I'm Kenji Goto Jogo. To the people of Japan and the Japanese government. I've been told this is my last message and I've also been told that the barrier obstructing my freedom is now just the Jordanian government delaying the handover of Sajida.

Tell the Japanese government to put all their political pressure on Jordan. Time is now running very short. It is me for her. What seems to be so difficult to understand? She has been a prisoner for a decade and I've only been a prisoner for a few months. Her for me, a straight exchange. Any more delays by the Jordanian government will mean they are responsible for the death of their pilot which will then be followed by mine.

I only have 24 hours left to live and the pilot has even less. Please don't leave us to die. Any more delaying tactics will simply see both of us getting killed. The ball is now in the Jordanian's court.
