「裁判がね、権力より」

玉中:裁判がね、権力よりだっていうのはね、ちょっと問題は原発とは違うけど、イラクの派兵で­反対して靴をなげた人がいるのね。(それは裁判じゃなくて国会で。)靴を投げた人が、­裁判に問われて、被告にされちゃっている裁判がこの間あってね。それは結審の日ってい­うので、私行ったの。そしたらなんと、裁判所の廊下にバリケード。裁判所の廊下よ。奥­まった、審議されている部屋はね、奥まった部屋でバリケード。それでね、警備員が10­人くらいいるの。私もうびっくりして。私はこれを携帯で写真を撮るわって言ったのね、­入れてもらえないし。そしたらあなたそんな事したら逮捕されちゃうわよって、連中が飛­びかかってくるわよ、やっちゃダメって言われてやらなかったけど。裁判所がそういう状­態なのよ。もうこの国はここまで来たのかって思った。


“Trials favor the authority”

Tamanaka: Though this is not directly about nuclear, trials favor the authority. There was a member of a troop who threw his shoe to protest his opposition. (That was not during the trial, it was at the congress) That person was sued and was accused. I went to the last trial. I saw this barricade in the court’s hallway. The court’s hallway. The consultation was at this secluded place and barricade was in front of that room. There were ten security guards. I was so surprised. I said I would take a picture. But I was told not to because those guards would spring upon me and arrest me if I did such thing. This is the situation at the court. I thought, this country has come this far.
