外国人法律相談

Legal Consultation for Foreigners

日本国際法律家協会は、在日外国人(特にフィリピン人)の抱える問題(結婚、離婚、労働、在留資格、国籍、人身取引など)に取り組んでいます。

2013年からフィリピンの弁護士団体 NUPL(National Union of People's Lawyers)と連携して、NUPLからはフィリピン人パラリーガルをインターンとして受け入れています。

​英語やタガログ語でも対応することができます。

The Japan Lawyers International Solidarity Association (JALISA) is providing legal assistance to foreign migrants in Japan (especially Filipinos) who are embroiled in various legal issues and problems such as marriage, divorce, labor, status of residence, nationality, and human trafficking, among others.

 

This program, which started in 2013, is in partnership with the National Union of People’s Lawyers (NUPL), an organization of human rights lawyers in the Philippines. JALISA and NUPL also cooperated in sponsoring a Filipino paralegal intern to come to Japan under JALISA’s supervision.

 

We provide consultations in both English and Tagalog.

日本人とフィリピン人の間の子ども(JFCプロジェクト)

Japan Family Reunification Project (JFRP) 

日本国際法律家協会では、日本で暮らすフィリピン人移民の問題を扱っているうちに、現地でも口コミで活動内容が広がり、NUPLの総会に招かれてフィリピンへ行ったときには、実際にフィリピンにいるJFCの母親たちから相談を受けました。

日本語での情報収集が困難なフィリピン人女性が、フィリピンで子育てをしながら、自力で日本の法的手続きを踏むのは非常に難しいことです。

私たちは、​クラウドファンディングで資金を調達し、2018年4月にフィリピンのマニラ、セブで調査を行いました。​ 調査報告書

父親も判明しているものの、証拠とするDNA鑑定の費用が出せずに滞っているケースもあります。

今回、寄付サイトを作りました。みなさまからご支援、よろしくお願いします。

While the Japan Lawyers International Solidarity Association (JALISA) deals with legal problems of Filipino migrants in Japan, its work has spread by word-of-mouth. When JALISA lawyers attended the General Assembly of the National Union of People’s Lawyers (NUPL) in Negros in 2013, they came in contact with a mother of a Japanese-Filipino child abandoned in the Philippines by the child’s Japanese father. JALISA found out that there are many other cases like this in the Philippines.

Meanwhile, many JFC along with their Filipina mothers find it very difficult to gather information in Japan to locate the whereabouts of the Japanese father and file legal actions to get paternal recognition and apply for Japanese nationality. Filipina mothers, meanwhile, are often left to raise their children in the Philippines all by themselves.

JALISA raised funds through crowdfunding to conduct a survey in Manila and Cebu, Philippines, in April 2018. 

While the identity of the Japanese father, in most cases, is known, there are instances where DNA testing is required and necessary to prove paternal relations. However, the high cost of DNA testing is often a problem which in turn delays legal proceedings.  
JALISA created a site where people can make donations to support this project. Thank you for your support.

 

 

​フィリピンにおける超法規的殺害

Extrajudicial killings in the Philippines

フィリピンでは法的な手続きをせずに、政府などが関与して行われる殺人「超法規的殺害」が蔓延しています。

労働者の権利を守ろうとする人権活動家や弁護士なども殺されています。

​日本国際法律家協会は、2016年10月にマニラで現地調査を行いまいした。

​また、IADL、NUPLと共に2019年3月にも現地調査を行い、声明を出しました。

2019年5月12日(大阪)18日(東京)でフィリピンから人権活動家や労働組合事務局長を招へいし、シンポジウムを開催します。招へい費用のクラウドファンディングも行いました。

超法規的殺害の危険から逃れようと避難民も出ています。マニラのキャンプは移動させられ、いまは、国家人権委員会の敷地内に移ったそうです(2019年3月末現在)。彼らがキーチェンなどを制作、販売をして生活費の足しにしています。こちらから購入できますので、ぜひご支援をお願いします。
 

There is an alarming rise in the number of "extrajudicial killings" in the Philippines allegedly perpetrated by government armed forces. People suspected of being engaged in crimes, such as drug-related and insurgency, or rebellion are being summarily killed without due process. 

Human rights lawyers and activists trying to promote and protect people’s rights have also been targets of extrajudicial killings.

JALISA conducted a fact-finding mission in Manila in October 2016 to investigate human rights violations in the Philippines. Another mission was conducted in March 2019 together with the International Association of Democratic Lawyers (IADL) and National Union of People’s Lawyers (NUPL) where members of the mission issued a statement.  

In May this year, two human rights activists, namely: Clarizza Singson, the Secretary General of KARAPATAN – Negros and John Milton Lozande, Secretary General of the National Federation of Sugarworkers (NFSW) will visit Japan for a speaking tour. They will speak during symposiums organized in various universities in Japan. JALISA is organizing an event for the visiting human rights activists on May 10 in Osaka and May 18 in Tokyo. JALISA is now raising funds to support the speaking tour through crowdfunding.  

Also, the number of displaced people in the Philippines due to massive militarization is rising. People is some communities are forced to evacuate due to the high incidence of extrajudicial killing. They are camped out in Manila and since March 2019, they have moved to the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) compound in Quezon City. To support themselves, they are producing and selling key chains and other handicrafts. You can purchase these products here to support their cause.
