At the request of the bereaved family, Noda City established a new committee for a re-investigation on the boy who committed suicide in Noda City, Chiba Prefecture.

In February, the city's third-party committee issued a survey report stating that "bullying cannot be determined to be the main cause of suicide" regarding the suicide of a boy in sixth grade in Noda City, Chiba Prefecture. In summary, the parents of the boys requested a re-investigation, saying that "the investigation has not been exhausted and there is no awareness of the problem of bullying damage."



In response to this, the city newly established a review committee made up of psychiatrists and lawyers, and the first meeting was held at the city hall on the 25th.



Professor Yoshikazu Hamaguchi, who specializes in educational psychology at the University of Tsukuba, who was elected chairman, commented, "I would like to thoroughly investigate and clarify the facts."



The boy's father told NHK that he wrote in his notebook, "My son complains about bullying, such as being ignored or avoided, and he wants to commit suicide." I would like you to show a very natural judgment about the relationship between suicide and suicide. "
