Video clip of Japanese journalist being shot by Myanmar police

These are the shocking videos of the last moments of the Japanese journalist, Kenji Nagai, as he was shoved to the ground and shot at point blank by Myanmarese riot police on 27 Sep. Notice that immediately after Nagai-san is violently shoved onto the ground, at least four shots from an automatic rifle ring out. The doctor in the Japanese embassy in Myanmar confirmed that a bullet entered Nagai-san’s body from the lower right side of his chest, pierced his heart and exited from his back. This suggests that he was shot as he was down on the ground (refer to the picture I posted in yesterday).

  1. About that question on “what does ASEAN, CASE and PTC have in common?”, I suppose you can see for yourself what they really meant (after all these years of failure to fulfil what they were suppose to stand for):

    CASE – Consumers Are Sidelined Eventually

    PTC – Profits Through Consumerism

    ASEAN – Associations of Solely Economically-minded Asia Nations

    So there you have it. Don’t expect anything more than what you could hope to bargain for. In the end, it’s MONEY that counts, not MORALS (or principles, for that matter).

    Yes, money makes the world go round, and it’s still the Master of millions (statesmen or citizens alike).
