五輪憲章は反故!

Dear Friend,

I hope you are in the best of health.

Japanese civil society is now convinced of the necessity of radically reforming the Olympic Games.

The whole world knows the Charter of the Olympic Games has become dead letters.

The abnormal attachment to the holding of the Tokyo Olympic Games, indisposing the Japanese people by belittling their health seems to have given birth to serious animosity vis-à-vis the IOC.

Prime Minister Suga is striving hard to live up to the expectations of the Japanese.

He is yet to clarify the meaning and the aims of holding the Tokyo Olympic Games

in spite of the advice of his scientific advisor Mr. Shigeru Omi.

He is regarded as being afraid of the consequences beyond imagination that could emanate from the decision of cancellation is made.

I continue to believe the decision is inevitable from the standpoint of the law of history.

The risk of the current pandemic, seriously aggravated by spreading Indian variants, could dissuade many countries from coming to Japan under present circumstances.

With warmest and highest regards,

Mitsuhei Murata

Former Japanese Ambassador to Switzerland
