She had arrived on a student visa in 2017 to study the Japanese language but overstayed her visa, and immigration authorities denied her asylum application.

If only she had followed immigration rules...... She would be alive and well in Sri Lanka.

The Japanese Government must pay for this and we all should never forget what happen. Don't let this event die in your mind if you are an international person living in Japan.

This is all touching and solemn, but the problem still exists, foreigners are still being abused, mistreated and dehumanized in these centers. Let's hope she's the last person to suffer this fate. I think this is every foreigner's nightmare in Japan, whatever your status might be, we can get arrested, detained, tried, and booted out without much hassle for the lightest of offenses.

Your thoughts are really shocking and reflects lack of sensation.

So, a few of you think that it's justified that a young girl who is not Japanese be [ placed in a very dangerous situation ] only due to the fact that her EX boyfriend took her passport from her where she could not try to leave or extend her visa in Japan?

Proof that there is still a lot of negative views of international people who live in Japan,

This is probably a good lesson for immigration authorities to learn from! Instead of holding detainees for months and sometimes years it’s better to just deport them instantly! Let the appeal system and other legal procedures proceed while they are in their own country rather than wasting the tax payers money on visa violators / detainees and then get bashed 24/7 by people about the poor conditions in detainees center! While I do sympathize with this Sri Lankan citizen who died, it’s was partly due to her breaking the law as well by violating her visa and being here illegally! If we just allow everyone to break visa conditions without detaining them then might as well just remove the entire immigration process worldwide and make people move to any country of their choice without the visa process…now that won’t be possible!

Michael Machida.......

only due to the fact that her EX boyfriend took her passport from her where she could not try to leave or extend her visa in Japan?

This is not what has been reported. Did you just make it up? It has been reported that she couldn't extend her visa because she was working and not studying. (Its quite common).

@Mr Kipling.

Sadly, @MichaelMachida is telling the truth.

The girl was abused. Asked the authorities for help, and she end up abused to death.

The agents laughed at Whisma because milk was running out her nose, and she wasn't able to stand up.

Wishma was force fed on her clotted mouth, and report it as a meal taken.

Here are her last moments:

In this video, where and what exactly made you certain the agents laughed at Wishma? And If you think THEY didn't care at all, about her, how come THEY were trying to spoon liquid foods into her mouth?

Please do provide some proof(s) that her ex-boyfriend took her passports. It is quite a new information.

Did you watch the video? I don't think there's nothing to add up there.

Where exactly in your link, can we all find her ex-boyfriend took her passports?

That exact piece of information is in other, more extended, articles. Please google it.

There will be a trial soon, and all the video evidence will be released.

If this video preview wasn't enough to make you cry the real images might.

Or may be nothing will ever touch you because your lack of empathy to other human beings.

Even if she didn't, she should still be alive and well in Japan.

Breaking the law shouldn't equal giving up one's human rights, 'Oh you broke the law so that means anything can happen to you while you're imprisoned.' And these were immigration laws not criminal law where one harms others or is a threat to society.

Yes I did twice and am asking you where ? I have impression that you don't read nor understand Japanese at all if you think the video contains the info in question. Be Honest.

Please do not dodge my question, The more you cry wolf, none would pay attention to your posts any more.

There will be a trial soon, and all the video evidence will be released.

I know and as I said, I am positive Trial will take place

Your link is NOT VIDEO PREVIEW. NObody but her sisters and lawyers watched the video so far

And what you folks call advance countries treat those intentional overstayers who reject deportation order as real criminals imprisoned to real Jail.

After all, she quit her school and stopped paying tuitions and the school released her. There was no possibility immigration office would renew her student visa status no matter how long she had waited for it.
