Japanese landlords sue families of suicide victims

Japanese landlords are demanding millions of yen in compensation from the families of suicide victims on the
grounds that the properties are difficult to let after someone dies in them.
But while the Japanese police and prosecutors are not widely accused of resorting to more aggressive forms of
interrogation such as torture, no-one outside the small interview room really knows what happens inside
because suspects' interviews take place behind closed doors - without an attorney.

So why does the Japanese justice system prize confessions so much?

"It is the king of evidence. If you can get someone to confess to a crime, the court is going to find them guilty,"
says Jeff Kingston of Temple University in Tokyo.

Japan has a conviction rate of over 99%, most of which are secured on the back of a confession.

"It is also seen as a chance given to a suspect to unburden his guilt and repent for his crimes."

If a suspect repents during the interrogation process, Professor Kingston says, prosecutors offer a lighter

Despite Article 38 of the Japanese constitution, which guarantees an accused person’s right to remain silent, the
police and the prosecutors put maximum emphasis on obtaining a confession rather than building a case based
on evidence. The official view is that confession is an essential first step in rehabilitating offenders. Japanese
judges tend to hand down lighter sentences when confessions are accompanied by demonstrations of remorse.
Even more important, prosecutors have the right to ask for lenient sentences when the accused has been
especially co-operative.
It is how the police obtain these confessions that troubles human-rights activists. A suspect can be held for 48
hours without legal counsel or contact with the outside world. After that, he or she is turned over to the public
prosecutor for another 24 hours of grilling. A judge can then grant a further ten days of detention, which can be
renewed for another ten days.

Japan’s constitution also states that confessions obtained under compulsion, torture or threat, or after prolonged
periods of detention, cannot be admitted as evidence. Yet threats and even torture are reckoned to be used widely
in detention centres—especially as interrogators are not required to record their interviews. Accidental death
during custody happens suspiciously often. Facing up to a possible 23 days of continuous browbeating, or worse,
could persuade many wrongfully arrested people to accept their fate and sign a confession as the quickest way to
put the whole sorry mess behind them

According to the US Embassy in Japan:

“Under Japanese law, you may be arrested and detained without bail for 48 hours by the police on
suspicion of having committed a crime. During this period, the police are required to inform you of
the crime of which you are suspected, of your right to remain silent, of your right to hire a lawyer at
your own expense… The police usually begin their initial questioning before you have an opportunity
to see a lawyer.”

In 2010, the New York Times reported this:

The suspects in a vote-buying case in this small town [Shibushi] in western Japan were subjected to
repeated interrogations and, in several instances, months of pre-trial detention.

In all, 13 men and women, ranging in age from their early 50s to mid-70s, were arrested and indicted.
Six buckled and confessed to an elaborate scheme of buying votes with liquor, cash and catered
parties. One man died during the trial – from the stress, the others said – and another tried to kill

But all were acquitted two months ago in a local court, which found that their confessions had been
entirely fabricated. The presiding judge said that the defendants had “made confessions in despair
while going through marathon questioning.”

In this context, Allison talks at some length about the Japanese social phenomenon of hikikomori, which began
to emerge in the early 1990s. Hikikomori are effectively non-spiritual late capitalist monks; male young adults
who "withdraw and remain in a single room they rarely, if ever, leave," sometimes for years. Generally hikiomori
are isolated in their family homes and remain dependent for minimal care on their parents, who they may not
even interact or speak with. Estimates of the number of hikikomori range between 100,000 and 700,00

Almost 46 million people are trapped in modern-day slavery, two-thirds of them in the Asia-Pacific region,
according to a study released Tuesday.
The Global Slavery Index for 2016 said an estimated 290,200 people in Japan, or 0.23 percent of the population,

are in slave-like servitude.

This includes people trafficked for sex work or trapped in debt bondage and forced labor.

“There are concerning reports of involvement of highly organized crime in the Japanese sex industry, with well-

established links for recruitment into sending countries such as Thailand,” said report author Fiona David of the

Australia-based nonprofit Walk Free Foundation.

The report also reflects long-standing allegations that a state-sponsored traineeship program locks foreign

workers in unrewarding labor in Japanese industry and agriculture.

It said Japan is among the richest nations doing the least about the problem within its borders. It ranked Japan

with Saudi Arabia, Qatar and South Korea in this regard.

It added, modern-day slaves in Japan can expect about the same level of help as those in impoverished Myanmar

and Tajikistan.
