Softbank Japan discriminating against non-Zainichi Korean customers?
The owner of Softbank is a naturalized ethnic Korean, Mr. Son. Although one of the experts interviewed applauds his spirit on behalf of the Zainichi Korean community of Japan, he points out that his special pricing plan could be illegal under Japanese telecommunications law, which forbids pricing discrimination.
*Although it seems to be a case of discrimination against non Zainichi Korean customers, it will be difficult to know for sure unless the contract with the agency can be seen. The telecommunications regulator should follow up on this.
