My friend Michael Q Todd, arrested at the Cove in Sept 16, got out of jail on provisional release yesterday.
His case is looking much better. It's not over...Michael still must appear back in Osaka for two more hearings...but it looks much better and is much easier on him and his supporters to look at his case from the outside.
Thank you for supporting Michael.
It looks like Michael WAS within the law, legally in Japan, when he was arrested. The police jumped the gun on Michael to arrest someone, anyone for any reason like they did with Erwin Vermeulen. The way he was treated so badly and even illegally in Shingu Wakayama by a mean-hearted police officer, is one of the things that has helped Michael get out, yet he paid a heavy penalty: 54 days in jail. Please take care if you go to Taiji.
For him, his fiancée, myself, and hundreds of supporters, it is a day to celebrate!
