Greenpeace Japan hold a press conference at the end of the first day of trial of their activists Toru Suzuki and Junichi Sato (pictured), in Aomori, Japan, Monday 15th February 2010. Greenpeace Japan's Toru Suzuki and colleague Junichi Sato began trial in Aomori today (Monday 15th February 2010) 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.
