    Don't agree - Singapore and HK laws both follow UK conventions, and are fair and transparent. You might not agree with the punishment metted out (eg caning in Singapore) but it's their country their laws.

    Err.. have u seen how they
    1. set the law
    2. appoint the judges
    3. interpret the law according to the situation

    not sure how you call that fair and square..
    drawing analogy, the japanese can say their law is fair and transparent as well, just interpreted in their own internal ways...

This is very disruptive of our justice system and the prosecutor conviction statistics.
    I lol'ed

    Edit: it took me a couple to paragraphs to appreciate the full sarcasm, but this guy is brilliant. I think I'll spend this quiet morning reading a couple more of his blogs, he is good.

This alliance is not a merger as I understand it, but a cross-sharing arrangement with Ghosn holding everything together. With him gone, the future stability of this alliance is a big question mark. After all, there are rumours of Ghosn's removal not simply because of the crime he alleged to have committed, but because the Japanese did not like his ideas about the future plans of the alliance. And what about the French? Are they willing to continue an alliance when the Japanese threw their guy under the bus? And also don't forget Mitsubishi, arguably the weakest Japanese automaker. It was struggling and likely would have gone bankrupt had Nissan not bought a controlling share of the company in 2016.
    Nissan is NOT doing fine. Ghosn sought market share and some of the methods used to gain market share have come back to bite Nissan in the backside (i.e. selling many units as fleet vehicles thus devaluing resale for private owners, offering financial incentives, etc)

    According to the Japanese lawyer, there is a chance that even his daughter didn't know about his escape

    Give the guy some credit for engineering his escape. He is a smart fella. Even when he turned Nissan business around only to be backstabbed by his partners.
