Interesting Place - Japan

Criminal trials in Japan have a 99% conviction rate.

(Seemingly their conviction rate soared after their jury system was done away with, it has since been reintroduced, but only for serious crimes. Even China only has a conviction rate of about 98 percent and Russia a rate of about 90% (virtually unchanged in spite of the end of communism). Britain has a conviction rate of about 74 percent, and in America it's around 80%, but in both countries it's a lot lower for serious crimes.)
