TOKYO, JAPAN - APRIL 14: (CHINA OUT, SOUTH KOREA OUT) Former death row inmate Iwao Hakamada, 78, gives the 'V' sign while he and his elder sister Shigeko attend a meeting hosted by the Japan Federation of Bar Associations on April 14, 2014 in Tokyo, Japan. Hakamada, a former professional boxer, was sentenced to death for killing four members of a family in a robbery and setting fire to their home in Shizuoka Prefecture in 1966. On March 27, nearly 48 years after he was arrested, Hakamada was released from the Tokyo Detention House when the Shizuoka District Court decided the results of new DNA tests pointed to the likelihood that fake evidence was used to support his conviction.
