The Leprosy Patients in Japan Hold the State Compensation According to the Procedure of Matsuo Fujimoto-Event
The case in hand is a sequel of the litigation about Matsuo Fujimoto-Event concerning the Leprosy in Japan. The plaintiffs with the history of Leprosy complained about the discrimination caused of the unproper quarantine by the state at that time. The previous judgment which was made by the judges in the sanatorium of the quarantine infringed the right of personality and the procedure of fair trial wasn’t followed. The prosecutor didn’t furthermore petition for the retrial. The plaintiffs was stigmatizing damaged consequently. In the end, the court granted that the damage the plaintiffs had in the issued case was caused of the compulsory quarantine by the state and the general social structure arisen from the former, not of the case as such instead. Therefore the plaintiffs couldn’t appeal to Matsuo Fujimoto-Event that the procedure of the trial faulted to request the state compensation.
