“draft” of a letter
The Nobuhiras stated in court that Nobuko was “removed from
her position in the Soka Gakkai because she sent a letter protest
regarding the rape incident.” As “evidence” of this,
she submitted a “receipt of a registered mail” and “a
draft of a letter.” (See picture).
In response, the Soka Gakkai submitted Nobuko’s actual letter
with the same “date” and “acceptance number”
as that receipt --- in short, it submitted the “real letter”
which Nobuko submitted to the Soka Gakkai Headquarters. The court
also recognized this letter as authentic. In other words, Nobuko fabricated
the “draft” after the fact.
A medical certificate
The Nobuhiras claimed that an injury was caused in the “incident
of 1983.” They submitted a medical certificate from the doctor.
However, the date was two months after the date of the so-called “incident.”
It was discovered through a deposition that the certificate had nothing
to do with the “incident.” Another of the Nobuhiras’
distortions was uncovered.
A written statement of an expert opinion of a tape
Shortly before the “Shukan Shincho” article was to be
published, the Nobuhiras made a blackmail phone call to the Soka Gakkai.
A tape recording of the call was heard in court.
The Nobuhiras brought forth a written statement from a voiceprint
expert, Mr. S. of a research center, who claimed, “The voice
recorded on the tape is a different person.”
The Soka Gakkai requested Takao Suzuki, a former deputy director of
the Science Police Research Center of the Police Department, a world
authority in voiceprint, to review the recording. According to Mr.
Suzuki, the statement from Mr. S had no scientific basis, and as such,
Mr. Suzuki believed the tape of the Nobuhiras calling the Soka Gakkai
to be authentic.
