“Life in Prison” for 1 year is a new law enacted by Japan to combat acts of cyber violence.

The abuse of cyber violence will be punished appropriately

Accordingly, Japan’s upper house passed this law on “cyber violence” in a session on Monday (June 13).

The law is expected to come into force this summer. Violators are subject to imprisonment for up to 1 year or a fine of up to 300,000 yen (approx. VND 50 million). Previously, the punishment for this behavior was only temporary detention for less than 30 days or a fine of about 10,000 yen (about 1,800,000 VND).
