伊藤詩織さんの

民事裁判を支える会

​#OpentheBlackbox

【裁判報告集会のお知らせ】

 

 2017年9月28日に提訴した伊藤詩織さんの民事訴訟は、非公開の準備手続きを重ねてきましたが、2019年7月8日、公開の弁論が開かれ、原告、被告両者の本人尋問が行われました。

 

 当日は原告、弁護団共に弁論に集中できるよう、報告の集会は改めて8月1日に催すこととしました。報告集会では7月8日の法廷の様子や、そこに至る経緯だけでなく、性暴力に関わる刑事告訴と民事訴訟のそれぞれの持つ意味など、この裁判を理解し支援していくための基礎的な知識についても、角田由紀子弁護士にじっくりとお話いただく予定です。また、伊藤詩織さんも直接、皆様に思いを語る予定です。刑事訴訟であまりにも酷い判決が続く中、刑事では明らかにできなかった詩織さんの事件を民事で改めて問う意義について、皆さんと共に認識を深める機会にしたいと思います。是非ともご参加ください。

 

ABOUT US

Founded in April of 2019, Open the BlackBox is dedicated to supporting Shiori Ito and rebuilding communities in crisis and advocating for victims of sexual violence.

 

Open the BlackBox named itself after the hidden manner in which it says such crimes are investigated and tried in Japan. Ms. Ito came to the trial with a purpose to open the BlackBox which she confronted with when she filed a criminal complaint and found problems hidden under the course of a civil lawsuit.

Ms. Ito said, "There are many elements that can be described as a 'black box' in investigations and judicial proceedings related to sex crimes because nothing is disclosed to the victim. I hope through the civil lawsuit that details of those elements are brought to light and that it serves as a catalyst to think about the current judicial system."

 

We Open the BlackBox began our activities with a strong determination and resolution to open the blackbox together with Ms. Ito in the course of this trial.

 

We ask for your support.

 
SUPPORT THE TRIAL

Four years have passed since the sexual assault against Ms. Ito.

She has been fighting almost entirely by herself and covering court-related expenses.

Ms. Ito is fighting a trial to determine the damage and seek compensation. The defendant's attorney is requesting an apology advertisement as well as issuing a counterclaim for 130 million yen. In order to speak up with the victims, we thought this trial was paramount. We decided to pay close attention to the trial and provide substantial support. We would like to multiply the voice of those who want to support her.

 

Although there have been multiple supports offered to her, Ms. Ito did not want to take it as the sole beneficiary while there are many other victims of similar assaults. The “Open the Black Box” has been working with Ms. Ito to find ways to support the victims who speak out to be not subjected to criticism, loneliness, and silence.

This is #MeToo group, as well as #WithYou to Ms. Ito who spoke out with # MeToo.

Let's speak out together.
