Japan promised to make its borders stronger. This is because someone on bail easily escaped the country. Ex-Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn fled Japan to Lebanon last week. He was waiting to go on trial for fraud. He escaped even though the police had his three passports. Japan's justice minister said Japan would strengthen its border departure checks. She will also review bail conditions. She told reporters she has already taken actions to prevent anyone on bail leaving the country. She said: "I have instructed the immigration agency to further tighten the departure process."

It is still unclear how Mr Ghosn escaped. Security cameras monitored his home 24 hours a day. News sources say he took a bullet train to get to the airport. He then hid in the case of a double bass. He chose an airport where security was not so tight. He then flew from Osaka to Turkey and then to Lebanon. Lebanese officials said he entered Lebanon legally on Monday with a French passport. He has not been seen since. The international crime agency Interpol created a "wanted" notice for Mr Ghosn. Japan cannot ask Lebanon to return him because they have no extradition treaty.
