This August at the Higashi Nihon Immigration Center (Ushiku, Ibaraki, Japan), a Ministry of Justice detention center for foreigners who are in Japan illegally, a male immigration officer said to a Chinese male detainee that “bullying foreigners is fun,” a ministry report revealed.

According to the ministry, the sentence was uttered on August 7 at the Immigration Center while the officer and the prisoner, who had had his visa revoked following a criminal case, were chatting in Japanese. The explanation given was that the officer “made the statement in the flow of conversation after a unique physical characteristic of his was mocked.”

 不法滞在の外国人などを収容する法務省の東日本入国管理センター(茨城県牛久市)で8月、収容中の中国籍の男性に対し、男性入国警備官が「外国人をいじめるのが楽しい」と発言していたことが、同省への取材でわかった。

 同省によると、入国警備官は8月7日、刑事事件を起こして在留資格を取り消された男性と日本語で雑談中に問題の発言をした。「身体的な特徴をからかわれ、その流れで発言した」と説明しているという。
