Japan Disqualifies 2 Foreign Trainee Supervising Bodies

Politics

Tokyo, Oct. 9 (Jiji Press)--Japan's Immigration Services Agency and labor ministry have revoked their permits to two supervisory organizations for foreign technical trainees.

The government agencies announced their decisions Tuesday, saying that the supervisory bodies in eastern Japan prefectures of Chiba and Saitama concluded inappropriate deals with Vietnamese agencies for sending trainees to Japan.

To the Chiba organization, a Vietnamese agency promised to pay penalty if any of the trainees dispatched by the body disappears, according to the immigration agency. In addition, the two sides had no contract about payments that must be made to the Vietnamese agency.

The Saitama organization had a deal to receive kickbacks from a different Vietnamese agency.

Neither of the Chiba or Saitama body has received any technical trainee from Vietnam.
