Vietnamese people arrested in Japan for placing hidden cameras

Japanese police arrested a Vietnamese nurse for allegedly placing a hidden camera in a beach toilet, violating the law on prevention of harassment.

The suspect was arrested on July 3, after being found hiding a mobile phone and turning on the camera at a public toilet at Zushi Beach, Zushi City, Kanagawa Prefecture, central Japan.

According to police, a woman in her 30s from Tokyo was looking for a public toilet at the beach to change clothes when she was guided into a room by the suspect. When she stepped inside, she noticed a flashing red light and immediately called the police.

The Vietnamese man admitted to placing hidden cameras in violation of Kanagawa’s regulations on preventing harassment. “I just divorced my wife in my hometown, so I’m very sad,” the suspect, who works as a nurse, said. Police did not release the person’s identity.

During a conference in Hanoi at the end of June, the Ministry of Public Security said that the situation of Vietnamese citizens breaking the law abroad is still complicated. In Japan, Vietnam tops the list of countries whose citizens violate the host country’s laws.

According to the Japan Immigration and Residence Administration (ISA), there are currently nearly 433,000 Vietnamese living in this country, accounting for 15.7% of foreigners in Japan.

Currently, there are about 5.3 million Vietnamese people living and working in 130 countries and territories, of which more than 80% are in developed countries, according to the statement of the State Committee on Overseas Vietnamese. .
