Greenpeace Japan place a 'living statue' of Lady Justice outside the courtrooms where two of their activists, Toru Suzuki and Junichi Sato - the 'Tokyo Two', are currently on trial in Aomori, Japan, Wednesday 10th March 2010. Greenpeace Japan's Toru Suzuki and colleague Junichi Sato are on trial in Aomori following their exposure of an embezzlement scandal inside the taxpayer-funded whaling industry. The trial has become a landmark for Japan's legal system, after a recent opinion by the United Nations Human Rights Council's Working Group on Arbitrary Detention found that authorities have breached both the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the International Covenant on Civil and Political rights, in the treatment of Sato and Suzuki.
