"Recently Japan has pursued extradition from the U.S. of Michael and Peter Taylor who are accused of aiding Carlos Ghosn in fleeing Japan. On Sept 4, U.S. Magistrate Judge Donald Cabell issued a ruling approving the extradition.
Some Japanese nationals are wanted and charged under the U.S. laws for international parental kidnapping (18 U.S.C.§1204) and with passport fraud (18 U.S.C.§1542). These combined are viewed by some to align with Articles 224 and 226 of the Japanese penal code. This would make them extraditable offenses.
Will the Ministry of Justice commit to extraditing these wanted individuals? If not, can you provide some details why Japan would not wish to uphold the extradition treaty with the U.S.?"
