Posted in: Uber Japan referred to prosecutors over hiring of overstayers See in context

There is large number of overstayers with status ex-trainees that become overstayers along with students. That's happened for years.

https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2016/10/31/national/record-5803-foreign-trainees-went-awol-japan-last-year/

Perhaps because uber does everything online, yes there is flaw with that. 

Is uber the only one who hire these people? No, lot of manufacturers that does everything physically and require for these workers to show up everyday they do this.

Car manufacturers and its supplier, hire overstayers.

Food factory

Also Constructions

 worked construction at one point for a large Japan construction company.

Of the group I was working with there were 2 Japanese supervisors 10 workers all foreigners and only I had a valid Visa.

And I guarantee everyone here knows this construction company.

However so far Uber that get this kind of treatment, not those car manufacturers, food factory and construction. Of course many others.

Posted in: 97% of surveyed major Japanese firms plan workplace COVID vaccinations See in context

The survey covered 127 major companies, of which 116 responded. Currently, entities planning to vaccinate more than 1,000 people are allowed to give on-site inoculations in Japan, where 99.7 percent of firms are small or medium-sized and one of the biggest challenges would be to address immunization disparities.

This kind of innoculation will use Moderna vaccine, however what likely to happen is these company "force" their employee to do innoculation Moderna vaccines. It will limit freedom to choose which vaccine people can get, like Pfizer or Moderna. Even if it will voluntarily their peers or manager will give them pressure to do inoculation in their company.

Japan creates its first law requiring permits for crossbow possession

In Japan you need to have registration for your bicycle, it just matter of time you'll be required to have crossbow possession.

That 37 being carried by some fractions of millions from whole Japan's citizen, even after it's being regulated there will other means to carry violence crime.

@kennyG

And If French justice is nearly perfect compared to Japan as some other posters say, There's no reason whatsoever Ghosn needs to reject showing up at French Court when he gets officially charged.

His Lebanon passport already being handed over to official so he couldn't go anywhere now. Also if he go outside Lebanon even in good faith to appear in French court. During travel from Lebanon to French, he will be risked being extradited back to Japan. Even in French, is there any guarantee that French government won't extradite him to Japan.

@Hiro

So what's the point of even questioning him anyway? Is not like he would tell them anything that would put him in a disadvantage. Is merely asking questions. What a waste of time. Of course he is happy and satisfied. He got away and is living the good life in Beirut and nobody can touch him.

Because in modern world suspect is presumed innocent and has right to defend and tell their side of defense. Not all country act like Japan where you are being suspect automatically you are guilty already despite all facts shows the opposites. This lead to coerced confession become common thing in Japan.

French already finished proper legal procedure by questioning with him so now it's Japanese turn if Japanese really have substantial question unanswered. Not only by asking him to confess repeatedly without his lawyer presence.

Whatever result he will get from French at least it will be result of fairer compared Japanese one. Even his Japanese lawyer explain how Japanese hostage justice system works.

http://blog.livedoor.jp/plltakano/archives/65954250.html

Ghosn’s defense team said they have “already identified serious procedural irregularities in the French dossiers." The defense team said “abnormalities, which undermine the judicial process, are the result of the peculiar methods of the Japanese investigation” that was the primary source for building the French cases.

Now he can start to see actual Japanese result of his investigation from that French dossiers. His version of story now can be treated as official version.
