Since when is Turkey a war zone? Tokyo Metropolitan Police have arrested two Turkish nationals currently applying for refugee status for allegedly raping a woman in Kita Ward, reports the Sankei Shimbun.
Tokyo Reporter (h/t RF) At approximately 12:30 a.m. on December 27 of last year, Onder Pinarbasi, 22, and a 16-year-old boy allegedly took the woman, aged in her 30s, to a public toilet near JR Akabane Station and sexually assaulted her. The suspects also stole 9,000 yen in cash from the victim.
Pinarbasi, who has been charged with rape and robbery, claims the boy committed both crimes. The boy admits to onlyl the robbery charge. “I did not force myself upon her,” he is quoted by police in denying the rape accusation, according to the Yomiuri Shimbun (Feb. 22). The incident occurred after the suspects called out the woman, who was visibly drunk at the time, as she was walking home.
The suspects arrived in Japan last year. They applied for refugee status in August and October, telling the Immigration Bureau of Japan that they did not want to return to Turkey due to “problems that exist between relatives.” (Family disputes are not a reason to grant asylum)
While their applications were being examined, the suspects received a visa status granting “special permission to stay in Japan.” The suspects became people of interest for the police after an examination of surveillance camera footage taken in the area.
Japan has been attacked in the international media for only accepting a handful of Muslim refugees over the past few years. Now we know why.
Despite being heralded around the world as a Muslim-free nation, Japan has Muslim population of about 10,000. By deciding to accept these new refugees, albeit a tiny number, they will soon be plagued with the same kind of rape and sexual assault incidents as well as violent crimes that is on the verge of destroying Europe as we know it. In 1970, there were only two small mosques in Japan, but now there are around 200 mosques and home-based prayer centers.
In November 2015, at least 12 people were wounded in riots that erupted between Turkish Muslim nationals and Kurds outside the Turkish embassy in Tokyo, Japan, after Kurds tried to display the flag of a pro-Kurdish party.
Japan Times Footage of the incident showed police interrupting the scuffles between Turks and Kurds in front of the diplomatic mission in the Japanese capital city of Tokyo on Sunday. Two police officers were among those injured in the confrontations. The clashes erupted amid the Turkish army’s military campaign against members of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).
