Yes. Lack of response is also not a proper response, but that poster never responds when challenged with facts.

Anyone else getting tired of reading this icon?

In most other countries, legal permanent residents have equal access to education and scholarships. The only privilege that permanent residents don't enjoy is the right to seek public office and vote.

Zainichi Koreans are not legal permanent residents but even more protected special legal permanent residents who have equal access to education and scholarships at public schools or private schools if the schools are officially accredited as educational facility (Ichijou-kou). Those schools are wide open for Zainichi Koreans. so what is your point?

to be clear

FYI, Japanese school in SK is being categorized miscellaneous special school as opposed to, here in Japan, SKorean schools are accredited as official educational facilities (Ichijyou-gakkou school), just like Chosun schools are treated in Japan

And the other side of the coin? Have all Japanese in SK received something there and if yes, how much? Just for information… Does anybody know in detail?

Korean students here mean Chosun (North Korea) students. The other side of the coin does not exist there is no Japanese school. In case of South Korea, Japanese school graduates are not even entitled diploma qualifying them to take entrance exams to upper school as opposed to the other side of the coin in here.

FYI, Japanese school in SK is being categorized miscellaneous special school just like Chosun schools are here in Japan as opposed to the side of the coin in here.

Subsidization or cash hand out? Never. Japan's treatment is rather rare.

FYI, each regional governing bodies have their own measure and lots of those are subsidizing these chosun schools still. All 23 wards of Tokyo doing that which is being criticized because that particular subsidization is only for Zainichi schools (meaning not being provided to other foreign schools) , hence essentially replacing the current situation by supporting them under the ground.

What's the point subsidizing anti-Japan schools who has been sending such fund directly to North Korea rather than spending for the students.

These Zainichi Koreans own special permanent residence permits. How come UN experts has not ever pointed out that it is discrimination against other foreign residents

Koreans and the defenders of Koreans should really cut the craps right here and right now.

No matter how you wish twisting the historical truths, you cannot dodge what have been crystal-clearly stipulated in 1965 treaty and agreement, in particular, article III-2 arbitration clause.

Why there's a condom for the athletics? This the first time I heard?

According to JT community, another side of Olympics is an official international one-night-stand casual sex festival. That is why. Tradition was initiated by South Korea, no wonder, and is pressed by IOC. We learned a lot what the Olympics really is didn't we?

Posted in: Alcohol allowed but no condom distribution in Tokyo Olympic village See in context

Since the 1988 Seoul Games, hundreds of thousands of free condoms have been distributed at the Olympics, to encourage safe sex as the world's elite athletes mingle at close quarters.

Games organizers say distributing condoms is meant to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS, and that the International Olympic Committee has asked for the handouts to continue this year, despite the pandemic.

"The distributed condoms are not meant to be used at the Olympic Village," the organizing committee told AFP.

From the other news "Japanese condom makers fear anticlimax at Olympics"

I can hear both KYODO and JT are laughing away

Why are condoms distributed to participants in the first place? Are they participating in sport games or sex competitions?

Looks like it has become a stupid tradition IOC forces host city to follow.

Mr. Kipling,

all I asked to see these type of situations from the point of humanitarian view. Other developed countries are also handling the refugee crisis but not totally ignoring the humanitarian aspects. I think the number is not less than Japan. By the way, as far as I understood, she was confronting her deportation issue within the legal process. All she urged for medical treatment as a human being. If it happened due to individual’s irresponsibility then they should be brought under justice.

Because she is dead does not necessarily mean she was treated in inhumane manner. All those innocent until proven guilty believers here at JT would complain a lot. Right ? Bokuda?

Having said that, I am positive like I said in previous threads, that this case would be put up and judged officially at the court

Because I am so interested in what the heck exactly so called human rights groups are actually advising

these people. I hope it is not true ( as one of the doctors suspected in his note) that she started hunger strike due to the tip from the group

Overstaying is a criminal offence punishable by up to 3 years of prison or up to 3 million yen. That is, however, different if the person is applying for refugee status, which is what the government is trying to change now.

Either way, it wasn't her behaviour and negligence which results in somebody's death. If you get hit by a drunk driver while jaywalking and die, is it your fault for "breaking the rules"?

Did she forget her visa expiry date? No.

Did she know she is overstaying. YES.

Was it intentional overstaying? YES.

Was she confined by this men so that she could not prepare for returning trip before expiry date? No.

Was she applying for refugee status? How do you know it? If so, how did she ever think she could be entitled refugee status. Some ignorant human rights group advised as such? UN knows, Japan knows, lawyers know what could define refugee or asylum seeker. The best she could get was so called special permission which has nothing to do with refugee status, which I doubt anyway. Besides none of media so far reported she was applying for special permission either. She was willing to return home when she run into the police station for help. She changed her mind ( as far as all the information so far available goes ) due to her personal circumstance being threatened by her ex-room mate, which should be the issues to be solved in her home countries with cooperation from Police there.

Is this facility officer(s) equal to a drunk driver? how can you be so sure. Did you ever read both outside doctors' notes and what they said in their final version?

Too many posters with just surficial knowledge on what happened,

Having said that, I am positive like I said in previous threads, that this case would be put up and judged officially at the court

Illegal overstaying itself is criminal offense.

No, it isn't. That's why the LDP is trying to change the law.

Overstaying=Illegal staying is cirminal offense.

Convicted murderers receive medical attention in prison; what’s your point?

Even if you play the game and appeal numerous of times, it doesn’t mean you deserve to be neglected then die.

She did including a few times at hospitals outside the facility and always at the facility. So what is your point

Many people here do not realize the simple fact that the person in question has not been convicted. The person in question was merely held in prison and died for "some" reason. Personal feelings or personal opinions are irrelevant.

And you just don't understand, she didn't have to be convicted, didn't have to stand in trial. Illegal overstaying itself is criminal offense.  get it all in your head would you?

Horrible beds in horrible rooms in horrible buildings. A disgrace even without corona

Heck. I didn't know there are so many JT posters who know how accommodations are supposed to be as ex-Olympics athletes. Oh yeah, Japan probably should omotenashi them by futon and tatami-mat only with rice and miso-soup.

It seems like human rights activists are having a field day. They paid all the legal expenses for the Sri Lankan woman as well as arranging for her funeral. You’d have to pay at least ¥3 million to have that kind of funeral in Japan. Where did all the money come from? And now they’re considering a criminal complaint. Vultures.

Yep. Those include an infamous politician, the leader of SDP Mizuho Fukushima who was insane enough to take this funeral as her great photo-op in front of Wishma's altar

Posted in: Turkey deports Japanese man for eating cats See in context

The Turkish authorities reported that the Japanese man said in fluent Turkish that Japan has a culture of eating cats; has, not the past tense had. This guy will be deported back to Japan but the police here had better put his sorry butt into a hospital and then track his butt everywhere he goes.

It is Japan's neighbor countries where they eat dogs or anything. Japanese didn't/don't have such culture.

When this psycho is back and treated at hospital, he should stripped of his naturalization.

Posted in: S Korean court rejects appeal from ex-comfort women on Japan assets See in context

You don't get it, this is the same judge who threw out the forced laborer case. Of course this ruling will be appealed to the supreme court that already OK the seizure of Japanese assets.

Be exact. It is just the assets of Japanese corp's subsidiaries operating in South Korea as South Korean judicial entities under the disguise of domestic issues. Not the one of Japanese government.

The 1965 treaty absolutely did not cover the damages resulting from Imperial Japan's crimes against humanity.

which is the interpretation, word by word, that is being criticized as unilateral, selfish, domestic one beyond international law by this judge and minority opinions in 2018

It is not uncommon for this to happen in any nations courts. Judges and even juries can look at the same evidence and come to different conclusions. One of the reasons the US has a Supreme Court is to settle conflicting rulings among different appellate courts. There is a pretty steady drumbeat of such cases in the US courts system.

I doubt it simply. For just similar domestic trials which happen from time to time with reasonable interval, maybe yes.

Like you posted in other threads, Int'l treaties would normally become quasi-domestic law or at least, would be fully supported by new bill in order not to cause any confliction between two laws in any nations.

These are the exact same cases involving another nation & treaties & diplomatic protections, etc which verdicts got flipped over within such short timeframe twice in comfort women and wartime labor.

If include this disclosure or cannot seizure orders regarding Japanese government asset, it would become 3 times

Sure plaintiffs cannot stand it and of course would appeal. otherwise, it is just like lottery. Citizen get completely at loss which way they should go if things are like this and considered not so bad.

Why South Korea is like this? Simple. Anti-Japan tribalism has kept pressing impossible fake narratives and brainwashing citizen and the someone who finally realized it feel for the fate of the country being out of control

and fighting here and there, even within Seoul central district court.

the international community, group of 100 Japanese lawyers, and even past Japanese prime ministers stand with you.

easy job never keep tackling real on-going issues. Their greatest rapporteurs are bunch of useless xxxxxx

group of 100 Japanese lawyers, do include not a few Koreans , naturized ethnic Koreans. By the way, Does South Korea allow Japanese citizen to become official lawyer over there doing such kind of political activities?

even past Japanese prime ministers stand with you, who is simply nuts. None takes him seriously here in Japan. That's why his PM days being called nightmare, which is one of reasons approval rating for CDPJ is still 1/10 of LDP

Unlike the conforming Japanese, Korean judges show diverse opinions and verdicts, which is not so bad in a democratic society. International law is still developing, and difficult to interpret. It is not surprising that contrasting decisions are made among judges. Democracy develops by argument and discussion, not by collective uniformity.

lmao. 2 different groups face totally opposite verdicts at almost same timing in both comfort women trial

and war time labor trial. The court ordered Japan to disclose it's asset in the country and the same court rejected appeal to seize Japan's asset just a week after. What the heck should ordinary citizen think and do under your greatest separation of powers which you claim is not so bad. Is it really not so bad? Nah. It is just a MESS

People there are ruled not by law, but just by fate

I would rather watch and cheer a cockroach race!

This seems nothing to with this particular Tokyo Olympics. Please watch and cheer a cockroach race then.
