Presumed guilty: Japanese ex-prisoners denounce flawed criminal justice system
Issued on: Modified:
With the recent 130-day detention of former Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn casting a rare spotlight on Japan's judicial and penitentiary system, we take a close look at the reality of Japanese prisons. Our Japan correspondents went to meet two ex-inmates, as well as a former prison director. They spoke out about poor prison conditions and denounced a criminal justice system in which the presumption of innocence does not exist.
A programme prepared by Patrick Lovett.
