Japan to compile stricter rules on school bus safety after child's death

Nearly 6 percent or 15 out of 267 drivers and other staff involved in school bus operations said they have experienced leaving children behind in the past year, according to a survey conducted in May by Sanyo Trading Co, which sells sensors that can detect children in vehicles.

Strict rules? Sensors? All you need just checking each seats whether any passenger left or not.

Regular commercial bus driver always do this, station staffs also do this when train won't be used on that day anymore during late at night. That's how they avoid people trapped in train overnight.

The ruling "confirmed that it is but natural to send someone who is suffering to the hospital," said the defense counsel, describing it as a "breakthrough" that the court determined the state had the duty of care over the man.

They detain him, so they have responsible for his safe and they failed!

ruled out linking the bureau's actions to the man's death. "As the man's health had rapidly deteriorated, it does not necessarily mean he might have been saved if he had been taken immediately to a hospital," he said.

Whether he can be saved or no, nobody know that, since he already gone.

Next, they have to be responsible for Srilankan death now.

Posted in: 40% of evacuees from Afghanistan have left Japan over poor support See in context

They were comprised of former staff members at the Japanese embassy in Afghanistan. The ministry gave them one year to adapt to Japan, how many years was Japan in Afghanistan and were supported by the staff because the Japanese couldn't speak Pashto? How much effort did the government really apply to help them adapt? Japan bent over backwards to accommodate Ukrainians but not the Afghans or even the people who fled Myanmar. The ugly truth is that although they like to imagine that they are not, Japan still has racist tendencies.

Especially now, it's considered more good looking and cool if Japan helping Ukranian refugee. That will appeal to Japan's image to the world. Japan even will change immigration policy only for Ukranian refugee.
