Try guessing how many asylum seekers Japan accepted last year
Only 11 persons were granted asylum in Japan last year.

More than 5,000 people applied for asylum in Japan last year. Only 11 people were found worthy.

The figures were presented by the Japanese Ministry of Justice on Wednesday.

The increase in the number of asylum seekers last year was 53 percent compared to the year before. Eleven approved applications means that 0.2 per cent were granted asylum. The low figures have both organizations and lawyers who work with immigration go berserk.

- The low number of approved applications is shameful, says lawyer Shogo Watanabe, who has very few clients naturally.

The head of the Japanese organization Forum for Refugees, Mieko Ishikawa believes poor planning as well as a dysfunctional asylum system is the reason for the low numbers. What on Earth will they do for a living with a sensible immigration policy?

However the wise Japanese Ministry of Justice says that the low figure is because most people who are seeking asylum, do not meet a sufficient basis for the application to be granted.

Eleven granted asylum applications is not a new fantastic and incredible smart record by the way. In 2013 only six asylum seekers were granted asylum.
