Vice-President Inauguration Party

Mr. Masaki Yamada, who has long worked with APFS as the consulting lawyer, has assumed the post as the vice-president of the Tokyo Bar Association. Mr. Yamada worked actively for the Action for Special Permission for Residence done by APFS during the early 1990’s.

The celebration party was held at a Chinese Restaurant in Ginza. Prominent lawyers who also advocate the protection of human rights showed up at the party, sharing numerous intriguing stories “off the record.”

APFS works hand in hand with many lawyers in tackling issues regarding the human rights of foreigners. We plan to preserve this connection with legal consultants and continue our activities in order to change society into a place where foreigners could live comfortably.
