I realize that not many people read this blog, nor will, but I have a request to my few readers.
My interns, friends, and I have searched the Internet for mention of House Resolution 125 on Child Abduction in the Japanese press. None of us has found anything.
It appears the tens of thousands of dollars the Embassy of Japan spent in Washington to try to squash or change H. Res. 125 went unnoticed. Maybe the lack of publicity was the Embassy's win. The Embassy was certainly caught unaware of how troubled members of Congress are by Japan's unwillingness to sign the Hague Convention.
If you have seen any mention of the Resolution and the vote IN THE JAPANESE PRESS, I would be grateful if you would pass that article along to me.
