We have been receiving many thoughtful voices from people concerned and fans across the world about the sudden fatal accident of TAIJI in Saipan.
Five years have passed since his death and we could finally have an opportunity to talk with the Consulate-General of Japan in Hagatna officially and we hereby announce that the Consulate have admitted that the handlings of those institutions, that dealt with TAIJI, were poor and had problems.
With this admitting, we all consider that decent judgement has applied to this incident and decided to let this matter commend to the Consulate-General of Japan and Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan.
Here is a report of Tomomi Akatsuka, whom actually visited the Consulate-General of Japan in Hagatna.
TS GLASTON COMPANY
In spring 2016, I went to Saipan, pray for him and visited Consulate-General of Japan in Hagatna. However, as I wanted everyone keep smiling during the TAIJI’s 50th year anniversary event, I disclosed the information related to the incident. I apologize the delay of my report.
We had profound conversation (the Consulate-General of Japan have read the book “TAIJI” released last year) with the reports and documents that were mentioned on the chapter 1 of the book and we went to CHC hospital together.
I have been seeking the truth as this incident is not just TAIJI’s personal problem but also a problem for life of human.
In order to find out the truth, his body had to be autopsied while his body was not autopsied. However, I have been doing all means I can do to find out the truth and so, I would like to announce that this visit was the turning point to let this matter commend to the Consulate-General of Japan and Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan.
I have studied investigation of death and forensics and continue pursuit of this incident. Now I thought and strongly felt I have done all I could do with a personal level. I hope you understand this.
I believe it is a great advance that the consulate admitted this as an incident, showed the will to find out the truth and consider the life of my important person kindly. I really think this is a great advance as I kept blocked by judicial system with limited information.
I informed to the Consulate that we have a website that collects signatures of people that require re-researching this incident and I handed in the messages from 20 different countries to them. I would like to express my deepest appreciation for your help and support.
I have received many messages from the people who read the book I wrote. Although I could not reply the messages, they encouraged me very much.
I strongly feel the pure spirit that TAIJI left is still alive and has passed to us profoundly. Through TAIJI, I could study, got supported, and could meet new people. I really appreciate that I still could step forward even now.
Thank you very much again for everyone.
