Government plans strict vetting of refugees to prevent infiltration of DPRK agents

Yomiuri front-paged countermeasures the GOJ plans to take in the event of the influx of a large number of North Korean refugees during a Korean Peninsula contingency, explaining that the Japan Coast Guard will enhance patrols in the Sea of Japan while intense screening will be conducted at Japanese ports to see whether or not refugees should be granted protection. Those who pass the vetting will be housed in temporary shelters to be established in Kyushu. The GOJ is reportedly determined to prevent the infiltration of North Korean spies and other operatives to head off terrorist attacks.
