Japanese steel against restaurant closures without scientific reasons. Does the story come from the East that can ignite the hope of Italian entrepreneurs weakened by the crisis and restrictions? In Japan has been holding court for weeks the lawsuit brought by the owner of the “Kill Bill’s restaurant“to the Empire for just one euro in compensation but which provoked a movement of opinion that gave rise to a millionaire fundraiser for the legal initiative.
To tell the story is Pio D’EMilia its SkyTg24. The reporter stationed in Japan met Kozo Hasegawa, owner of Global Dining, the restaurant chain that also owns the famous “Gonpachi“, the iconic restaurant protagonist of a mother scene of Quentin Tarantino’s film (actually in Kill Bill the restaurant has been perfectly reconstructed into a movie set).
“When the Tokyo government decided to fine only its 26 restaurants (out of over 2000 that did not comply with the” restrictions “) it took its hat and decided to go to court. He asks for 1 euro in damages, is getting many more online, thanks to a popular consensus that grows day by day “, explains the journalist on Facebook.” Restaurants do not pose a danger, if the rules are respected. Imposing time limitations is absurd. Mine is a battle of principle, it is also necessary for someone to oppose this antics that have been going on for too long, and not only here, “says the entrepreneur who attacks:” Soon in this country there will be more suicides than Covid deaths” (a this link the Skytg24 service).
“Mine is a battle of principle, or the government shows us scientifically that we are really the cause of contagions, or this antics must stop, it has already lasted too long “, says Hasegawa, who since the beginning of the pandemic has not respected the indications of early closure, along with many others. Japan the restrictions on the premises started out as non-binding requests. Then, however, the government imposed a fine that was lost to only 27 places, “26 of which, coincidentally, are mine”, comments the Japanese businessman.
And so with the help of the lawyer Rintaro Kuramochi sued the Empire (but first he paid part of the fines) asking as compensation the symbolic amount of the consideration of one euro. “I don’t do it for the money, I do it because I can afford it and because I want to help thousands of people who are failing and who are desperate. In the space of two weeks, over 2 million euros have been raised online to support legal fees and Japanese restaurateurs are taking place associating to assert their reasons.
