Day 440 { Welcome Back Darren / Nova Boss Admits } Tuesday, June 2, 2009


Day 440 { Welcome Back Darren / Nova Boss Admits }



One of my better ALT friends... and possibly the best ALT friend that I have to date, came back from the US last week. He came to our town yesterday and even was at bible study with us last night...

A good couple of us met up with him at a restaurant called Marin... It has some good food there I would say... Its kind of like a Okinawa style restaurant... and Okinawa is like a string of over 100 little islands, seperate from the 4 main islands of Japan (where even the smallest one is bigger than Jamaica) ... And they kind of give you a caribbean feel... I hope to go there some day... Not sure when...

Anyway, so there was this company name Nova that hired people from all over the world to teach English in Japan... They were actually the largest of its kind until it went bankrupt in 2007. The former president of Nova Corp. admitted Monday that he siphoned off employment benefit funds just before the language school giant went bankrupt in 2007.

Apologetic: Former Nova Corp. President Nozomu Sahashi leaves the Osaka District Court on Monday. He is charged with funneling nearly ¥320 million from employment benefit funds in July 2007 by transferring the money to a bank account belonging to an affiliate, which has not been named.

"I apologize to the students and employees for all of the trouble I caused, but it was not my intention to do wrong," Sahashi told the Osaka District Court at the opening of his trial.


Bwoy, no apology is going to get me back my money... the full story is here
