The Death Penalty in Japan, with Mai Sato!
Iwao Hakamada was sentenced to death on September 11, 1968, for a 1966 quadruple murder.
On March 10, 2011, Guinness World Records certified Hakamada as the world's longest-held death row inmate.
Cool record huh! (Very very not cool).
Today we explore his story with Mai Sato!
