The Kumamoto Prefectural Government will suspend the business operations of a hotel that in November refused to accommodate former Hansen’s disease patients, sources said Sunday.

The prefecture will notify Aistar Co., the operator of Ai-Ladies Kyuden Kurokawa Onsen Hotel, in Minamioguni, this week of its decision to suspend operations for around three days, the sources said.
