Only 8 percent of “second-generation” members of religious groups such as the Unification Church in Japan feel the government’s measures to protect them, which include banning maliciously solicited donations, are sufficient, a Kyodo News survey showed Saturday.

Their plight has garnered attention since former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was assassinated on July 8, 2022, by a man claiming to hold a grudge against the controversial group due to his mother making financially ruinous donations to them.

In the wake of the incident, the Japanese parliament enacted a law in December 2022 to tighten rules on fundraising practices by religious organizations that included imposing penalties on members involved in exploitative solicitations.
