Now I have to tell a abonimable news in prison in Japan. According to the information dated 24 February 2012, the Hyogo Lawyers' Association has given a recommendation for a transsexual woman to replace to female institution, who is now placed in male prison, an isolate cell. She is now completely treated as male despite she has has ungergone SRS before detention. She had her body checked by male staff and has had her hair shaved just like as Anne Frank had done at her arrival at Auschwiz. I feeze at this news; I cannot beleive that such a inhuman treatment is performed in a civilized country. Yet I must cry for the justice of international human rights law, because we are not slave nor monsters, but women and humankind with inherit dignity. I hope and demand global action for all citizens in the world and international comunity to save her.

Now I suffer from serious complication out of gender reassignment surgery in Thailand forced to recognisation of my personality, that is, my legal sex. But no dorcor help or care me and I also suffer from dreadful discrimination because of my disabilities, not only my gender identity. And further I am oppressed because I translated The Yogyakarta Principles into Japanese and Latin that are in Wipipedia. But I regret to translate this into Swedish where forced stelirisations are required for legal sex change. Yet I am released to know that United Nation have recognised NGO for LGBT according to the additional recommandation of The Yogyakarta Principles. I have been treated as a slave because of my gender identity. Still now I even regret that I hesitated to kill myself at the age of ten. My future depends on the permission of my asylum.
