Difference between law violation and evasion?

Sometimes, news on law-evading herb selling is covered in Japan.
Do you know the difference between law violation and evasion?

According to the Japanese dictionary “Kojien”, evasion of laws means that one commits a crime which laws prohibit in a way which does not infringe the laws.
In Bangladesh, people feel that it does not matter if the law evasion is not revealed.

There is one example. A private company constructed an amusement park and operated it as if legal.
However, it was revealed that the company illegally occupied the government land for construction and operation of the amusement park.

The illegal amusement part was located alongside the main street.
How bold it is! It is still unbelievable that the amusement park was illegal.
All the amusement facilities have been demolished and the empty lot has been being developed as a public park.
There is another example in which we feel different about the way of thinking.
We usually think that construction materials should be stored within the construction site and using public roads is outrageous.

It is unbelievable to occupy the public roads for private construction works.
However, the way of thinking is totally different from us in Bangladesh.
It is very common to use the public roads as storage space of construction materials.

It sometimes causes traffic jam. We see many scenes of selfish posture in South Asian countries.
They may not care about the detriment of others unless the situation is their interest.
When it comes to the things between law violation and evasion,

slums are typical examples. Some slums are obviously squatted,
however, eviction of people living in the slums is not always the right measure from a humanitarian standpoint.

There have been some huts in one slum area until quite recently.
After several weeks, the slum is totally demolished by the government.
The illegal huts can be removed, while the people living there do not vanish.

They do not go back to their hometown. Some people live on the streets as “floating people”,
others move to the outskirts and form slums again.

Few employment opportunities and low educational background due to poverty may cause the problem.
Bangladesh belongs to the newly industrializing countries after BRICs and is considered as a candidate country for China plus one.
However, it may take time to realize the rosy future.



故郷に帰ることもなく、いわゆるFloating peopleやホームレスとして道路脇での生活を続ける人もいれば、郊外の街へ移動し、またスラムを形成する人もいる。
