AICHI – A 45-year-old temporary worker, was arrested on December 4 for assaulting and seriously injuring a man with intellectual disabilities at a facility for the disabled in Higashiura Town, Aichi Prefecture.

Since September 2018, three residents have been transported from the facility as an emergency seven times in total, and all have been diagnosed with holes in the intestines, but the facility did not suspect the possibility of abuse at all. Problems specific to facilities for persons with disabilities, such as high closed rooms and difficulty in explaining by the victims, emerge from the incident, but experts point out that “early notification leads to serious damage prevention.”
