Tokyo Olympic Games (Message to President Thomas Bach)

Dear Friends,

 

I am sending you my message addressed to President Thomas Bach, President of the IOC.

I pointed out that   a new change in conformity with the law of history that does not allow immorality to last indefinitely seems to be around the corner.

 

With warmest regards,

Mitsuhei Murata

Dear President Thomas Bach,

 

I am sending you an article on Tokyo Olympics published today in “The Indian Express”, a leading English daily in India. It has been sent to me from an eminent Indian statesman with whom I stayed in contact for decades.

The following subtitle sums up its content.

“The prevalent situation in the world with a Covid-vaccine still not firmed up and the virus erupting like a rash, puts an almighty question mark on the deferred dates of the Olympic Games.”

Popular Japanese actor and aspiring governor candidate Taro Yamamoto today announced that if elected,  he would cancel the Tokyo OlympicsElections for the Tokyo governor is slated for July 5. This is the first time that any political party or its candidate has used the cancellation of Tokyo Games as its poll plank.

 

Today, the whole Japan was shocked by the unprecedented arrest of two members of parliament, former Minister of Justice and his wife, close collaborators of Prime Minister Abe. They are suspected to have violated the election law prohibiting corrupt practices in the last House of Councillors elections.

 

A new change in conformity with the law of history that does not allow immorality to last indefinitely seems to be around the corner.

 

The Japanese civil society is asking for the decision of the cancellation of the Tokyo Olympic Games to be made as soon as possible.

 

With warmest and highest regards,

 

Mitsuhei Murata

Former Japanese Ambassador to Switzerland
