An interim report issued by Japan’s Immigration Bureau regarding the death of Sri Lankan student Wishma Sandamali has revealed that the detainee groaned in pain for hours before breathing her last in her solitary confinement cell at Nagoya Detention Centre in Japan last March.

Wishma Sandamali Rathnayake (33) who was being detained for overstaying her student visa, died on March 6 after complaining of a stomach ache and other symptoms from mid-January. Her death has raised questions about the medical care provided to her at the detention facility, triggering allegations of basic human rights violations. 

According to the report which details the care provided for her and the circumstances leading to her death, she received no emergency treatment for more than two hours, despite the cell being under 24/7 CCTV surveillance.   

Wishma’s family came to Japan recently to perform the last rites of their sister and push Japanese authorities for a transparent and speedy investigation into the death. Her sisters criticised that they felt as if the immigration bureau was “covering the truth.”   (Piyumi Fonseka)

    This is what happens if you’re a citizen from a poor country, rajapaksas are making us even poorer

    very true, Rajapaksa's getting richer and richer by selling the country to the Chinese while population gets poor and we are treated like dogs

    Japan is a very insular country. It is not what it's portrayed to be where human rights are concerned. Foreigners if they do not have money are treated with contempt. If they could sell something. then they are friendly. It is an insular country not like European countries where human rights are respected.

    This Nagoya Detention Centre officials must charge for negligence and manslaughter. Over to you Mr. Japanese ambassador sir.

    What’s wrong with that? Is studying forbidden to 25 people? Is starting a new career impossible ?

    Murad Thursday, 20 May 2021 05:25 PM

    Sri Lanka is no different and we are the greatest racists and bigots in history.

    Due to the Jarapaksa govt, all young people want to get out as soon as possible, They want to Goto EU/UK or US or Australia. As rule of law and humanitarian laws. China if u don’t have money to Goto states, Japan for manual labor, Korea manual labor, Middle East house maids and drivers. So we have all statues of people leaving . If country was prosperous, people will be coming, only people who came nandasena and Basil. Why? To loot.

    I wish this much importance was given to the victims who were murdered without any justifiably during the civil war in sri lanka. Also also the white van victims.

    This inhumane behavior of Japanese is not a strange, when consider their ugly behavior in China and other areas surrendered to them during ww2

    GGT Thursday, 20 May 2021 10:56 PM

    You guys played the role of breach of law in a country that practice honesty and demanding JUSTICE? what a shame this is. Will you claim REFUGEE STATUS either in SOMALIA or Ethiopia?

    Remember ww2,the Japanese are cruel people,that is their nature.
