The First Nagatakai at Party HQ

January 21, 2010 12:00 AM

We would like to thank those 43 Ambassadors and embassy staffers who came to the first English Nagatakai held at the Party HQ yesterday. We would like to continue Nagatakai, an informal exchange of the views on current development in the Japanese politics, in Japanese and in English. We, the international bureau of the LDP, are also considering meetings with the Party leadership and the ambassadors by regions.

The battle between the Prosecutors Office and Ozawa Ichiro is intensifying. The Prosecutors Office is now leaking all those things that only the prosecutors can know to the media. This is a dangerous game for the media because, in order to get leaks, they cannot criticize the Prosecutors Office. The media seems to have chosen to be the dogs of the Prosecutors.
