Satoshi Hamada questions on awful abuse

Satoshi Hamada (浜田 聡 ), member of the House of Councillors, the Upper House in the National Diet of Japan since 2019, asked on 13th May 2024, several questions to the parliamentary Administrative Oversight Committee concerning the current case at Tokyo District Court about the Kishida administration’s request for a court order to dissolve the Family Federation of Japan.

Hamada’s questions are seen as an attempt to point out important perspectives that are missing from the authorities’ and the media’s one-sided, biased handling of the case. The apparent bias is seen by many as seriously endangering the court’s impartiality in its crucial decision-making process.

Committee member Satoshi Hamada asked a further question,

“Well, the answer (see part 2) was that they couldn’t confirm it, but it’s probably true. I’m sure all those involved in the police are going through a lot of trouble.

Furthermore, it is difficult to say that this issue has been resolved, so I would like to request appropriate handling of the matter.

There is actually an individual who was abducted and confined for a long period of time – 12 years and 5 months, to be precise.His name is Toru Goto. I would like to ask about this person’s case of forcible detention, which resulted in a non-indictment in a criminal complaint.

In Toru Goto’s book titled ‘Kidnapping and Confinement Carried out by Opponents of the Family Federation, there is a part where he discusses his own experience of forced confinement and subsequent victory in a civil lawsuit.

This person was abducted and held captive in September 1995 and released in February 2008. At that time, he was reportedly malnourished and had to be hospitalized.

After being discharged from the hospital, he filed a criminal complaint against those involved in the abduction, but it was not prosecuted. Reluctantly, a civil lawsuit was filed afterwards.

Toru Goto won the case there. I would like to ask about the non-prosecution decision at that time. Looking back now, I would like to hear your thoughts on the appropriateness of that decision.”

Yuko Matsushita, Director-General of the Criminal Affairs Bureau of the Ministry of Justice, replied,

“I will reply. You are asking for the opinion of the Ministry of Justice on the handling of a specific case by the prosecution authorities. However, the Ministry of Justice would like to refrain from commenting on individual cases.”

Committee member Satoshi Hamada continued his questions,

“Well, a few years later, the case went to the Supreme Court in a civil lawsuit, and Mr. Toru Goto won. I believe that the appropriateness of this outcome should be thoroughly examined. That is what I wanted to convey.

Um, regarding this matter, I would like to share a name that I believe everyone should be aware of. That person is Takashi Miyamura.This individual is believed to have been involved in numerous cases of abduction and confinement as a deprogrammer.

Although it is the family that actually carries out the confinement, this deprogrammer devised ways to avoid being held accountable and indirectly guided the family in the deprogramming efforts.

However, in court, his involvement has been recognized.

What I want to emphasize is that Takashi Miyamura, this deprogrammer, is said to be closely involved in a national political party in an advisory capacity, although not mentioned by name, according to the Family Federation.

Well, there may be various reasons, but I believe we should take seriously the fact that a person who was instructing others to abduct and detain people was involved with a national political party (CDP – Constitutional Democratic Party).

By the way, I am addressing the issues related to the Family Federation from a different perspective than the mainstream media.

I have received various information from members of the Family Federation and have also been invited to participate in their meetings.

The current situation is that the media are swarming around Liberal Democratic Party members who had past associations with the Family Federation.

As for myself, I would like to convey to the mass media that I would very much appreciate it if they could also interview me!

Featured image above: Front cover page of “Kidnapping and Confinement Carried out by Opponents of the Family Federation”, by the Family Federation, published in Japanese on Kogensha sep. 2023, 241 pages. The book is presented on Amazon as being about,

“Biased coverage and reporting on the Family Federation, like a witch hunt. ‘Freedom of religion’ is being trampled upon. Behind it are people who oppose the Family Federation with clear motives and strategies.

The first chapter of this book summarizes in Q&A format (20 questions) the background and history of what kind of maneuvers the forces opposed to the Family Federation have carried out. Chapters 2 to 4 summarize the notes of those who were abducted and confined, as well as the tactics used by the opposition.

In August 2022, during the second part of a General Assembly held in South Korea by Interreligious Association for Peace and Development (IAPD), an organization associated with the Family Federation, the theme of ‘Freedom of Religion’ was addressed with a focus on forced de-conversion through abduction and confinement. Chapter 5 includes case materials and testimonies from participants at the general meeting.

This book was created in order to understand the background of the current biased reporting surrounding the Family Federation, and to prevent the abduction and confinement of believers from happening again.”
