On October 12, the world’s first national lawsuit for victims of the COVID vaccine began in the Civil Division of the Tokyo District Court, with the New Federal State of China, Japan Himalaya League, GETTR team on hand to track the case.

The case was filed against Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga, Chief Cabinet Secretary Katsunobu Kato, and various officials including the Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare, the Minister in charge of Coronavirus Control, and the Minister of Vaccination, requesting the defendants to cancel the decree designating the CCP virus as an infectious disease under the Act on the Prevention of Infectious Diseases and Medical Treatment for Patients with Infectious Diseases (the “Infectious Diseases Act”).

The case also required the defendants to cancel special approvals for Pfizer vaccines, AstraZeneca vaccines and Takeda Pharmaceuticals vaccines, confirming that the plaintiffs and others had no obligation to vaccinate against these vaccines.

In addition to this, the case requires that the defendants may not use PCR tests to determine whether they are infected with the CCP virus, may not issue vaccine passports and CCP virus negative certificates, and pay 300,000 yen each to the plaintiffs.

The case was represented by the Japan Anti-Vaccine Lawsuit Support Association on behalf of vaccine victims. In an interview with GETTR on the eve of the trial, the president of the association, Kazuhisa Ukawa, said that their association provides volunteer legal support for vaccine victims throughout Japan. He said, “Vaccine victims in Japan are now in a state where they have no voice and are alone and helpless.”

This world’s first national lawsuit for victims of the COVID vaccine has touched the hearts of people around the world, and local people in Japan are intensely concerned. According to information from the frontline reporters of the Japan Himalaya League GETTR team, the site was overcrowded and admission was by lottery, while more people braved the rain and umbrellas to await the outcome of the trial.
