Mr. Usami was sentenced to 3 months in prison with a 4-year suspended sentence on Tuesday, 27 Dec 2011 for stalking.
The website of Association of Against Religious Kidnapping and Forced Conversion reported that Mr. Usami had appealed to a higher court on Jan 6, 2012.
Mr. Usami said that rational grounds of "the purpose of filling of feelings of love in order to restore the relationship" were not shown, and the verdict was in line with the prosecutors scenario without being verified, and I could not accept the verdict at all.
The website said that the decision did not mention the backgrouds of the case, which involvoed forcible conversion practices such as abduction or confinement, therefore it could possibly foster the deprgramming practices, and that Mr. Usami was a collateral victim of the deprogramming practice and that the decision had no sympathy or consideration to Mr. Usami who depearately searched for his fiance who went missing all of sudden.
