Recommended Posts

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – After a U.S. naval lieutenant was imprisoned over a vehicle crash that killed two Japanese citizens, U.S. Sen Mike Lee has made demands of Japan’s prime minister to return the soldier to U.S. soil.

Lee said he will take to the Senate floor this afternoon, March 1, to call for a renegotiation of the U.S. – Japan Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) after Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida failed to meet Lee’s deadline to transfer Navy Lt. Ridge Alkonis to United States custody.
