A man in his 70s is intending to sue the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, seeking a lawsuit for damages next month, for forcing him to undergo ‘forced sterilization’ surgery under the now obsolete ‘Eugenic Protection Law’ without his consent.

The man’s lawyer tells us that it such actions shows “sluggishness of law operation.”

Regarding the now debunked Eugenic Protection Law, a woman in Miyagi prefecture filed a lawsuit seeking damages for the first time in the country in January of this year.
