On June 24, 2019, a detainee at the Omura Immigration Detention Center in Omura City, Nagasaki Prefecture (henceforth referred to as the "Omura Center"), fell unconscious in the shared main area. The detainee had been refusing meals and healthcare, such as intravenous drip infusions. They were rushed to the hospital, where they were pronounced dead.
The Immigration Services Agency has taken the matter extremely seriously, reviewing the Omura Center records, and interviewing the immigration control officers and medical staff on-site. In addition, an inquiry was conducted by medical professionals at external medical institutions, the results of which have been complied here.
