Japan rape case: Rap beats in court
Rapid Definition and Free Rap Beats, a collaboration between Japan’s National Police Agency (NPA) and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, has been set to be released today.
Rap beats have been instrumental in prosecuting rape cases in Japan for many years, especially in cases involving high school students, with the police often relying heavily on the beats to convict rapists.
But a new development in the case against the 16-year-old victim of rape in the capital city of Tokyo last week has thrown up some new questions.
In a statement issued by the NPA on Monday, the NPCS said the case was being handled by an outside agency, and that the investigation had been set up without the cooperation of the Tokyo Police Department.
“The NPA is not involved in the investigation of the case.
The investigation is not being carried out by NPA officers.
We are in charge of the investigation,” the NSP said.
The statement went on to claim that the NPP is aware of the news that the agency is using Rapid Definition.
“We are very disappointed about this.
The NPA and the NPS have been working together on Rapid Definition for years,” it said.”
However, the case of the victim in the NJP case is different.
We have a clear understanding of the law and will take appropriate action.”
The NPP did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Straits Times.
But Rapid Definition is a popular and effective way of gathering forensic evidence on rape victims, and it has been used in Japan since at least 2008.
It is also often used by police in cases where a suspect is not formally charged and the victim is known to be involved in sexual offences.
Roughly a quarter of all rape victims in Japan are believed to have been raped by someone who is not a suspect.
In the case the NPHC says the rape occurred in the central Japanese city of Yokohama, it is also not clear how it came to be that the 16 year old was arrested and charged.
Police have said that the teen was not involved with any other gangs in the area at the time of the incident.
Police are investigating the case, but are yet to determine the motive for the arrest, or how the teenager was able to evade prosecution.
