He will get a slap on the wrist and a fine at most, age of consent is 13 is it not?
Unless he tricked forced or confused her not gonna get a heavy punishment, and on the basis she was on a dating app any half decent lawyer will get him off.
Morally shocking but unless i am mistaken legally hes pretty safe

To the issue nothing, to the comments speculating on her age when he got her pregnant everything.

The Japan news states he is not the father of the children so whilst still disturbing he did not get her pregnant, based on the age of youngest child it would appear she was pregnant with someone elses child when she married him.

Better education and choices around protection would be very useful.
The father of this child unless was unfortunate his protection split or she lied about her own contraception should be on the chopping board for this also.
Despicable behaviour from both

Carrying a child and still working in the sex industry?
In such a image concscious country amazes me the brothel did not kick her to the kerb or was she not showing much.?
Serious reforms are needed for this, be it baby hatches reduced abortion costs or better support all round for women in this postion.
As Hiro mentioned having seen labour first hand it amazes me they can get up and carry on afterwards with no medical care

Its borderline perverse this is categorized as entertianment news around the world.
It should be a serious case about serious issues of domestic violence.
Sad all round that the two of them and the media have turned it into some freak show.
Maybe im getting old before my time.

Possible could get even worse cost of living crisis in the UK rising Electric and Gas prices will be interesting just how many will be forced to drop it and other such services.

Agree with the above why so easily admit to so many offences hoping the honesty gets a reduced sentence?
Must admit my work has been stressful recently not a way i thought of trying to relieve it different strokes and all that.

Would love to know the numbers behind the decision making.
I had a place in the Osaka Marathon just last Sunday that was cancelled to general runners, odd Tokyo could go ahead with similar numbers.
Political to have the capital as the first? Because the big star Kipchoge had committed to Tokyo?
Guess we will never know.

Unbelievable even before the invasion someone would buy a putin chocolate bar or tshirt.
But that said i remember village vanguard selling a tshirt mocked up as the killers band that had Osama Hitler Bush Saddam and a couple of others on it so maybe not so unbelieveable after all.

Seems odd he brought so many violent weapons with him but stabbed himself without using them.

Quite the coup to get the best Marathoner in the world, wonder after the Osaka Marathon was cancelled this week if Tokyo will survive the chop.

Dear bar and Restaurant owners please close early to stop the spread.
Just ignore the mass gatherings on the trains and also the Tokyo Marathon running by outside.
Whilst personally happy it looks likely to go ahead got to feel for those affected by these actions.

As someone who rarely eats out or goes out drinking the state of emergency has not imposed any change on me at all.
This is not a boast but how absurd these quasi emergencies are.

Interesting that To@yo already in so called emergency and Osaka have applied foremergency but neither have cancelled upcoming large scale Marathons, and the return of Sporting leagues.
Whilst personally happy attendances came come normally to J league games, hard to justify an emergency whilst holding such large gatherings.

Could even the greatest slapstick comedians come up with something so utterly ridiculous

Full capactiy events can take place with anti virus measures but a bar/restaurant needs to close early.
I would be livid if my livelihood depended on owning such am establishment.

Having chosen to live in Japan i never like to overly bash my host, but these quasi emergency things are ridiculous.

Both Tokyo and Osaka marthons due next month.
The return of the J league presumably with a spectator cap, the numbers are going to surge.
What ever vaccine opinion you have we need to start to live with this, this in out attitude just grinds people down.

@savethegaijin thats terrible for you, similar to you i did mytime cos i had to, but it would probably need to be someone dieing to make me travel again after going through it.
I was lucky was with the little one to keep me company
Best wishes to you and your family, get home soon.

Savethegaijin, sorry i wasnt clear meant a quick check on the gov website still shows its 6 days at hotel 8 at home maybe cos i came from England and was right at end of December.
You mentioned youd been in a hotel for 2 weeks thought thst seemed harsh.
Agree re the bento it was a nightmare for my little one even worse,
Sorry to hear of your stomach surgery its inhumane to keep you there hopefully youl be free soon well relativley free at home.

"The NPA has asked the public to phone the help hotline (#9110) for mundane requests that would otherwise deter police from responding to accidents and disasters."
If one was to call #9110 because computer wouldnt work would they actually receive help, surely you call the customer support as with vending machine.

Yes he will arrive in a private or first class plane and not exactly mixing with the public, but decisions like this just add fuel to peoples anger.
You cant make up a medical exemption either he has a medical reason not to be vaccinated or he doesnt, the weird semantics they use help no one, and surely if he had a genuine medical reason, the whole media sideshow about if he would attend was a huge waste of time.

A step in the right direction, and from the article seems a possible positive outcome for all involved moving forward.
