Notice

December 20, 2019 (Reiwa 1)
Immigration Services Agency

In "Those avoiding deportation (as of the end of June 2019)" published on October 1, 2019, by the Agency, it has been pointed out that one of the examples listed for "cases related to people who were granted provisional release after being issued a written deportation order that gained the attention of the public" did not include the verdict in National Diet deliberations.
The entry in the document above was an overview of a case that gained the attention of the public through journalism, based on details of the case grasped through reporting of the Regional Immigration Services Bureau in accordance with Article 62 of the Immigration Control and Refugee Recognition Act.
In this example, the arrest and confinement of the individual during the investigative stage was based on charges of attempted murder, interference with the execution of public duties, and the violations to the Swords and Firearms Control Act. This example was based on a report describing these charges from a related institution to the Regional Immigration Services Bureaus.
After this report, the defendant was tried for interference with execution of public duties and for violations of the Swords and Firearms Control Act. The defendant was not tried for attempted murder. The verdict of the trial was not guilty to interference with execution of public duties, and guilty for violations of the Swords and Firearms Control Act (with a suspended prison sentence).
As such, this example was included based on reporting at the investigative stage. The Agency earnestly accepts this comment and will be sure to take into account the results of the court decision when making such announcements in the future.
