Japanese people all know the justice system is unfair for Japanese people.

But there is one prevailing mistake intentionally spread. The prosecuter's office doesn't prosecute a case if evidence is not enough or the crime is considered as minor.

The rate varies depending on type of the crime. 10 to 90% cases are not prosecuted in Japan. Saikawa’s case falls in here. He was investigated and lost his job but was not prosecuted in the end.

Once the case is prosecuted, which means the suspect is already very doubtful with enough evidence, 99% of people are going to be guilty. This 99% is what we are talking about. So, actually it's not 99% as people may think. Actually the rate is around 60% on average.
