Defendants' supporters submitted signatures collected from approximately 150,000 people including welfare officials nationwide to the Tokyo High Court on the 30th.
A 59-year-old female assistant nurse working in a special nursing home for the elderly in Azumino City, Nagano Prefecture, neglected to check a resident's snack six years ago, and caused an 85-year-old woman who ate a donut to die. In March, we were convicted of a fine of 200,000 yen in the first trial, charged with lethal charges.
The supporters are asking them to be acquitted in the second trial, saying, “If you become guilty, the care site could be shrunken and there will be no caregivers.”
The defendant's defense team also insists that the cause of death is not suffocation, but there is a high possibility of cerebral infarction.
