Case Sent to the Prosecutor’s Office

There were some developments in the case of Mr. SURAJ.

Nine months have passed since Mr. SURAJ (Ghana nationality) died during deportation in March. Half a year after we filed our complaint in June, the report of ten Immigration Bureau employees was sent to the Chiba District Prosecutor’s Office on December 27th under suspicion of “assault and cruelty resulting in death by special public officials”.

On December 28th, it appeared in several forums of the Japanese media.

Although the investigation was prolonged and there have been almost no movements recently, there seem to be some real developments in 2011 to recover the truth. We hope that we can expect our reader’s interest and support in the future too.
