Posted in: Japan confirms 1st domestic case of coronavirus infection See in context

Australian scientist have successfully copied the virus, the Chinese also did but they didn't share it with WHO.

this is a great break through as it helps other laboratories around the world develop a vaccine

also Dr Catton said "SARS we know had a death rate — a mortality rate — of about 10 per cent. This [coronavirus] appears to be 3 per cent; my personal opinion is it will turn out to be lower than that," .

so it presently not as lethal as SARS and no where near Ebola

Posted in: Japan should ban confiscation of foreign employees' passports, lawyer says See in context

 My hunch is she found another employer offering a higher pay so she wants her docs and passports which is unfair to her sponsor/employer.

why is it unfair, theyre her property not the companies, its a supposed free market , talented workers are in demand, if companies wont offer good wages and conditions to talented workers then they will go to companies that will, in a competitive free market companies have to compete on price and services for their products just like they have to on their staff. Companies that hold a persons passport , documents are effectively holding a ransom on these worker heads. You will work for us at our price and you cant be taken by another company aka slave worker

Posted in: Japanese prosecutors hit back at Ghosn's '8 hours of questions' claim See in context

Imagine if YOU were the victim of a crime who made an arrest. I don't think you'll appreciate it if the police let the suspect go.

and imagine if the suspect is not guilty of the crime and imagine if the suspect is one of your family members would you appreciate that the police keeping them detained indefinitely until they confess for a crime they didn't commit!?

two sides to every story, and it remains a story until there is proof and a declaration by a judge/jury that the suspect is guilty. sending somebody to jail isnt the prosecutors right, its their job to prove beyond reasonable doubt they are guilty of the crime and imprisoning them is justified.

People bitch about Japan's Justice system while appealing human rights of a law breaker and extolling the big leach.

People complain about Japans hostage justice, while others complain that Ghosn is a law breaker even though they have no evidence he has broken the law as they get their evidence from the J media all the while Ghosn hasn't even been found guilty of any crimes yet, there fixed that for you

The moral values must have changed a lot in today's world.

yes they have most 1st world democratic nations respect basic human rights and the presumption of innocence until irrefutable proof is shown to have that person proven guilty in a court of law, unfortunately some countries prefer hostage justice to force confessions from people either rightly or wrongly

If he was Japanese, this would not have been an issue. And we all know the Japanese legal system says Guilty until proven innocent and time is already spent in jail.

even the justice minister said, that Ghosn should come back to Japan and prove his innocence, she retracted that remark later, the prosecutors legal mindset is clear, your guilty until you show us proof your innocent something you'd expect from a communist or dictatorship country.

eg Mr X we believe you murdered this lady as we found your fingerprints in her apartment.

Mr X of course she was my mistress,

Show us proof you didn't murder her

I cant , the day she was murdered i was home alone i have no alibi.

Ok then your guilty then you can go to jail, we dont need to prove your murdered her as this is Japan

There are so many brainwashers who simply believe Ghosn's comments.

so many brainwashed into believing all the leaked information in the J media, the question isn't whether Ghost is guilty or not the question is how the J prosecutors go about obtaining the information, if they've got all this so called irrefutable proof that their evidence is bullet proof then why the need to constantly detain Ghosn why the need to push back the trial date another year! They should be able to get a guilty verdict easily with all this so called evidence, but now theyve got nothing. Hold onto that butthurt, the Ghosn movie and book deal will be coming soon for all the world to see. lol

Of course black people can have British nationality. You aren't satisfied with that though.

A black person born and raised in Britain and who has known only British culture is just as British as any white person of similar upbringing. If you want to talk about ethnicity then if you go back a about 70000 years all humans migrated from Africa and where black. DNA evidence is proof of that

Came back and not only became the President but injecting steroids and Hulked the economy.

and just like steroids you pay for the consequences of it later, being ballooning debt and a stock market slump or crash in the future, stocks are already over inflated with the economic roids stop using them and you deflate really quickly

a guy who had a company called Fraud Inc. that he ran into the ground, who the foreign minister of Ukraine said is a liar. The farce continues.

meanwhile back to reality 6 of Trumps associates have been convicted and sent to prison, and his lawyer Giuliani is currently being investigated for multiple illegal acts. Yes I agree the farce continues

Posted in: Court defers ruling on fatal car accident after driver's remarks See in context

The other driver was likely going much faster than she expected, leading to her error of judgement. The fatal accident was further down the chain, where speed would still have been a factor.

doesn't matter if the other driver is speeding or not, and it would be almost very difficult to judge their speed after the fact even if it was a factor

it was her error in judgement that cause the crash. if your unsure of the speed of on coming traffic and have any doubt if you can make the turn then you wait until all vehicles have passed.

Posted in: 11 U.S. troops injured in last week's Iran attack on Iraq base See in context

All of Trumps making, thought he could assassinate a Iran general and not have any consequences.

Im certainly no fan of Iran but they have far more strike capabilities with their missiles than Iraq or Syria, AMerica is headed for a war that'll make Afghanistan look like a picnic, Russia will never allow the US to control Iran , Trump has effectively gifted Syria to Putin

Because Ghosn has been attacking Japan and Nissan thru the press, Japan and Nissan are simply punching back. That's why.

what do you think they've been doing to Ghosn for the last year, hold on to your hat Ghosn has book and movie deal coming soon, then Japan can scream injustice all they like, karma is a biatch

 I don't think taxpayer money should be going to countries helping to secretly fatten the pockets of politicians.

40million + in taxpayer funded trips to Trumps own golf courses and you worried about politicians fattening their pockets, another law broken by Trump and still the GOP point fingers

The USA is supposed withhold money to corrupt countries-

Wrong that's is congress job, money appropriated by congress cannot be legally withheld without congress approval, Trump clearly broke the law as stipulated in the constitution. If the GOP think they have irrefutable evidence about Bidens guilt bring it before congress see if the evidence holds up to the scrutiny, goodluck. lol

Posted in: Estranged Australian husband freed after trespassing to find his children See in context

custodial issues in divorce actions always are biased towards the ex-wife. Without Joint Custody it would be a slaughter, and that has nothing to do with nationalties. I speak from personal experience. So this is deeper than just another simple J-bashing topic.

custody is normally given to the parent that has the most time to care for the children , which is nearly always the mother, while the father who is normally the higher money earner has to provide monetary support to the ex and kids in most cases as long as both parents are mentally stable joint custody is awarded.

In Japan there is no joint custody period, if mother doesn't want the father to see them regardless if shes telling the truth or not the courts / police will support her.

Once a woman stick her hooks inside a man, it over, lots of Japanese women get involved with western men out of curiosity ,because they probably not had an emotional intimate relationship with a man an think a western man can fulfill that need, but are disappointed

same could be said for any men including Japanese.

Posted in: Estranged Australian husband freed after trespassing to find his children See in context

*In fact, nearly all of the people I know who have been shifted by the lack of joint-custody in Japan are Japanese. They are the ones the people who suffer the miscarriage of justice in Japan. Because they are 99% of the population.**

and just imagine if all those J fathers had the nads to get up and protest in the 1000s of the injustice the law does to them, maybe the law would change then.

Additionally I assume it will get some kind of IP check? Anyway, trial should start from 1st of March, then we'll know more.

just a tip dont go to NHK site to check,once they have your IP they will have an excuse to charge you at a future date should they decide to go to court, best to use a proxy server in another country or a VPN if your curious

Another reason why China is coming to the table to do a deal.

phase 1 of a deal that has no actual enforcement , trumps the one that desperate for and foreign policy win before the election, nearly 3 yrs into that easy to win trade war, meanwhile US farmers are going bankrupt. Chinas now buying its farm products from cheaper countries like Argentina, Brazil

Posted in: Ghosn seeks retirement benefit from Renault See in context

He might have (theoretically) had a case on the financial misconduct charges. He **absolutely doesn't have one on fleeing the country.**

something he clearly stated in his press conference. since Japan cant do anything about the fleeing part maybe they can file a suit if Lebanon against Ghosn. fortunately Lebanon doesn't require you to be in detention for 23 days to prove your innocence
