Several comments here have a distinct stench of xenophobia. It does suit very well the long time premeditate deceit of Saikawa, who dares to present himself as a whistleblower while conspicuously benefiting of his information to the authorities. As for the medieval japanese judicial system, it recently found a powerful supporter in France: the CGT, the only communist union labor which survived the cold war era. Banzai!

"presumption of innocence."
Yes, very interesting, as you put it: a political and ethical concept, that certainly deserves to be studied in Japan, in view of joining all over democratic countries... One can always dream of a better world :-)!

nanakandamanda, yes, it did happen once, in a small and remote city, but this was before the violent events of last saturday. It was shown on BFMTV: half a dozen of policemen took off their helmets to express their feelings of sympathy towards... elderly people wearing yellow jackets. Indeed, many retired workers are bitterly angry against Macron's tax policy, which is very hard on retirees (and in the meantime so obviously devoted to the big corporations)...

This guy is a tough number: imagine, after nearly 22 days in the gallows and another 22 days coming? I'm baffled at the ferocious ways of the japanese system. It's really trying to obtain admissions through heavy mistreatments... Shameful.
