It used to be that when a migrant here was the victim in a car accident – a fender bender or such – the local police would still end up blaming them for the collision. “I’ve been teaching them to stand for their rights and told them to keep evidence when they interact with the authorities. For more than a decade, the Refugees and Asylum Seekers Movement in Caserta (MMRC) has been helping migrants stand up to exploitative employers and appeal effectively for documents that allow them to find legal jobs and houses.

Japan to curb asylum seekers' right to work from Monday

Added: 14.01.2018 8:05 | 0 views | 0 comments


Japan will limit asylum seekers' right to work from Monday, making changes to its refugee system that are likely to swell the numbers of those in detention centers, the justice ministry said, prompting refugee groups to flag humanitarian concerns. The move to tighten one of the developed world's toughest refugee systems, which accepted just ten during the period from January to September last year, is a bid to clamp down on what Japan views as a system of back-door immigration. From Monday, the right to work is to be limited only to those Japan regards as bonafide refugees, while repeat applicants and those failing initial checks will be held in detention centers after their permission to stay in Japan expires, the justice ministry said.
