The advisory panel, chaired by Masahide Maeda, professor of criminal law at Tokyo Metropolitan University, submitted its report to Tokyo Vice Gov. Yutaka Takehana.

The panel also called on the metro government to take measures to curb juvenile delinquency in the capital.

Takehana responded that the metro government will focus on reducing juvenile delinquency in cooperation with schools.
