Another left-behind parent commits suicide in Japan

September 13, 2011

Akio Yokota, may you rest in peace.

This is the third reported suicide by a left-behind parent in Japan within the last year or so.  The other suicides involved Arnaud Simon, who took his life on November 20, 2010, and Christophe Guillermin, who committed suicide in June of 2010.

How many unreported suicide cases there are by left-behind parents being denied access to their children in Japan will never be known.
