It also appears to be the culprits who get the harshest jail terms
Another recent scandal to rock the Japan spy chat world came recently when it was revealed that one of the highest ranking members in the Japanese GOTO spy group had her life sentence for spying announced back in November of last year. In a move that was said to be unprecedented back in 1997 when the rule was established, Shina Shinichi in fact spent the next 26 years in prison having been a member of GOTO for just over 15 years. She had been one of the top ranking members until she was exposed as a spy back in 2012, and this was how she was sentenced to the death penalty. After being convicted of treason and having her life sentence announced last November in the lower house of the Japanese parliament, she was immediately released and moved to prison. That was in June of 2013. Since then, more and more people have come forward to accuse both her and her boyfriend of being members of GOTO. What is rather curious about this is that Shina has a son, and that son now is a high ranking member of the LDP , as the following video from “The Goto Report” shows. There are only five members of this LDP party at the moment. So a top-level spy like this will have to be very careful or he may get caught. There is no guarantee however, as she was a “very nice girl”, and there have also been a number of allegations of her having made statements that are false, so she may be able to make it to prison and reintegration in other ways, which is a very good thing since she was sentenced under the assumption of a massive confession. Of the spy scandal that rocked Japan back in 1997 (also named “The Goto Report”), it was one of the first in-depthskewedjournalists to find evidence that said that members of GOTO had been spying on each other for over two decades. In fact, they even came up with a name for the conspiracy they were supposedly trying to cover up, as you can see in the film “The Goto Report” below. They came up with the name “Kamikaze Koto-san” because it was a Japanese word that was used to describe the high ranking members of GOTO that were trying to get out of an assassination attempt, and as the news report said, “It was that man’s intention to take part in a devastating act of nuclear war, but the attack failed… So the secret was not exposed and the Koto-san was able to carry the same secret with him, a secret of betrayal against his comrades.” That same man, in the film, was not only a member of GOTO, but he was also a senior member of the LDP . He even got this honor from a senior member of GOTO himself, as he was present at a senior LDP meeting in 1998. When the movie came out in Japan, they did even more heavy-duty damage control by apologizing to members of GOTO , who were also called out on this. They even wrote off all of these allegations as lies or “false information,” because what the film showed was real and people had been trying to hide it for years.
Still, in Japan at least, nothing has changed. According to Japanese news sources I checked out, the high ranking members of GOTO are still waiting on the official apology from the LDP for the spying scandal of 1997.
As you can see in the film above, the high ranking members of GOTO are trying to go to prison for having tried to cover up the high ranking member’s espionage.
While I’m certain some of you have noticed how the film was edited, I wanted to show you what it looks like for you on the next page. The plot isn’t particularly difficult to follow, just watch the film and read the next page.
There’s a lot to unpack in this film. When you see how it’s edited in the rest of this post, you’ll understand why.
I’m assuming I should probably introduce a lot of spoilers, so I’m going to move away from that. Go on.
