Charge of Aggrevated Breach of Trust Dropped Against Sahashi

The Yomiuri Shimbun reports that the charge of aggravated breach of trust leveled by the Nova administrators against former Nova president, Nozomu Sahashi, has been dismissed.

According to the report, the Osaka District Public Prosecutors dropped the case due to insufficient evidence. Although Sahashi admitted to using the telecommunication company (Ginganet) he owned to sell massive quantities of unwanted videophones to Nova, Public Prosecutors deemed that there was no intent to cause harm as Sahashi never pocketed any of the money from the sale of the videophones.

Sahashi is still appealing his embezzlement conviction.

特別背任容疑で告発のNOVA元社長、不起訴

英会話学校「NOVA」(大阪市、破産手続き中)に約21億円の損害を与えたとして、破産管財人から特別背任容疑で告発された同社元社長・猿橋(さはし)望被告(58)(業務上横領罪で有罪判決を受け、控訴中)について、大阪地検特捜部は不起訴(嫌疑不十分)とした。3月31日付。

猿橋被告は、自ら実質経営する通信事業会社から、不要なテレビ電話機を、NOVAに大量に仕入れさせて損害を与えたなどとして告発されたが、特捜部は猿橋被告に資金が渡っておらず、損害を与える目的もなかったと判断した。

I call BS on that. Dude still isn't even in jail yet, is he?

Saruhashi might yet be able to escape jail, but I take some pleasure in knowing all the lawyers' bills he'll need to pay to get himself sprung will eat up whatever cash he has got stashed away. Then I'd say the chances of anyone wanting to give him a job or do business with him are less than zero, so before not too long he may be living under a bridge and eating leaves he's boiled up in an empty Cup Noodle pot. Picturing this is almost as satisfying as picturing him in prison.

...I can't believe after two and a half years, the f***er is still in the news. I mean, I'm glad to see that he is slowly and surely being burned at the stake. But really, I think we've reached the point at which eikaiwa has much better (?) news to report than this dead horse (which has already been beaten to a pulp). Nonetheless, thanks for the update.
