Three foreign-born residents in Japan have sued the country’s authorities over alleged racial profiling.
The plaintiffs say they have suffered distress from repeated police questioning based on their appearances.
The lawsuit filed on Monday aims to confirm that racial profiling is illegal and to seek $20,250 in damages for each plaintiff.
This is the first such lawsuit in Japan, according to the men’s lawyer, Motoki Taniguchi.
Zain, who is a Pakistan-born Japanese citizen, has lived in Japan for two decades, went to school there and is fluent in Japanese.
The 26-year-old told a press conference on Monday that he has often been stopped, questioned and searched by police.
