TO THE EDITOR:
Regarding "Japan throws stones at Ghosn from a glass house," Philip Nussel, autonews.com, Jan. 11: By going after Carlos Ghosn, the Japanese government has caused many of us to learn that they claim a 99 percent criminal conviction rate. No such human endeavor has a true 99 percent success rate. It is reasonable to conclude that Japan is unsafe to visit, as any of us could be falsely accused of just about anything and locked away forever.
Even vast wealth was almost not enough to save Ghosn. To be clear, I'm not in a position to opine on his guilt or innocence. However, it is clear that the government of Japan has decided that innocence is all but nonexistent. Besides avoiding spending my money in Japan, I'll do the only other thing I can do to protest such a situation — avoid buying anything made in Japan or by Japanese companies.
