What about the cosmetic company hiring them illegally? Scott free I assume, right?

I do not know this journalist. But if he is a true investigative one in tough or war place he need to be supported. Truth is the most important thing and need to be promoted.
Comments about the cost to save him - assuming he was doing a journalist job - is just a shame, while he is risking his life for us sipping a cocktail in our sofa.

If they had bulletproof or at least tangible evidences the trial would have already started or a fix date in the near future would have been set.
They are not going to send anything I bet.

If the prosecutor has that strong evidences, why do they fear he could tampered them with, why does it take 1 or 2 or 3 years to go into trial?
All that on top of Nissan giving and supporting the accusation.
Ghosn might not be clean but the prosecutor look very dirty in comparison.

It is believed that he used some wrongful methods to illegally leave the country.
That's a statement, wow!

Most of the comments here are about the Japanese « justice » system.
Unfavorable comments about Ghosn in the West are because they do not know the Japanese « justice » and assume it is as or even fairer than in their own countries.

Except for low cost carriers, all standard airlines sell return tickets.
You can buy as well one-way ticket but it will be more expensive than the return one.
Thus I do not see any gift here.

I do not understand the immunity aspect on that special case but if it applies, the minimum would be that she goes at least under trial in USA for that.

At first, why celebrating wide x-mas in Indonesia?
This is a non-sense commercial stuff.

In most of the countries we save historical constructions regardless of A-bombing or not.
In Japan and Asia in general there is not such a thing.
Not sure if this is a cultural thing or because of more powerful greedy developers.

I recommend you to read a few books from Amelie Nothomb about her life in Japan.
Nothing to do with NGO, a sincere love of Japan but a knife sharp critic of the Japanese male dominant society.

I work in a Japanese company outside of Japan in an international environment.
All of 5 of my Japanese colleagues with young babies have no idea on how to change nappies or prepare a milk bottle.
And the worst, they do not understand why I am surprised.

Fully agree with Reckless. Better nothing than spam-like wishes sent to huge distribution lists.
I can agree with a personalised one sent by e-mail only to one person or to a small group.

Today almost 1 million Hongkongers march peacefully.
There has been no violence at all so far.
Will it be heard by the government? No!
And violent protests will start again. No other choice for the Hongkongers I believe.

The police searched her home in Tokyo last month when she returned after a night out at a club and found 0.19 grams of powder containing MDMA, 0.6 grams of liquid containing LSD and a small piece of paper laced with LSD.
So little stuff.
In a country where you are ostracised if you do not get drunk every evening with your colleagues...
What a farce!

Travelling with kids in japan is crazy.
All the places I have been I was charged per people not per room, i.e. adult 100% and kids 50%. Ending paying a fortune with 3 kids for 5 people in a 15sqm room.
Bullet train is bloody expensive too.
And if you want to eat anything else than ramen or noodle: ouch!
Forget about hotel speaking english, prices rocket to the sky.

46 years in death row? The judges must be very scared to have it carried on, but still not enough to lose face and recognise the total injustice.
Give him break please, regardless of what may have happened!
