Suruga Bank’s policy hurts privacy.

Suruga Bank’s arbitrary restriction policy has a devastating impact on the already suffering minorities and leads to widespread discrimination in Japan. The illegal practice, which contained baseless limits on minorities, improperly imposed unnecessary ID and forced minorities to show “an alien card” for no reason. Suruga Bank refused to disclose the disputed policy in October 2008, after VAIBS filed a lawsuit against Suruga Bank in Tokyo District Court. The lawsuit charged that the policy’s enforcement would put minorities at risk of losing bank accounts because the policy would cause discrimination against minorities. Suruga Bank contended Personal Information Protection Act article 18 does not apply to this case. But Suruga Bank’s assertion was wrong.
