The Immigration Services Agency admitted medical care system flaws Tuesday in a report into the death of a Sri Lankan woman detained at an immigration facility, and reprimanded the center’s top officials and supervisors.

The report also pointed out that repeated requests for medical care from the woman, Ratnayake Liyanage Wishma Sandamali, had not reached senior officials of the Nagoya Regional Immigration Services Bureau. She died at the age of 33 at the facility in March.
