Two inmates on death row have filed a lawsuit against the Japanese government after their lawyer argued that being notified only hours before they are executed is “extremely inhumane.”

Inhumane practice: The two death row inmates filed the suit in a district court in Osaka, demanding change and compensation for 22 million yen (approximately $194,000), lawyer Yutaka Ueda said, according to Reuters.
