Under "Supervision and Treatment Act", persons who inflicted injuries or committed other crimes become non-prosecuted or suspended for execution, if they are judged as being lack of responsibility due to mental illness.

According to the committee held by the probation office in Nara prefecture on 30th November, it was found that many of these ex-inpatients, who have been treated under this law, have no choice but to remain in the hospital due to the difficulty of finding the place to live, or guarantors.
