The article “Swiss woman’s drug smuggling acquittal upheld” brings to light just how screwed up the Japanese judiciary system can be. The Swiss woman was acquitted of the charges against her by a Japanese court. Yet she remains in custody.

Let’s suppose the woman was a Japanese. Would she have been placed in custody? Of course not. Therefore, since the sole reason why the woman is still kept in custody is because she is a foreigner, it is only fair to say that the Japanese judiciary system is a racist institution.

If even being acquitted by a Japanese court is not enough, please tell me: What does it take for a foreigner to be innocent in this country?
