. Carlos is feeling free and normal now, and bringing the pain to the bullies
About damn time. Next few weeks should be glorious. The panic from the minister that included the freudian slip about coming back and proving innocence goes to show the panic mode the establishment is in. The days of abuse of law going unnoticed are now a thing of the past.

Trade deal? More like brown nosing deal to avoid automobile tariffs. Funny nothing is mentioned as to how the coddled voters this deal is screwing over are going to be compensated with tax payers hard earned cash. Funny that.

Actually, no longer true. Starting Heisei 20, the limit in principle is 8 hours and night-time interrogation not allowed.
Stupendous improvement. Doesn't negate the fact that an individual is still being treated guilty until proven innocent

Give this guy a chance and see how much evidence he can destroy
Nice spin there. Every single individual charged with a crime is innocent untill proven guilty. Which happens to be reverse in japan. Carlos homes were raised while he was locked up and still nothing substantial came out of it. If there's no smoke, there's no fire. Can't wait for him to spill all the juicy details in the new year. It's about time some hard truths cane out.

Nhk, the government mouthpiece was suspiciously silent about this huge news at 6pm. I'm thinking the crisis management meeting is taking longer than expected?

And next time foreigners complain about the lack of bail in Japan etc., they’ll have you to personally thank, Ghosn!
So instead of following international norms of law, use an escaped convict as a scapegoat to justify not to? Mkay.

Wasnt he under watch 24/7?
Are the myriad of cctv cameras actually working?
How did he slip airport security?
How does a private jet leave japan airspace with no accountability for who's on board?
No matter what excuse the incompetent leadership comes up with, these are not delightful optics.

Is this a case of that classic oxymoron, 'peace through war'? I don't get the willful ignorance. japan has no choice in the matter. When the master beckons, must follow, no questions asked.

This is what happens when competent leadership is replaced by yes men. If this information was not reviewed and then released, then the entire department in charge must answer for it, however if it was reviewed, then this becomes a willful act to start war. A much more dire act.

The rara crowd is again unsurprisingly absent. This clearly amounts to a crime. Where's the UN environmental protection agencies? Where are the international watchdogs that are supposed to blow the whistle on this blatant murder attempt? And how do we know the ever so secretive government hasn't already dumped it in the air and water?

Yikes!! Hasn't it dawned on them that the ship's already sailed? Called this ages ago. Now sit back and watch the decline precipitated by one of the worst prime ministers in known history.

Pretty much yeah.

A Cherry Blossom event is small cakes in the world of politics
So wasting tax payers hard earned cash for personal gain is cool in your book?
When are the Japanese people going to wake up and drain the swamp?
When pigs learn how to fly planes and drive cars.

There are a myriad of korean related articles on this rug one would assume it's Korea today!! It's a very morbid obsession that I can't quite put my finger on. Anything on the sakura/shreddergate corruption? Nah. Just keep piping on about korea. Ignore the blatant corruption in the ldp. For clearly, if ignored, something can't exist. Right?

'At the time of the war, I was in my 20's and single, and I didn't understand,'' he said, growing more emotional. ''But when I had two daughters myself, I started to realize what I had done.''
At that point, Mr. Ukita's voice choked and blinked, and tears welled in his eyes. He would not say exactly what his role had been, but in a tremulous voice he said that Japan should compensate the women for the injuries done to them.
A shocking revelation from an actual perpetrator of the abuse. And yet, the duck, dodging and weaving will continue unabated because some people just can't handle the truth.

Yes. Quit whining about the chances of getting cancer in the future. It's all about the olympics and the glory of abe. Damn those radiation meters!!!

Its a beauty watching the endemic corruption coming to the surface. Time for the Japanese populace to make a choice.

As should all other countries given the radiation hot spots just reported by green peace. The naysayers should lead by example and consume both the food and water from there. Simple.

They just do it because that's what they do - they've grown up seeing others doing it, and they do it naturally without thought.
Well, it's illegal to enforce now as all archaic practices should be.

The 'I could care less' attitude of the populace is going to sting in the near future.

To think that there are still fools who want Japan to retain outdated Article 9. Throw out Article 9, make Japan strong enough to deal with any threat in the region
These people you're grouping together as fools include the Japanese populace that isn't actually demanding for any changes to article 9.

Whatever happened to freedom of speech?
Are you one of those that would use a slur against a person of colour and claim freedom of expression? Asking for a friend.

Given that China's never been involved in any regime change wars, I believe this statement is warranted.

Its pretty simple really. Let in various radiation testing organisations to confirm the claim. If all's good, dump away. But knowing the secretive nature of the ldp regime, that's a pipedream.
