Ex Finance Minster Found Dead

5 10 2009

Oct. 5 (Bloomberg) — Shoichi Nakagawa, who resigned as Japanese finance minister in February amid accusations of drunken behavior during an international conference in Rome, was found dead in his Tokyo home yesterday. He was 56.

One of many articles on this story.  Another is here

Mr Nakagawa was infamous for a very drunken looking press conference but also for exhibiting drunken behaviour at the Vatican Museum such as sitting down against the  Laocoon statue, touching some of the art, and for opening an emergency exit door.  My original post on that is here.  I will include intentions  for his soul and for comfort for his wife and children when I say my chaplet of Divine Mercy today.


An autopsy on former Finance Minister Shoichi Nakagawa has detected numerous anomalies in his cardiovascular system as well as the presence of alcohol, according to the Metropolitan Police Department.

This is the probable outcome of a life not centered on the Eternal but in the transitory. The poor man probably had to burden the entire economic problem of a nation, and it drove him to despair and into taking his own life.

I will also include him into my prayers as well as the entire nation of Japan.
