Carlos Ghosn, former Nissan and Renault CEO, has arrived in Beirut
This news article reads like a The Onion parody. Escapes to Beirut because he thinks Japanese legal system is unfair? And to do it in a musical instrument box?

To be fair the Japanese justice system is extremely unfair, they have a conviction rate above 99%, if you are indited you're already guilty, to keep this up they both railroad a lot of innocent people and let a lot of guilty people go free without trial if they're at all worried it won't be a slam dunk.

Ghosn specifically complained about things like 8 hour a day interrogations where he wasn't allowed to have a lawyer present, that would be utterly inexcusable in most other western justice systems.

This. The japanese justice system presumes guilty until proven innocent. It's basically kangaroo court especially if you're non-japanese

Nissan was on the brink of failure before the nissan-renault alliance. Despite Ghosn's lavish spending on himself (the only "crime" the japanese have been able to pin on him), it's almost certain that nissan probably wouldn't exist at all today if he hadn't have come along.

The japanese really don't like when gaijins show up and run their own businesses better than they can. He most likely was targeted.

I don't know if the Japanese justice system is that prejudiced. Knowing Japanese culture, it might just as well be that Japanese prosecutors won't bother with cases where they don't have an almost guaranteed victory.

>when you want to come to the defense of perceived bigotry toward japanese culture but the analyses presented are coherent and correct, more of a criticism of a specific police culture than anything else

The Japanese court system has a 99% conviction rate. That's a ridiculous number and a sure sign of either gimped defense rights or otherwise a rigged system in favor of the prosecution. Even countries we normally think of as "repressive" such as Cuba have more fair legal systems.

There's not enough bigotry towards Japan tbh. Last year they had one of their diplomatic dudes in Germany complain to a concentration camp memorial about mentioning Korean sex slaves. Japan's government is almost as shit as Turkey's when it comes to nationalistic shitheadery and denial of unpleasant facts about their history.

Japanese prosecutors are allowed to interrogate you endlessly for hours and hours without your attorney. It's well known to be a completely rigged system. I don't blame Ghosn for wanting a fair trial, not some xenophobic asian kangaroo court that can hold you indefinitely.
