    I believe it was a set-up but Takuma-san may have been careless even to go to China in the first place.

    He must know how insidious the China government must be.

    Not to mention he accepted, without inspection, the suitcase from the Nigerian.

    And being a municipal office-holder in Japan will not get him immunity.

    How do you know he accepted the suitcase without inspection?

    You are correct. Unfortunately, a suitcase is not a diplomatic bag, and said individual does not have diplomatic immunity.

    Because only the most idiot person in the World will knowingly bring through Chinese airport security that much illegal/prohibited drugs in a suit case. He might as well have brought it in a transparent plastic bag with a label 3.3 kgs. stimulant drugs! And he is not just any ordinary person in China, he is one of China's enemy No.1!

    Actually, people have done dumber and stranger things before to satisfy their personal drug habits:

    No Cookies | The Courier-Mail

    Mark Bronson was a superlawyer in Tokyo, who ran Asia-Pac and Japan real estate practices for one of the world's best law firms. He also had a coke habit, and had to supply himself for 2 weeks in Australia and Singapore since he was away from his usual Tokyo dealer (and they execute dealers in Singapore). So he decided to swallow 2 weeks' worth of a daily cocaine supply in plastic baggies and pick them back up once they exited his rear end. Unfortunately, the baggies began dissolving in his stomach, creating a massive overdose. Mark died at 44.

    He swallowed the pack of cocaine so that it will not be found by airport security. This is a desperate measure by a person who was aware that he was carrying an illegal substance and who also knew that that he cannot escape airport security screening. Maybe initially he put the plastic in his mouth without any intention of swallowing it. But since he needs to communicate with airport security after traces of cocaine was found on his bag, he was forced to swallow the pack of cocaine. Unfortunately for him, the plastic pack ripped in his gut spilling the cocaine straight into his system.

    This is not the case of the Japanese man. This Japanese guy obviously was not aware that he was carrying 3.3 kgs of stimulants in his suit case through a high tech airport security of the country that he is not welcome. Of course all the facts cannot be appreciated from reading the above article alone, I am basing my opinion on the most probable chain of events. Otherwise, the guy is crazy and criminally exempted.

    I don't know it, but that must be his story when he goes to trial.

    I don't know he is being framed by the Chinese, but I would put the probability at 95%.

    Another piece of information relevant to the case:

    am I correct according to Chinese law holding over 50g cocaine is subj to capital punishment? previously a Brit drug dealer was executed despite pleas.

    right wing (the amusing subject), west wing … all beating around the bush.

    What will be the consequence if they execute this Japanese?

    I think it will play into Abe's plan to militarise Japan since it will give rise to Japan Shintoism and militarism, which will be dangerous for all concerned, and not only China.

    Who knows that this man maybe Abe's Kamikaze chap wherein he will sacrifice himself so that the Real Sun rises again in the East!

    There is nothing further in the news of Takuma Sakuragi in the past several days. Perhaps some negotiations are going on.

    If Abe is really banking on this case to earn right-wingers sympathy in Japan, his PR advisor should be fired. The guy wasn't arrested for anything directly political - he had 3 kilos of controlled substances on him...
