One forced labor investigation involved Chinese interns in the TTIP in Kawakami Village, Nagano Prefecture.

Despite numerous reports and allegations of possible labor trafficking offenses under the TTIP in Kawakami Village, including confiscation of passports, imposition of exorbitant fines, and arbitrary deduction of salaries resulting from non-contractual infractions, the government did not prosecute or convict trafficking offenders involved in the use of TTIP labor or bar the involved organizations from participating in the program.

The government did not prosecute or convict forced labor perpetrators despite allegations of labor trafficking in the TTIP.

The number of identified victims, especially foreign trafficking victims, decreased with no evidence of a diminution in the overall scale of the problem, and the government identified no male victims of either forced labor or forced prostitution.

The majority of technical interns are Chinese and Vietnamese nationals, some of whom pay up to the equivalent of approximately $7,300 for jobs and are employed under contracts that mandate forfeiture of the equivalent of thousands of dollars if workers try to leave.

Reports continue of excessive fees, deposits, and “punishment” contracts under this program.Some companies confiscated trainees’ passports and other personal identification documents and controlled the movements of interns to prevent their escape or communication.During the “internship,” migrant workers are placed in jobs that do not teach or develop technical skills—the original intention of the TTIP; some of these workers experience under- or non-payment of wages, have their contracts withheld, and are charged exorbitant rents for cramped, poorly insulated housing that keeps them in debt.Recommendations for Japan: Draft and enact a comprehensive anti-trafficking law prohibiting all forms of trafficking consistent with the 2000 UN TIP Protocol; significantly increase efforts to investigate and prosecute forced labor cases and punish convicted traffickers with jail time; increase enforcement of bans on excessive deposits, “punishment” agreements, withholding of passports, and other practices that contribute to forced labor in the TTIP; establish a third, neutral, non-government entity to conduct a management audit of the TTIP; establish an oversight mechanism to promote accountability in the TTIP to hold perpetrators of forced labor responsible for their crimes; expand and implement formal victim identification procedures for front-line officers to recognize both male and female victims of forced labor or forced prostitution; enhance screening of victims to ensure potential victims of trafficking are not detained or forcibly deported for unlawful acts committed as a direct result of being trafficked; train front-line police officers to not arrest children in prostitution, but to treat them as victims of trafficking; provide specialized care and assistance to victims of trafficking; establish assistance and protection services that respect foreign victims’ cultural practices, such as religious observance and diet; provide permanent residency as an incentive for victims to participate in trafficking trials; increase the number of labor inspectors that are inspecting TTIP sending and receiving organizations, and establish a new mandate for labor inspectors to report on labor trafficking violations; establish mechanisms for foreign migrant workers to seek redress when abused in the TTIP, and disseminate this information to TTIP workers; aggressively investigate, prosecute, and punish Japanese nationals who engage in child sex tourism; and accede to the 2000 UN Transnational Organized Crime Convention and the TIP Protocol.Prosecution The Government of Japan maintained anti-trafficking law enforcement efforts.Japan is a destination, source, and transit country for men and women subjected to forced labor and sex trafficking, and for children subjected to sex trafficking.
