Title: Penal Reform for Drug Offenses in Japan
Authors: Maruyama, Yasuhiro

Abstract: The “Report of the study group on the state of criminal law regarding young persons” was released in December of 2016. The focus of this report concerns the criminal law system regarding young people, particularly matters such as the qualifying age at which the Juvenile Act applies and policy measures. The report primarily considers measures that would enable making correctional treatment programs mandatory for prisoners, These programs would be implemented, after integrating prison terms and imprisonment. The report also proposes an examination of the “unification of punishment,” addressing prison terms particular to Japan, as they relate to the international standards of imprisonment. In contrast to the above views, and amid discussions of the Prison Law Amendment, which is based on the perspective of respecting the independence of the inmate, many researchers have pointed to the necessity of discretion regarding the relationship between the principle of the treatment of the sentenced person and the “obligation” for correctional treatment. In addition, even in the United Nations Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners (the Mandela Rules), the state of treatment ensuring inmate independence is clearly expressed, and the above mentioned report may contradict this. Against this backdrop, this paper aims to clarify the issues in Japan’s attempt to reform punishment, via restricted freedom, for drug offenses in which “recovery” is enforced.
