Sankei wrote that the GOJ recently conveyed to the UN that it will probably be difficult for Japan to host the United Nations Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice in Kyoto on April 20 as originally planned on account of the ongoing spread of the coronavirus. Thousands of officials from more than 100 nations are expected to attend the international meeting on criminal justice that has been held every five years. The UN will make a final decision on the proposed postponement shortly.
