Conspiracy law takes effect amid concerns


A law penalizing the planning of a range of crimes took effect July 11, with the government insisting that it will help thwart terrorism even as concerns linger among the public that enhanced police power could lead to the suppression of civil liberties.

Under the law, terrorist groups or other criminal organizations will be punished for planning and preparing to commit any of 277 kinds of crimes.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's government framed the law as essential for tackling terrorism ahead of the 2020 Games. (Kyodo)
