Is Carlos Ghosn innocent or guilty?

今週末弁護士さんに教えてきました。
This weekend I taught a lesson to a lawyer.

今12回ぐらい私のレッスンを受けています。
She has taken my lesson about a dozen times now.

今回ゴーン元会長について話しました。
This time we talked about Carlos Ghosn.

Only the (検事) prosecutor has the evidence.  Poker players get cards and make a hand.  Sometimes they (bet everything) go all in on a hand.  The prosecutor has gone all in on the case against Carlos Ghosn.  The stakes are very high.

生徒さんは無罪だと思っていて、どうしてそう思うのか説明しました。
She thinks he’s innocent, and explained why she thinks that.

とても面白かったです。
It was very interesting.

“I didn’t shoot him! A person with a different gun shot him!
I have this gun because I was trying to scare the real murderer!”  “I don’t believe you! I know you shot him because you have a smoking gun! It was used just now!”  evidence that shows absolutely 100% that the (被告人) defendant is guilty = a smoking gun

有罪だと思っている生徒さんにも数人教えています。
I also teach a few students that think he’s guilty

いろんな生徒さんにどちらの意見も聞くのが好きです。
I like hearing both sides from different students.

I don’t think they have a smoking gun.  That’s why Carlos Ghosn was arrested twice.  If the judge funds Carlos Ghosn innocent, maybe people will get angry.  出る杭が打たれる (Australian thinking)

=
tall poppy syndrome  I think many people don’t like Carlos Ghosn because of tall poppy syndrome.
