WBC presents green belt to Hakamada, the “Japanese Hurricane Carter”

By Gabriel F. Cordero

The WBC gave an honorary world belt to the “Japanese Rubin Carter” Iwao Hakamada, a former Japanese fighter released last week, 48 years of being sentenced to death. WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman presented the green belt to the eldest sister of the 78-year-old Hakamada, who is recovering in a hospital after being on death row for four-and-a-half decades. A court ordered that Hakamada be released after DNA analysis suggested that the evidence against him was tampered with. He will finally get the retrial he and his supporters have sought since 1968.
