Saitama Prefectural Police arrested a woman on suspicion of violating the immigration law but later released her after discovering she is a Japanese national, police officials said Monday.

Police concluded the 28-year-old unemployed woman was not Japanese because she looked like a foreigner of Asian descent and was carrying an envelope with Portuguese writing on it, the officials said.
