The image of the Olympic Games menaced

Dear Friend,

 

I am transmitting my message addressed to President Thomas Bach of the IOC.

Tokyo faces the nightmare of coronavirus out of control.

The surprising attachment to holding the Olympic Games as planned, without caring the health of

participating athletes, makes one question the morality of the Olympic Games.

 

With warmest regards,

Mitsuhei Murata

Dear President Thomas Bach,

All Japan is shocked by the rapidly spreading coronavirus variants infections, seemingly out of control.

The collapse of the medical system in Osaka is confirmed with cases of corona patients dying before being hospitalized.

In a popular program of the television Asahi (Channel 5), an outstanding journalist proposed this morning to clarify the influence of the Tokyo Olympic Games as regards the measures taken to cope with the Corona crisis.

This move reflects the increasing criticism against the abnormal attachment to holding the Olympic Games as planned without caring the health of the participating athletes.

The morality of the Olympic Games is now being questioned.

Japanese civil society ardently hopes to be liberated from the heavy burden of accomplishing the impossible mission.

With highest regards,

Mitsuhei Murata

Former Japanese Ambassador to Switzerland
