Seems Carlos may have been using his time productively by watching tv dramas of A-team, MacGyver & smugglers... will be interesting to hear how it was done, especially if the rumors about hiding in a musical instrument box are true.
That said, I can’t wait until this criminal is brought to justice. What a selfish lying scum who cares nothing for others he has revealed himself to be. No, I don’t care about what he now has to say - his credibility has been destroyed.
Baffles me that there are still those who defend his actions and will inevitably’-‘ this post. Enjoy...

This is a bit like news about Trump...
Those that support him will continue to do so, despite him breaking the law, lying, leaving a mess for others to clean up and yet still continuing to proclaim innocence. He is now a criminal.
For me, he now lacks any credibility he may once have had.

If this is true...
What a scumbag - not only does he break the law but then flees and goes bad mouthing Japan. I hope there is a reward offered and some bounty hunter brings him back. That would be perfect justice!
I also think that there is a bigger story here since he would have been closely watched. Someone was paid off.
This won’t go down well for other foreign suspects on bail. Not that he ever gave a toss about them...
Looking forward to hearing how the press handles this

Painfully obvious that most people posting here are a little jealous that they will never have the chance to go to a high class place like this and resort to bad-mouthing it. Whatever makes you feel happy...

How about he talks directly to them rather than through the media.
Everyone knows this was a complete mess, that the guy and his mother are bad news and that the wedding is not going to happen.
Leave it be, dude and be thankful your daughter didn’t make this huge mistake.

There is a lot that can be said about ticket resales & touts, fanzones, more information in English & other languages, horrendous queues for toilets at Stadiums, etc.

There must be some stipulation in the contract about moving events. Otherwise there would be more uproar about this.
The marathon is the whole reason the Olympics started in the first place! Having it forcefully moved to a different city than the host is really crazy and nonsensical.
The IOC should have looked into it more when the Japan bid said that ‘August is mild and sunny and conducive to athletes performance’.
Anybody who has spent any amount of time in Tokyo in Aug would have agreed to move the whole event to later in the year.

From what I read, he sounds guilty and will be convicted. I am looking forward to seeing the feedback from the trial and ensuing outrage by JT pundits.

That’s at least JPY 16,300,000,000 for this.
As soon as Japanese hear about it, and especially the fact that Japan taxpayers are funding the whole bill (including VIP accommodation), they are indeed outraged.
It’s nice of course to keep some tradition, but there needs to be a reality check as well.

Wild idea - how about asking these foreign dignitaries to pay for their own accommodation?

After a question was raised by a member of the Foreign Press, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said that he didn’t like to comment on individuals but that he could confirm that Carlos Ghosn would not not included in the 550,000.

as they have ignored everyone saying that having Olympics in Aug was a very bad idea, what miracle are they hoping for now with 10 months to go? Very stupid and unfortunately people will suffer from this.

Simple - ban sites like viagogo, make reselling a punishable crime and actually track down offenders. They have the resources to do it.
Tickets for some games being resold for 7x face value.
There should be better registration for tickets and maybe even ID checks.
STOP these criminals!

Ghosn was found guilty and fined. Then again his supporters will read into that anything that they want to. The fact remains - GUILTY.

Hmmm - You cannot use this as a test for what it will be like in the actual Olympics. The marathon will be over 1 month earlier in the year and temperatures/humidity will be much much higher...

Nice to know that they are focusing on the really important issues.... don’t worry about the country debt, lack of pensions, population age, being almost at war with all neighbors, etc, etc... as long as we refer to PM as Abe Shinzo everything will be fine. Taro Aso needs to change his name to Hole Aso...

She may be a class act but her performance is so inconsistent and erratic - she needs a better coach and mentor, especially to stabilize her mentally . Yes it all did collapse after she fired her previous coach - you can see most of the issues are in her head.

Ghosn is accused of under-reporting millions of dollars in income at Nissan and of using company funds for personal expenses -- charges he denies.
That’s the only matter under investigation. It’s not the Japan justice system.
I am still baffled why foreigners think that there is something wrong or sinister going on here - maybe because the Japanese system is stricter than their county or maybe that many of these accounts are fake and/or sponsored by Ghosn. Yes this happens...
Anyways, I am happy to wait this out and see what happens. I’m sure it’s not the last accusation we hear from his lawyers, wife, etc. in reality it’s just a distraction as we wait for the trial.

And he naively thinks that publicly saying this is going to help things?
Is he expecting people to demonstrate and go on strike for his client?
Or maybe does he now realize that most Japanese people (although they may partially agree that the treatment wasn’t ideal) do think that Ghosn is guilty and should go to jail for the crimes?

You mean defense will be last of your worries when you retire and realize that you don’t have enough money to live because of all the money that was wasted on US military spending, Olympics, foreign donations and appeasing Trump.
Japan is in serious trouble because politicians are ignoring the head winds (debt, population, pension, etc) and yet it’s still holding US＄1.4 trillion in US govt debt.
