Tokyo District Court directed the Japanese government to compensate 68 million yen (approx. $792,000) to Mainali. Forty-five-year-old Mainali, who served 15 years in a Japanese Jail after being convicted in 1997 rape and murder, was acquitted by the Tokyo High Court on June 7, 2012, following a retrial.
Mainali, who went to Japan to work in a restaurant, was first arrested in 2000 on charges of overstaying. Two years later, Japanese authorities pressed him with charges of rape and murder that had taken place near Mainali’s residence in 1997.
After his acquittal, Mainali arrived in Nepal on June 16. Despite terrible pressure from the authorities, Mainali never confessed to the crimes. Instead, he kept on fighting, calling on his friends outside to rescue him as soon as possible. Mainali had writted a book explaining how he spent life in the jail.
