Friday’s Nikkei gave top play to a GOJ plan to restrict exports of technology that can be used to monitor dissidents in line with the U.S.-orchestrated “Export Controls and Human Rights Initiative.” The GOJ is reportedly looking to revise an existing ordinance to designate security cameras, facial and biometric personal identification systems, and equipment to intercept telecommunications as sensitive technology for which exports can be regulated under the Foreign Exchange Law to prevent human rights violations by foreign governments.
