It also expressed its intention to pick someone from Renault to succeed Ghosn as chairman of Nissan, according to the sources.
Wow! I dunno how they are gonna feel about this. However, the reality is, if this deal doesn’t go through, Nissan is finished. These stone-headed protectionistic Kapanese businessmen really need to wake up. It was they who ran Nissan into the ground in the first place and if it was not for Ghosn and Renault’s support Nissan would have been history years ago.

@smithinjapan - Hope this woman rots in prison for life
Shouldn’t blame the victim mate. The ones who should behind bars are the ones who created such a pathetic support and education system for single mothers. I’m actually a bit astonished she wasn’t breast feeding them at two months old. I understand that some women cannot, of course.

This stalemate has been going on for decades and I see no resolution because neither side will compromise. It kind of reminds me of that scene in Finding Nemo where the seagulls are competing for a crab, “It’s mine! It’s mine! it’s mine........”

appoint at least one independent board member in order to ensure proper corporate governance, a government panel recommend
Id like to see this done in the government as well.

Perhaps they should be changing the scheduling of their workers so they are not so stressed out they fill themselves with alcohol every chance they get? There seems to be a lot of undiagnosed alcoholism in Japan. I often see men on the train drinking a 500ml can of ‘super strong’ chu-hi on their way to work in the mornings.

@Semperfi - Ghosn could face embezzlement charges
Embezzlement charges? If there was evidence of him actually ‘embezzling’ money it would already have been revealed.

Yushin because he let their pet rabbit out of the house despite promising not to do so
He beat his son to death over a flipping pet rabbit? There’s no doubt in my mind that he had been beating the kid for many years. What a tragic POS he is.

But, if these ‘dubious’ payments were made, shouldn’t those who made the payments be in the cell next to Ghosn?

Merryanne - Well done to Japan! They now finallyhave a better suicide rate than most EU nations. Keep up the good work!
Are you sure about that? Perhaps the over all statistics are compatible, but the youth suicide rate in Japan is still the highest of all the G7 countries. Around 35% of the suicides in this article were under 25 years old. They release these statistics as a good thing, but never show the demographic breakdown.

There was a similar case last year too. The fact that this joker and others can get away with driving without a license for decades doesn’t bode well for the passive policing of the J-cops.

The beginning of the end for Nissan. The company is already unpopular and cutting thousand of jobs is going to make much more unpopular. Bye bye Nissan.

I sincerely doubt the judge is gonna change his stance and grant bail. The evidence against him is not substantial nor concrete. If Ghosn is exonerated after 3/4 of a year in prison we can expect to see some major civil suits launched against Nissan and the J-Gov for his mistreatment. Japan and Nissan have really opened up a can of worms with his arrest, extended detention and unfair treatment. I don’t think they are prepared for the repercussions if their case fails.

The figure was calculated under a new method with more samples.
Intnink they mean the figure is fudged and padded in a new method. How is it even possible to calculate this number? If it is calculated on duty free goods only it would give a more accurate account, but most of this is just a padded guess.

He kind of has a pretty good point. A few of the posts above put China and South Korea in the same boat as Japan. Perhaps, if the Japanese historians and politicians weren’t downplaying and denying the atrocities committed by Japan against these countries they would be prepared to let it go.

These kinds of temps in Australia are not unusual. They unpleasant, but not unusual. Some places have recorded record high temps, but records only go back a hundred years or so. There is nothing to say this has anything to do with global climate change.

I’ve often wondered about the health of these nail artists and women who have their nails dressed regularly. The fumes from the polyurethane and epoxy finishes are quite toxic anc carcinogenic. I’ve seen a few wearing paper masks and one or two wearing better charcoal masks, but I never see the customers wearing anything. They should be wearing rebreather masks to remove the toxic fumes. Then, you have all these women’s hands being exposed to direct UV light to cure the lacquers. That cannot be good for you.

Quite the entrepreneur if you ask me. He’s doing his fellow countrymen a favor by helping them avoid Japan’s taxes and remittance fees. I used to post cash back home as gifts when the exchange rate was better and when I had disposable income. There’s much disposable income for anybody anymore. Thank you Abenomics.
