“The former head of Nissan-Renault alliance Carlos Ghosn has fled Japan, where he had been held for more than a year and was set to face trial on criminal charges.
The executive reached Lebanon, one of the countries where he has citizenship. It would be hard for Japan to get the celebrity fugitive back, since Beirut has no extradition agreement with Tokyo.

There is no such thing as a fair trail in Japan. Listen closely when I tell you this. Japan has a 99% conviction rate. Most people plead guilty because of this. I don’t know if this man is innocent or guilty but its a fact in Japan you’re always guilty — no ands ifs or buts about it.
