Japanese diplomat gets laughed at for Japan's 'justice' system, yells "Shut up!", continues in broken English.
This is too good not to post:
- Japan sends a broken English speaker to the UN
- he is unable to address the foundation of Japanese police investigations, "not allowing defence lawyers to be present during interrogations of criminal suspects" (coerced confessions)
- his only defence is to 'protest too much', "Certainly Japan is not in the Middle Age(s)... We are one of the most advanced countr(ies) in this field."
- and then to yell "Shut up!" when this is greeted with derision as if his status as an amakudari 'erai-hito' meant anything to an international audience
Keep flailing Japan.
Post script: I blame 'kamo''s comment below, but the broken English reminded me of this Canadian 'Heritage' mandated cultural filler that seemed wrong to me even when first shown decades back. Am I a bad man for laughing? Yes.
Course, it ain't hard to lay into the US, either. Been a good week for it.
