Business Bhutan - - Nation -

A 24-year-old Bhutanese stu­dent’s body, who al­legedly com­mit­ted sui­cide in Fukuoka, Japan, was found at a park in Fukuoka on Wed­nes­day morn­ing.

The de­ceased was in Japan since Oc­to­ber 2017 through the ‘Earn and Learn’ pro­gram.

For­eign min­is­ter Dr Tandi Dorji was quoted say­ing that of­fi­cials from the la­bor and for­eign min­istries were work­ing on pro­vid­ing as­sis­tance to the par­ents of the vic­tim and on bring­ing the body back to the coun­try.

The min­is­ter also re­port­edly said that the la­bor and the for­eign min­istries were work­ing closely and eval­u­at­ing the pro­gram as there seemed to be is­sues es­pe­cially re­lated to in­surance such as sick­ness and death as­so­ci­ated with the pro­gram.
