Justice Minister Ryuji Koizumi stated in May that the revised legislation “helps lower long-term punishments and helps to arrest those without permission to stay.”

” Those who need security will be protected, while those who violate the rules will be dealt with sternly”, he added.

Critics have expressed concern about the impartiality of Japan’s screen procedure, warning that the new regulations may raise the possibility of candidates facing repatriation.

The Japan Association for Refugees stated on social media platform X that they are “deeply concerned that the police of this law does allow refugees who have fled to Japan to be deported and endanger their lives and safety.

More than 2, 000 Russians were residing in Japan as of May under a unique arrangement that classified them as “evacuees.”
