NO.249 Carlos Ghosn on bail leaves Japan and enters Lebanon

Carlos Ghosn leaving Japan on bail

Former Nissan's Carlos Ghosn has been arrested and indicted by the Tokyo District Public Prosecutors' Office for violating the Financial Securities and Exchange Law. He was further prosecuted for extrajudicial charges.
He was released on bail, paying 1.3 billion yen on bail.

He left Japan and entered Lebanon in breach of bail conditions.
He was internationally arranged by the International Criminal Police Organization (ICPO).
Neither the Lebanese government nor the French government has stated that they have no intention of delivering him to Japan.

His lawyer is undertaken by renowned lawyer Hironaka. I hope that Hironaka will take on his defense until Gone cancels his defense request.

I hope that in the course of his trial, I will make the following a little clearer:

My problem awareness.

I have a suspicion that the Japanese trial may be a demon trial, and I remember a chilling fear.
It began with a Supreme Court decision in December 2018 in an NHK subscription contract.

Article 010: Maybe the Supreme Court of Japan ignores Article 97 of the Japanese Constitution?… Let's assume the possibility that Kamikaze will be determined to be constitutional under the current Japanese Constitution. In the NHK subscription contract, the broadcasting law was ruled constitutional.

NHK rejected subscribers were in a civil trial with NHK, arguing that "the Broadcast Law violates the Constitution of Japan, which guarantees freedom of contract."
The philosophy of the broadcasting law is as follows.
"Japanese citizens have the right to be aware of unbiased information that is not biased by the assertion of a particular individual or group. The mission of public broadcasting is to broadcast this unbiased information. The cost of doing so must be borne fairly by the Japanese people, and for that reason, those who have purchased a television must sign a subscription agreement with NHK. "

The Japanese Supreme Court has ruled that the Broadcasting Law is constitutional.
When I heard this news, I thought that Japanese democracy had committed suicide.
The Japanese Supreme Court has ruled that the Broadcasting Law is constitutional, based on the philosophy of the Broadcasting Law. The judgment of the Supreme Court will be the precedent of a later Japanese trial.
As a result of this Supreme Court ruling, no matter what law the Japanese government enacts in the future, the court will rule that it is constitutional.
Suppose the Japanese government has enacted a law ordering Japanese people to commit suicide bombing such as Kamikaze. The Japanese Supreme Court will rule this Kamikaze bill constitutional in light of the current Japanese Constitution.
Such a thing was done in the Imperial Japanese Empire at the time of World War II.

The Japanese Supreme Court has denied the basic human rights of Japanese people. The Japanese Supreme Court did not allow Japanese people the right to freedom of thought. The Japanese Supreme Court has ordered the Japanese people to obey the principles of the broadcasting law set by the Japanese government.

The following is an excerpt of the Supreme Court decision.

"{2} Article 64, Paragraph 1 of the Broadcasting Act concludes a contract for the reception of the Japan Broadcasting Corporation's broadcasts, which is necessary for proper and fair collection of reception fees for the purposes of the Japan Broadcasting Corporation. Do not violate Articles 13, 21, and 29 of the Constitution as a provision for enforcement. "

After reading this sentence, most people will not understand why the Broadcasting Law is constitutional.
I'll explain.
Article 13 of the Japanese Constitution stipulates that Japanese citizens must not claim rights that are against public welfare. The Supreme Court of Japan has ruled that what the provisions of the Broadcasting Law achieve is public welfare. The Japanese Supreme Court ruled that it was not allowed to assert freedom of contract in violation of the public welfare broadcasting law.

Article 97 of the Japanese Constitution guarantees the Japanese people basic human rights that are universal to all humankind. If the Supreme Court respected Article 97 of the Constitution of Japan, the Supreme Court would have ruled that the Broadcast Law was unconstitutional.
However, the Japanese Supreme Court ruled that it ignored Article 97 of the Japanese Constitution. This ruling has become the precedent for Japan's future trial.

What I expect from the Carlos Ghosn trial.

Since the Supreme Court is the precedent, it should be stated so that the reasons for the decision can be clearly understood by anyone.
The Japanese Supreme Court may have been keeping people from understanding.

The Japanese interrogation may actually be an interrogation by the devil's secret police.
Ghosne pointed out that the lawyer was not allowed to be present during the investigation. Unless he pointed out, none of the Japanese people were aware of this.
Interrogation by Japanese police may be equivalent to interrogation by torture by secret police. The only way for the suspect to be interrogated to be free of the pain of the interrogation is to sign the prosecutor's written report as true and signed.
Many of the interviewees tell their stories.

Many police interrogations are outside the judicial specialty. It will be difficult to respond properly in the trauma of detention in the cell. You will need assistance from the presence of a lawyer.
In countries other than Japan, even with common sense, the knowledge of Japanese people has been hindered.

The news of the interrogation of Ghosn appeared to have spread to countries around the world. Media from around the world seemed surprised by the violation of human rights in the interrogation of Japan.
Because of the investigation into Ghosn, media from around the world were interested, and we, who live in Japan, also learned a lot for the first time.

Ghosn had the power to escape from an investigation into abuses on his own. However, many Japanese people are powerless.
By common sense, Ghosn would have benefited from the trial, following the direction of the court. However, he chose to escape human rights violations at the expense of disadvantage.

Although Ghosn was able to escape from the suffering of human rights abuses on his own, many powerless people would not have been able to escape human rights violations. We may have forgotten such powerless people until now.
And I don't think anyone knows when or when such a human rights violation will occur.
With Ghosn leaving Japan and entering Lebanon, the problem became an international problem.
With the Ghosn trial becoming an international issue, I think it is more likely that things will become more apparent. I have hope for that.
