Japan Stats

The prosecution rate for serious crimes in Japan including murder and rape has fallen from 90.5% in 1995 to 59.4% in 2006 according to the Japan Times.

The recent upping of the reward money to find Tatsuya Ichihashi, the number one suspect in the case of murdered English language teacher Lindsay Ann Hawker in Tokyo in March, is an indication of the desperation of the Japanese police who rarely persue criminal cases over 2 months if no suspects have been apprehended, according to a July 12 report in Shukan Shincho.
