Greenpeace activists Toru Suzuki and Junichi Sato, the "Tokyo Two", began trial in Aomori in February 2010 following their exposure of an embezzlement scandal inside the taxpayer-funded whaling industry. Despite conducting a public interest investigation into corruption in the Japanese whaling industry, which was singled out by the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, the longest jail term for any Greenpeace activist in the organisation’s 40 year history was demanded in court in Japan today. Corroborating testimonies from whaling industry whistleblowers backing the allegations and contradictory testimony from prosecution witnesses have failed to prevent the severely disproportionate sentence being requested. The UN Human Rights Council Working Group on Arbitrary Detention stated that the 26-day detention of Junichi and Toru breached their human rights. Despite this the Court Prosecutor demanded they each serve a prison term of 1 year and 6 months for theft and trespass.
