Recommended Posts

TOKYO — A petition seeking the release of a U.S. Navy officer convicted of killing two people in a 2021 vehicular accident near Mount Fuji alleges he was mistreated by Japanese police and denied a fair trial.

The petition, started on Change.org by a family friend, claims that police interrogated Lt. Ridge Alkonis, 34, several times per day for 26 days without legal counsel present and deprived him of sleep.
