Huser condo owners seek help (then, people forgetting about it because of livedoor inspection)

OjimaBehind the livedoor scandals, the big case is almost left out. The Huser scandal is almost gone.

(to know about this, please find articles here)
I think police started inspecting livedoor on that day so people forget about Susumu Ojima, President of Huser Ltd, who has strong connection with congressional representatives. So Ojima can get away from strong bashing from people. This is very sad.

    I guess I’m guilty of getting a little caught up in the Horie drama… I agree the timing of the Livedoor raid seems very suspicious. Why do it now? Why not a week ago, or a week from now?

    I picked up the print edition of the Daily Yomiuri (English version) today — not because I like it but because I was curious to see how they would report the Horie news. I don’t remember seeing any mention at all in it today about the Huser/eHomes scandal or about Ojima’s testimony.

    I can imagine that some politicians feel very nervous about what Ojima might decide to start talking about if and when he feels he’s not being protected any more.

    yeah, since I heard about inspection of LD, I have been thinking “why now?”. But as big guys probably expected, people started getting excited about LD scandal.
    Horie must be punished but so do Ojima. I really don’t know why he is not caught yet. Politics?

    I don’t know why either. Perhaps it’s a matter of Ojima having more powerful friends that Horie.

    Anyway, for the record, I checked the English edition of the Daily Yomiuri from yesterday, and there definitely is no mention at all in it of Ojima or of Huser. There are several news stories and an editorial about Horie and Livedoor. (Knowing what Yomiuri is, you can guess what the tone of that editorial and those various news stories was).

    So if the timing of the raid and Horie’s arrest were intended to deflect attention from the Huser hearings and Ojima, it seems like it’s pretty pretty effective (unfortunately).

    I added a photo to this blog entry, to help it stand out on the page a little more.

    The timing does seem just a bit too convenient. The crimes involved in the Huser scandal are much more serious in my book, but of course the Livedoor story is much bigger news.
