I'm so happy to tell everyone that one detainee who has been detained for around 2 years got approved for provisional release!!!
The detainee will be released on Jan. 29th and start living in our shelter.
As I mentioned in the initial post, it was almost impossible for anyone to be provisionally released because of the Japanese refugee legislations that's been quickly getting severer over the past few years. Although there are still countless detainees who are persevering the severe and inhumane situations in their detention, this approval has a significant meaning that our constant effort and support can reach a breakthrough amid seemingly hopeless situations.
As a fridge now has become an immediate need, we still accept donations, so please help us and celebrate his victorious moment of finally winning provisional release!!
