Chinese students/staff in that school and many of them delivers good research, even better that most of their Japanese counterparts. He doesn't deserve that 特任教授 position.

Posted in: Ghosn's Japan lawyer: Questioning averaged 7 hours a day See in context

What could they have possibly ask him for 8 hours a day? They certainly would have to repeat themselves a hundred times just to fill that 8 hours. I really feel sorry for the Tokyo prosecutors. I bet it’s really difficult to be proud of themselves if that’s their job description.

Posted in: Ghosn's Japan lawyer: Questioning averaged 7 hours a day See in context

I feel bad for the prosecutor who had to interrogate him. Imagine asking the same thing 7 hours a day for 100 days and convincing yourself you're a worthy person.

They should blame whoever pulled the strings on this. They could have handled this internally but decided to go all out public, thanks to that one egotistic backstabbing ojiisan.

Posted in: Ghosn tells Japanese media he has plenty of documents to prove innocence See in context

@Kazuaki, the renumeration is not a done deal, hence difficult to use it to charge anybody. If ever it is finalized, it will be in the financial reports but it is not. As with future expenses, you cannot claim future profits either. If you follow your own logic, if ever the expenditure which was not paid was cancelled, does that mean the shareholder won't be happy?

Posted in: Japan asks Interpol to issue red notice for Ghosn's wife See in context


Yes, confession is best because that’s how Japan Injustice system is designed.

Tokyo prosecutors will win this one on technicality, but that’s all they can get. It’s easy to nitpick the evidence to try to prove their point, but on a broader sense they already lost.

So they finally admit it - in Japan you really have to prove your innocence. No more argument there.

Posted in: Ghosn met Lebanese president after fleeing Japan See in context

Lebanon, and probably the rest of the world, treating Japan’s “justice” system as if it was North Korea must have hurt a lot.

Posted in: Ghosn's escape leaves Japan red-faced See in context

Was the detention only because he is a flight risk? What about no contact to the outside world? Not even his wife? If the prosecutors can’t get a conviction based on evidences they can gather while a fugitive is at large, then they are inarguably incompetent and need to go back to school.

Posted in: Ghosn's escape leaves Japan red-faced See in context

Good luck defending the Japanese justice system. There’s one thing you have not considered - Japan strips a suspected person of his basic human rights. Keyword is suspected. Ghosn’s alleged crime is financial misconduct, he is not a threat to society and no reason for his 100-day detention. I think what’s difficult for J-proc and their defenders is using logic. They can’t decide on a case-to-case basis and just follow some archaic rules written in their rule books.

This is what Japanese consumers expect to see.

I don't know about that. Who decides what to expect on a website? Existing websites? This is more of a "this website does this so we should, too."

Posted in: Toyota employee's suicide caused by workplace harassment See in context

will further work to prevent work-related accidents and promote employees' health management

More like "we will create a system such that death by a worker will never implicate the company in any way".

They will most probably just make their workers sign a monthly sheet that will report if they were harassed or not, and obviously the workers will just say no. Just like they do in my university.

People need to care more. That will mostly solve every of our relationship problems.

Japan is doing the same thing over and over for decades. Why would we expect something to change? We need more progressive leaders who aren't afraid to fail, like Softbank's Son.

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.

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.
