Japan: Welcome to Japan?
Each year thousands of foreign nationals entering Japan, many originating from developing countries, are singled out for interrogation, exclusion, detention and deportation. Some of the foreign nationals entering Japan are asylum-seekers and they have been denied access to fair and satisfactory asylum procedures. Amnesty International calls on the Japanese government to uphold international standards in the treatment of foreign nationals and to end its current practice of unlawful interrogation-exclusion-detention-deportation procedure.
