Akio Toyoda: Julie's package was "unintended" violation of Japan's drug law

Akio-kun bowing at press conference.

Unintended smuggling--that's what it must have been, says Akio Toyoda at a hastily-called press conference in Tokyo after his global PR chief Julie-chan was arrested on suspicion of mailing herself a package of "necklaces" that was reported to contain narcotic painkillers placed in bags at the bottom of the package. 


Akio-kun apologizes, as he did to Congress when summoned to testify about unintended acceleration. Just how much lack of intent there was in either case remains to be fully explored.
