Former Olympic table tennis medalist Ai Fukuhara is in a tight spot.
Her ex-husband, Chiang Hung-Chieh, a former table tennis player from Taiwan, held a press conference at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan on July 27 and revealed that the Tokyo Family Court has ordered her to hand over her eldest son, whom Fukuhara “took away” last July.
Mr. Jiang, accompanied by his lawyer Aiko Ohbuchi and others, confessed that the Tokyo Family Court had ordered him to hand over his firstborn son to Mr. Jiang’s side on January 20. Jiang’s side also revealed that despite the court’s urgent temporary restraining order, Fukuhara had not complied with the order and would not comply in the future, so they filed a motion for compulsory execution on the following day, the 21st.
At the press conference, Jiang tearfully appealed, “I want to see my son,” and expressed concern for his eldest daughter who lives in Taiwan.
He said, “I want you to return my child peacefully according to the court. I want my brother to meet his sister (eldest daughter) as soon as possible.
After the press conference, Fukuhara’s side was represented by a deputy.
After the press conference, Fukuhara’s side vehemently refuted the claims through their attorney. Attorney Keiko Imazato said
She claimed that the case was based on one-sided allegations, that the judicial process in Japan had not yet been finalized, and that she was awaiting further proceedings.
and that the matter is not yet final. Ms. Fukuhara also argued that “as a mother, I will protect my child no matter what.
As a mother, my first responsibility is to protect my child no matter what.
The sports newspaper reporter in charge of the case added, “The court has not yet decided on the case. A sports newspaper reporter in charge of athletics added, “If she is dissatisfied with the family court’s ruling, she can appeal the decision.
If there is dissatisfaction with the ruling of the family court, a quasi-appeal can be filed within two weeks. Perhaps Fukuhara’s side is saying, ‘The judgment is not final’ because there is an appeal trial. I don’t know how likely it is that the first trial will be overturned. ……”
The original cause of the uproar was the news of Fukuhara’s alleged infidelity that broke out in March 2009.
While back in Japan on business from Taiwan, “Josei Seven” scooped Fukuhara on a date with a man resembling Shohei Otani in Yokohama’s Chinatown; the two stayed at the same hotel, but Fukuhara stubbornly insisted that they stayed in separate rooms.
The couple’s relationship broke down, and Fukuhara and Jiang divorced in July 2009, with joint custody of their two children.
Perhaps because of this, the Internet was flooded with criticism of Fukuhara’s words, “As a mother, I will protect my children.
She said, “The reason why I had an affair in the first place.
What kind of a mouth does that sound like?
Suddenly, she’s torn apart from her siblings…
“He’s using his children as shields.
The sports newspaper reporter mentioned above also had a lot to say about it. A reporter for a sports newspaper also commented
The former couple should have resolved this matter between them, not in the open. Fukuhara did not expect Mr. Jiang to come to Japan to hold a press conference, and he panicked, demanding through his agent that the press conference be canceled.
Mr. Fukuhara was in a panic.
In December, the WTT Women’s Finals 2023, the final event in the WTT (World Table Tennis) series, will be held in Nagoya, Aichi, Japan.
This tournament will be contested by the top 16 singles players in the world rankings and the top eight doubles teams. Ai Fukuhara is the GM of WTT Japan. Ai Fukuhara, who is the GM of the Japanese subsidiary of the WTT, recently announced to the media
I am very happy to finally be able to tell the Japanese table tennis fans that the tournament will be held in Japan for the first time,” she commented through the media the other day.
However, there may be objections to Fukuhara serving as GM.
The six-member Johnny’s Jr. unit “Ae. group,” which was scheduled to serve as a special supporter for the Volleyball World Cup to be held in September, has been nominated by the late founder, Jr! group, a six-member Johnny’s Jr. unit that was scheduled to serve as a special supporter for the World Cup in September, was not chosen due to the sex abuse scandal involving the late founder, Janie Kitagawa, according to a report in Shukan Bunshun (Weekly Bunshun). The reason, according to the report, is that there were “objections” from participating countries.
The “Shukan Bunshun” reported that the decision was made because of “objections” from the participating countries. It is not certain that some of the participating countries will object to Fukuhara being used as the “face” of the tournament, as was the case with the volleyball World Cup,” said a TV station official.
The battle between Fukuhara and Jiang may also cause a rift in the friendly relations between Japan and Taiwan.
The Taiwanese media outlet Tai Po reported on Jiang’s press conference
“She will be prosecuted for a felony,” the Taiwanese media outlet Taipei reported.
The Taiwanese media outlet “Taipo” was blunt: “She will be prosecuted for a felony. The divorce of Fukuhara has made her an increasingly unpopular figure in Taiwan, and her reputation has further deteriorated due to the “taking-away trouble.
The Taiwanese media has harshly criticized Fukuhara’s “betrayal. The Taiwanese media has harshly criticized Fukuhara’s “betrayal,” and Internet users have overwhelmingly defended Jiang. The image of Japanese people is also deteriorating rapidly.
Fukuhara has never given a public explanation since the affair was reported. Since Jiang has held a face-to-face press conference, Fukuhara’s “real voice” is also attracting attention. ……
