Enabling Criminals to Escape Case in Japan
Mr. A has an old friend Mr. B and they live in Kyushu in Japan.
Mr. B committed murder a couple of months ago and he has been placed on the wanted list.
Mr. A got to know that Mr. B committed a murder and he is on the run by watching news.
Several days after the murder case Mr. B committed, Mr. B visited Mr. A’s place and Mr. B asked Mr. A to help escaping.
Mr. A hesitated for a while but he finally accepted the offer and Mr. A gave Mr. B a ride.
The place where Mr. B committed the murder is in Kyushu so they thought that if they went out of Kyushu, they would be safe.
Then, they managed to go out of Kyushu and since Mr. A didn’t get involved anymore, Mr. A returned to Kyushu.
But the dragnet had been spreading all over Japan, so Mr. B got arrested on a charge of murder.
Then Mr. A got arrested on a charge of Enabling Criminals to Escape too.
