The family of a Sri Lankan woman who died in detention at a central Japan immigration facility will next week file a complaint with a judicial panel seeking a review of the case after prosecutors dropped charges against immigration officials, their lawyers said Monday.

Ratnayake Liyanage Wishma Sandamali's family on Aug. 8 will make the submission requesting that the Committee for the Inquest of Prosecution assess the decision clearing the officials they believe are criminally liable for Wishma's death on March 6, 2021.

The request to the independent panel of citizens tasked with reviewing prosecutors' decisions comes after the family was dissatisfied with the Nagoya District Public Prosecutors Office's June 17 decision to drop charges.
