"Arrested U.S. Toyota exec asked father to mail painkiller to Japan

TOKYO (Kyodo) -- An American executive at Toyota Motor Corp. suspected of illegally importing a painkiller considered a narcotic in Japan has told police she asked her father to make the shipment, an investigative source said Thursday.

Tokyo police are considering sending officers to the United States to verify the statement by Julie Hamp, 55, and other aspects of their investigation."

Ummm. Not very original for a SD.

This is most " regretable" but I'm sure they will " sincerely reflect on the situation", "collect all relevant information swiftly " and "take appropriate action speedily ", "to avoid public confusion" - "we will consider forming an expert panel".

The template for all guilty incidents in the archipelago.

@mh: Japan is breaking its a$$ to be 'global' and more 'international'. This is one way to achieve that. Bet that Mr A is peeved cause he had to move of his prepared script. Welcome to the 21st century.
