No testing...no cases!

Posted in: Bach says canceling Tokyo Olympics not an option despite COVID See in context

Bach and Coates have much to answer for. They only care about money and their personal profile. Needless to say both men are now pariahs and the IOC will live in ignominy.

Posted in: Criticism keeps swirling over Tokyo Olympic chief's sexist comments See in context

Ha Ha...I am surprised that anyone is surprised. He is living proof (well for a little longer) that Japan is incapable of running a school raffle. If anything, the level of female representation on boards and in government has declined over the past decade...and the women have let it happen. Most Japanese politicians, especially the retired type are straight up morons and belong back in the Tokugawa period (with apologies to Ieyasu). There is no way forward until gender quotas are introduced to rid the upper echelons of inbred misogynist dross.

Dejima could be re-activated as a quarantine station...like it was in the Tokugawa period.

The Prosecutors office just looks more stupid every time they burst into print. What a bunch of muppets.

Saikawa is still on the board of Nissan. he was the one that set Ghosn up. Tell me when did Ghosn get a chance to do a plea bargain and bow in front of the fawning Japanese media? Saikawa had no intent? No intent to get rid of Ghosn by foul means? No intent to thwart the intent of Renault? Give me a break and spare me the attempt at trying to make Saikawa an honourable person. Your attempt at a logical argument fails dismally. maybe you work for the prosecutors office.

Posted in: Ghosn used company money for private events: Nissan report See in context

Saikawa is still on the board of Nissan and Hari Nada is still on the payroll. Is this some kind of witness protection program?

Posted in: Ghosn's escape leaves Japan red-faced See in context

Once the Japanese Prosecutor was lured into charging Ghosn by that rat Saikawa, they were snookered. They tried to keep Ghosn inside the tent and stop him pissing out. Now he is outside the tent, he will be seriously pissing on the tent. The Japanese deserve all they get from this. It is not about whether Ghosn abused his position anymore. It is about Japanese corporate corruption and the lengths the system will go to to save face. Ghosn's biggest failing was to save Nissan and to try and turn it into a multinational juggernaut. Well now that he is gone, Nissan is free to self-destruct again, without foreign interference. No foreigner will ever again wish to be a senior executive of a Japanese company.

Peter Ellis. Your comments are fanciful at best. Not sure how much you know about Japan and the criminal justice system here but it is a very very different creature to the one you may know very well. It will likely be revealed that he walked straight through immigration at Narita Airport and took the late Saturday night Turkish Airlines flight to Istanbul, no doubt in disguise and travelling on someone else's passport. How many blind eyes might have been turned is anyone's guess but face-saving is a national pastime that goes all the way to the top.
