(支給対象犯罪行為の範囲を定める処分等)
(Dispositions Establishing the Scope of Criminal Acts Warranting Remission)
第五条 検察官は、犯罪被害財産の没収又はその価額の追徴の裁判が確定したときは、支給対象犯罪行為の範囲を定めなければならない。
Article 5 (1) Once a judicial decision to confiscate Stolen or Misappropriated Property or to forcibly collect monies of an equivalent value becomes final and binding, the public prosecutor must establish the scope of the Criminal Acts Warranting Remission.
2 前項に規定する支給対象犯罪行為の範囲は、次に掲げる対象犯罪行為について、その罪の種類、時期及び態様、これを実行した者、犯罪被害財産の形成の経緯その他の事情を考慮して定めるものとする。
(2) For Eligible Criminal Acts as follows, the public prosecutor is to establish the scope of the Criminal Acts Warranting Remission provided for in the preceding paragraph in consideration of circumstances such as the type of crime, when and how it was committed, who committed it, and how the Stolen or Misappropriated Property was formed:
一 犯罪被害財産の没収又はその価額の追徴の理由とされた事実に係る対象犯罪行為及びこれと一連の犯行として行われた対象犯罪行為
(i) an Eligible Criminal Act constituting a fact that has been established as grounds for confiscating Stolen or Misappropriated Property or for forcibly collecting monies of an equivalent value, and any Eligible Criminal Act committed as part of a series of offenses connected to this;
二 犯罪被害財産の没収又はその価額の追徴の理由とされた事実に係る犯罪行為が対象犯罪行為によりその被害を受けた者から得た財産に関して行われたものである場合における当該対象犯罪行為及びこれと一連の犯行として行われた対象犯罪行為
(ii) an Eligible Criminal Act due to which a party incurs damages, if a criminal act constituting a fact that has been established as grounds for confiscating Stolen or Misappropriated Property or for forcibly collecting monies of an equivalent value has been committed in connection with the property obtained from the party that incurred damages due to that Eligible Criminal Act, and any Eligible Criminal Act committed as part of a series of offenses connected to this.
3 検察官は、前二項の規定により支給対象犯罪行為の範囲を二以上に区分して定めたときは、その範囲ごとに、第一項に規定する没収の裁判で示された犯罪被害財産(一の犯罪被害財産が異なる支給対象犯罪行為の範囲に属する対象犯罪行為によりその被害を受けた者から得た財産又は当該財産の保有若しくは処分に基づき得た財産から形成されたものであって額又は数量により区分することができないものである場合においては、当該犯罪被害財産の換価又は取立てにより得られる金銭の価額)又は同項に規定する追徴の裁判で示された犯罪被害財産の価額を区分するものとする。
(3) Having divided Criminal Acts Warranting Remission into two or more scopes when establishing the scope of those acts pursuant to the provisions of the preceding two paragraphs, the public prosecutor is to divide the Stolen or Misappropriated Property that has been indicated in the judicial decision for confiscation prescribed in paragraph (1) (or the amount of money obtained through the realization or retrieval of that Stolen or Misappropriated Property, if one group of Stolen or Misappropriated Property has been derived from property obtained from parties incurring damages due to Eligible Criminal Acts that are part of differing scopes of Criminal Acts Warranting Remission, or has been formed out of property obtained based on the possession or handling of property obtained through such Eligible Criminal Acts, and that group of property cannot be divided into separate monetary amounts or quantities) or the monetary value of the Stolen or Misappropriated Property that has been indicated in the judicial decision for forcible collection prescribed in that paragraph into groups corresponding to each of those scopes.
(犯罪被害財産支給手続の開始)
(Initiating Procedures to Restore Stolen or Misappropriated Property)
第六条 検察官は、前条第一項に規定する裁判で示された犯罪被害財産又はその価額について、これを給付資金として保管するに至ったときは、遅滞なく、当該給付資金から被害回復給付金を支給するための手続(以下「犯罪被害財産支給手続」という。)を開始する旨の決定をするものとする。ただし、その時点における給付資金をもっては犯罪被害財産支給手続に要する費用等を支弁するのに不足すると認めるとき、その他その時点においては犯罪被害財産支給手続を開始することが相当でないと認めるときは、この限りでない。
Article 6 (1) Without delay after coming into custody of the Stolen or Misappropriated Property or the monetary value thereof that has been indicated in a judicial decision as provided in paragraph (1) of the preceding Article, as Remission Funds, the public prosecutor is to decide to initiate the procedures for issuing Remission Payments out of those Remission Funds (hereinafter referred to as "Procedures to Restore Stolen or Misappropriated Property"); provided, however, that this does not apply if the public prosecutor finds that the Remission Funds existing at that time are insufficient to pay for the Expenses and Remuneration that the Procedures to Restore Stolen or Misappropriated Property would necessitate, or if the public prosecutor otherwise finds that it is inappropriate to initiate Procedures to Restore Stolen or Misappropriated Property at that time.
2 検察官は、外国から前条第一項に規定する裁判の執行として没収された財産若しくはその換価若しくは取立てにより得られた金銭又は当該裁判の執行として追徴された価額に相当する金銭の譲与を受けるため特に必要があると認めるときは、前項本文の規定にかかわらず、これを給付資金として保管する前に、犯罪被害財産支給手続を開始する旨の決定をすることができる。
(2) Notwithstanding the main clause of the preceding paragraph, on finding it to be particularly necessary to do so in order to have property that has been confiscated in execution of a judicial decision as prescribed in paragraph (1) of the preceding Article, monies obtained through its realization or retrieval, or monies equivalent to the amount that has been forcibly collected in execution of such a judicial decision transferred from a foreign country, the public prosecutor may decide to initiate Procedures to Restore Stolen or Misappropriated Property before coming into custody of the relevant property or monies as Remission Funds.
3 前二項の決定は、前条第三項に規定する場合にあっては、支給対象犯罪行為の範囲ごとにするものとする。
(3) In a case as provided in paragraph (3) of the preceding Article, the public prosecutor is to reach a decision as referred to in one of the two preceding paragraphs for each of the scopes of Criminal Acts Warranting Remission.
4 検察官は、確定した二以上の犯罪被害財産の没収又はその価額の追徴の裁判について前条第一項の規定により定められた支給対象犯罪行為の範囲が同一であるときは、これらの裁判で示された犯罪被害財産又はその価額(既に犯罪被害財産支給手続が開始されているものを除く。)を同一の裁判で示された犯罪被害財産又はその価額とみなして、第一項又は第二項の決定をすることができる。
(4) If the scope of a Criminal Act Warranting Remission that has been established pursuant to paragraph (1) of the preceding Article is the same for two or more final and binding judicial decisions to confiscate Stolen or Misappropriated Property or to forcibly collect monies of an equivalent value, the public prosecutor may deem the Stolen or Misappropriated Property or equivalent value indicated in those judicial decisions (other than any such property or equivalent value of property for which Procedures to Restore Stolen or Misappropriated Property have already been initiated) to be the Stolen or Misappropriated Property or equivalent value indicated in a single judicial decision in order to reach a decision as referred to in paragraph (1) or paragraph (2).
(公告等)
(Public Notice)
第七条 検察官は、犯罪被害財産支給手続を開始する旨の決定をしたときは、直ちに、次に掲げる事項(前条第二項の規定により犯罪被害財産支給手続を開始した場合にあっては、第四号に掲げる事項を除く。)を官報に掲載して公告しなければならない。

(iii) the amount subject to exclusion (meaning the sum total of the amounts of coverage and compensation, if damage equivalent to the value of the property lost due to the Criminal Act Warranting Remission has been covered or compensated for (but only if that damage has been covered or compensated for by a person other than the Eligible Victim that lost the property due to the Criminal Act Warranting Remission or the general successor thereof); the same applies hereinafter);
四 その他法務省令で定める事項

(2) If an Eligible Victim that has filed an application under the provisions of the preceding paragraph becomes subject to a general succession before a determination as under the following Article or Article 11 is finalized in connection with that application, the general successor of the Eligible Victim may file an application for issuance of a Remission Payment even after the period for applying for remission has passed, but only within the 60 days after the date of the general succession.

(裁定)
(Determinations)
第十条 検察官は、前条第一項の規定による申請があった場合において、支給申請期間が経過したとき(その時点において、第五条第一項の規定による支給対象犯罪行為の範囲を定める処分が確定していないときは、当該処分が確定したとき)は、遅滞なく、その申請人が被害回復給付金の支給を受けることができる者に該当するか否かの裁定をしなければならない。前条第二項の規定による申請があった場合において、当該申請に係る一般承継があった日から六十日が経過したとき(その時点において、第五条第一項の規定による支給対象犯罪行為の範囲を定める処分が確定していないときは、当該処分が確定したとき)も、同様とする。
Article 10 (1) If an application as under paragraph (1) of the preceding Article has been filed, without delay once the period for applying for remission has passed (or once the disposition on the scope of the Criminal Act Warranting Remission under Article 5, paragraph (1) has been finalized, if it has not been finalized by that time), the public prosecutor must reach a determination as to whether the applicant is a person entitled to be issued a Remission Payment. If an application as under paragraph (2) of the preceding Article has been filed, the same applies once 60 days have passed after the day of the general succession connected with that application (or once the disposition on the scope of the Criminal Act Warranting Remission under Article 5, paragraph (1) has been finalized, if it has not been finalized by that time).
2 検察官は、被害回復給付金の支給を受けることができる者に該当する旨の裁定(以下「資格裁定」という。)をするに当たっては、その犯罪被害額(支給対象犯罪行為により失われた財産の価額から控除対象額を控除して検察官が定める額をいう。以下同じ。)を定めなければならない。この場合において、資格裁定を受ける者で次の各号に掲げる者に該当するものが二人以上ある場合におけるその者に係る犯罪被害額は、当該各号に定める額とする。
(2) In reaching a determination that an applicant is a person entitled to be issued a Remission Payment (hereinafter referred to as a "Determination of Eligibility"), the public prosecutor must set the amount of criminal damages (meaning an amount that the public prosecutor sets by deducting the amount subject to exclusion from the value of the property lost through the Criminal Act Warranting Remission; the same applies hereinafter). When doing so, if two or more persons falling under a category of persons set forth in one of the following items are subject to a Determination of Eligibility, the amount of criminal damages for each such person is the amount specified in the item:
一 同一の支給対象犯罪行為により同一の財産を失った対象被害者又はその一般承継人 当該財産の価額から控除対象額を控除して検察官が定める額を当該対象被害者又はその一般承継人の数(同一の対象被害者の一般承継人が二人以上あるときは、これらを一人とみなす。)で除して得た額(同一の対象被害者の一般承継人が二人以上ある場合における当該一般承継人については、この額を当該一般承継人の数で除して得た額)
(i) Eligible Victims that have lost the same property due to the same Criminal Act Warranting Remission, and their general successors: the amount arrived at when the amount that the public prosecutor sets by deducting the amount subject to exclusion from the value of that property is divided by the number of Eligible Victims and their general successors (if the same Eligible Victim has two or more general successors, they are deemed to be one person) (for each of the two or more general successors that have succeeded the same Eligible Victim, this means the amount arrived at by further dividing the quotient so calculated by the number of general successors);
二 前号に掲げる者のほか、同一の対象被害者の一般承継人 当該対象被害者に係る支給対象犯罪行為により失われた財産の価額から控除対象額を控除して検察官が定める額を当該一般承継人の数で除して得た額
(ii) general successors of the same Eligible Victim, other than as set forth in the preceding item: the amount arrived at when the amount that the public prosecutor sets by deducting the amount subject to exclusion from the value of the property that the Eligible Victim has lost through the Criminal Act Warranting Remission is divided by the number of general successors.
3 前項後段に規定する場合において、当該資格裁定を受ける者のうちに各人が支給を受けるべき被害回復給付金の額の割合について合意をした者があるときは、同項後段の規定にかかわらず、当該合意をした者に係る犯罪被害額は、同項後段の規定により算出された額のうちこれらの者に係るものを合算した額に当該合意において定められた各人が支給を受けるべき被害回復給付金の額の割合を乗じて得た額とする。
(3) Notwithstanding the second clause of the preceding paragraph, in a case as prescribed in that clause, if some of the persons subject to a Determination of Eligibility have agreed as to what percent of the Remission Payment each person is to be issued, the amount of criminal damages issued to the persons that have agreed to this is the amount arrived at when the parts of the amount calculated pursuant to that clause which would be issued to each of those persons are added together and the total is multiplied by the percentages of the Remission Payment that each person named in the agreement is to be issued.
第十一条 検察官は、被害回復給付金の支給の申請が支給申請期間(第九条第二項の規定による申請にあっては、一般承継があった日から六十日)が経過した後にされたものであるとき、その他不適法であって補正することができないものであるときは、その申請を却下する旨の裁定をしなければならない。
Article 11 (1) The public prosecutor must reach a determination denying an application for issuance of a Remission Payment if it is filed after the period for applying for remission has passed (or after 60 days have passed since the day of the general succession, for an application as under Article 9, paragraph (2)), or if it is otherwise unlawful and cannot be corrected.
2 検察官は、申請人が、第二十八条第一項の規定による報告、文書その他の物件の提出又は出頭を命ぜられた場合において、正当な理由がなくてこれに応じないときは、その申請を却下する旨の裁定をすることができる。
(2) The public prosecutor must reach a determination denying an application if the applicant fails to comply when ordered to submit a report, document, or other item under Article 28, paragraph (1) or to appear as under that paragraph, without a legitimate reason for failing to do so.

(支給の実施等)
(Issuance of Payments)
第十四条 検察官は、すべての申請に対する第十条又は第十一条の規定による裁定、第二十六条第一項の規定による被害回復事務管理人の報酬の決定及び犯罪被害財産支給手続に要する費用の額が確定したとき(第六条第二項の規定により犯罪被害財産支給手続を開始した場合であって、当該確定の時点において、同条第一項に規定する犯罪被害財産又はその価額についてこれを給付資金として保管するに至っていないときは、当該給付資金を保管するに至ったとき)は、遅滞なく、資格裁定を受けた者に対し、被害回復給付金の支給をしなければならない。
Article 14 (1) The public prosecutor must issue Remission Payments to persons subject to a Determination of Eligibility without delay once a determination under the provisions of Article 10 or Article 11, a decision on the remuneration of the remission administrator under the provisions of Article 26, paragraph (1), and the amount of expenses that Procedures to Restore Stolen or Misappropriated Property require are finalized (or once the public prosecutor comes into custody of the Stolen or Misappropriated Property or its value as prescribed in paragraph (1) of that Article as Remission Funds, if Procedures to Restore Stolen or Misappropriated Property have been initiated pursuant to Article 6, paragraph (2), but at the time that the aforementioned determination, decision, and expenses are finalized, the public prosecutor has not yet come into custody of the Stolen or Misappropriated Property or its value as Remission Funds).
2 前項の規定により支給する被害回復給付金の額は、資格裁定により定めた犯罪被害額の総額(以下この項及び第十六条第二項において「総犯罪被害額」という。)が、給付資金の額から犯罪被害財産支給手続に要する費用等の額を控除した額を超えるときは、この額に当該資格裁定を受けた者に係る犯罪被害額の総犯罪被害額に対する割合を乗じて得た額(その額に一円未満の端数があるときは、これを切り捨てた額)とし、その他のときは、当該犯罪被害額とする。
(2) If the aggregate total of the amounts of criminal damages set as part of a Determination of Eligibility (referred to as the "total amount of criminal damages" hereinafter in this paragraph and in Article 16, paragraph (2)) exceeds the amount arrived at when the amount of Expenses and Remuneration that Procedures to Restore Stolen or Misappropriated Property will necessitate is deducted from Remission Funds, the amounts of Remission Payments to be issued pursuant to the preceding paragraph are the amounts arrived at when the difference resulting from that calculation is multiplied by the percentages of the total amount of criminal damages which represent the amounts of criminal damages set for the persons subject to that Determination of Eligibility (with the products rounded down to the nearest one yen); and in other cases, the amounts of Remission Payments to be issued pursuant to the preceding paragraph are the amounts of criminal damages.
3 検察官は、第一項の規定により支給する被害回復給付金の額を裁定表に記載し、法務省令で定めるところにより、その旨を公告しなければならない。
(3) The public prosecutor must enter the amounts of Remission Payments issued pursuant to the provisions of paragraph (1) in the determination table, and must issue public notice of this pursuant to Ministry of Justice Order.

(4) Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph (1), if the whereabouts of a person entitled to be issued a Remission Payment are unknown or if it is not possible to issue the person a Remission Payment for other reasons, the public prosecutor is to act as the custodian of monies equivalent to the Remission Payment until the end of the period provided for in Article 31, paragraph (1). In such a case, the monies of which the public prosecutor is the custodian are not to be included in Remission Funds as concerns the application of the provisions of Article 26 and Article 34, paragraph (1).
(裁定等確定前の支給)
(Payment Issuance Prior to Finalization of Determinations)
第十五条 検察官は、前条第一項に規定する裁定、報酬の決定又は費用の額の一部が確定していない場合であっても、資格裁定を受けた者(当該資格裁定が確定している者に限る。)に対し、被害回復給付金の支給を受けることができると見込まれる者の利益を害しないことが明らかであると認められる額の範囲内において相当と認める額の被害回復給付金の支給をすることができる。
Article 15 (1) Even if part of a determination, decision on remuneration, or amount of expenses provided for in paragraph (1) of the preceding Article is not finalized, the public prosecutor may issue a Remission Payment to a person subject to a Determination of Eligibility (but only one whose Determination of Eligibility has been finalized) in an amount that the public prosecutor finds to be appropriate and up to an amount that it is found to be clear will not harm the interests of persons that are expected to be eligible for issuance of Remission Payments.
2 検察官は、前項の規定により被害回復給付金を支給した場合において、前条第一項に規定する裁定、報酬の決定及び費用の額のすべてが確定したときは、遅滞なく、資格裁定を受けた者に対し、同条第二項の規定により算出される支給すべき被害回復給付金の額から前項の規定により支給された被害回復給付金の額を控除した額の被害回復給付金の支給をしなければならない。
(2) If Remission Payments have been issued pursuant to the provisions of the preceding paragraph, once the determination, decision on remuneration, and amount of expenses provided for in paragraph (1) of the preceding Article have all been finalized, the public prosecutor must issue Remission Payments without delay to the persons subject to the Determination of Eligibility, in the amounts arrived at when the amounts of the Remission Payments that have been issued pursuant to the provisions of the preceding paragraph are deducted from the amounts of Remission Payments that must be issued as calculated pursuant to paragraph (2) of the preceding Article.
3 前条第三項及び第四項の規定は、前項の規定により支給する被害回復給付金について準用する。この場合において、同条第三項中「額」とあるのは、「額(次条第一項の規定により支給された被害回復給付金の額を含む。)」と読み替えるものとする。
(3) The provisions of paragraph (3) and paragraph (4) of the preceding Article apply mutatis mutandis to Remission Payments issued pursuant to the provisions of the preceding paragraph. In such a case, the phrase "pursuant to the provisions of paragraph (1)" in paragraph (3) of that Article is deemed to be replaced with "pursuant to the provisions of paragraph (1) (and the amounts of Remission Payments issued pursuant to the provisions of paragraph (1) of the following Article)".

第十六条 検察官は、犯罪被害財産支給手続において、第十四条第一項に規定する裁定、報酬の決定及び費用の額が確定し、かつ、資格裁定を受けたすべての者について被害回復給付金の支給等(同項、前条第一項若しくは第二項若しくはこの項の規定による被害回復給付金の支給又は第十四条第四項前段(前条第三項及びこの条第三項において準用する場合を含む。以下この項において同じ。)の規定による被害回復給付金に相当する金銭の保管をいう。第十八条及び第二十一条第一項第一号から第三号までにおいて同じ。)をした後に、当該犯罪被害財産支給手続に係る給付資金を新たに保管するに至った場合(当該犯罪被害財産支給手続の終了後にこれを保管するに至った場合を含む。)において、既に支給した被害回復給付金(第十四条第四項前段の規定により被害回復給付金に相当する金銭が保管された場合においては、当該金銭を含む。次項において「既支給被害回復給付金」という。)の額が犯罪被害額に満たないときは、当該資格裁定を受けた者に対し、当該新たに保管するに至った給付資金から被害回復給付金の支給をしなければならない。ただし、その時点における給付資金をもってはその支給に要する費用等を支弁するのに不足すると認めるとき、その他その時点においては被害回復給付金の支給をすることが相当でないと認めるときは、この限りでない。
Article 16 (1) If the public prosecutor comes into custody of new Remission Funds in connection with Procedures to Restore Stolen or Misappropriated Property after the determination, decision on remuneration, and amount of expenses prescribed in Article 14, paragraph (1) have been finalized and after the public prosecutor has issued or become the custodian of Remission Payments (meaning that the public prosecutor has issued a Remission Payment under that paragraph; paragraph (1) or paragraph (2) of the preceding Article; or this paragraph; or become the custodian of monies equivalent to a Remission Payment under the first clause of Article 14, paragraph (4) (including as applied mutatis mutandis pursuant to paragraph (3) of the preceding Article and paragraph (3) of this Article; the same applies hereinafter in this paragraph); the same applies in Article 18 and in Article 21, paragraph (1), items (i) through (iii)) for all of the persons subject to a Determination of Eligibility, and if the amount of the Remission Payments that have already been issued (this includes any monies equivalent to Remission Payments of which the public prosecutor has come into custody pursuant to the provisions of the first sentence of Article 14, paragraph (4); referred to as "remission payments already issued" in the following paragraph) falls short of the amount of criminal damages, the public prosecutor must issue Remission Payments to persons subject to the Determination of Eligibility using the new Remission Funds of which the public prosecutor has come into custody; provided, however, that this does not apply if the public prosecutor finds that the Remission Funds existing at that time are insufficient to cover the Expenses and Remuneration that the issuance of those payments would necessitate, or if the public prosecutor finds that it is otherwise inappropriate to issue Remission Payments at that time.
2 前項の規定により支給する被害回復給付金の額は、総犯罪被害残額(総犯罪被害額から既支給被害回復給付金の額の総額を控除した額をいう。以下この項において同じ。)が、前項に規定する給付資金の額から費用等の額(既支給被害回復給付金の算出において控除した費用等の額を除く。)を控除した額を超えるときは、この額に資格裁定を受けた者に係る犯罪被害残額(犯罪被害額から既支給被害回復給付金の額を控除した額をいう。以下この項において同じ。)の総犯罪被害残額に対する割合を乗じて得た額(その額に一円未満の端数があるときは、これを切り捨てた額)とし、その他のときは、犯罪被害残額とする。
(2) If the total remaining amount of criminal damages (meaning the amount arrived at when the sum total of the amounts of remission payments already issued are deducted from the total amount of criminal damages; the same applies hereinafter in this paragraph) exceeds the amount arrived at when the amount of Expenses and Remuneration (other than any amount of Expenses and Remuneration that has been deducted in the calculation of remission payments already issued) is deducted from the Remission Funds prescribed in the preceding paragraph, the amounts of Remission Payments to be issued pursuant to the provisions of the preceding paragraph are the amounts arrived at when the difference resulting from that calculation is multiplied by the percentages of the total remaining amount of criminal damages which represent the remaining amounts of criminal damages (meaning the amounts arrived at when the amounts of remission payments already issued are deducted from the amounts of criminal damages; the same applies hereinafter in this paragraph) owed to the persons subject to the Determination of Eligibility (with the products rounded down to the nearest one yen); and in other cases, the amounts of Remission Payments to be issued pursuant to the provisions of the preceding paragraph are the remaining amounts of criminal damages.
3 第十四条第三項及び第四項の規定は、第一項の規定により支給する被害回復給付金について準用する。
(3) The provisions of Article 14, paragraph (3) and paragraph (4) apply mutatis mutandis to Remission Payments to be issued pursuant to the provisions of paragraph (1).
(資格裁定確定後の一般承継人に対する被害回復給付金の支給)
(Issuance of Remission Payments to General Successors Following Finalization of Determinations of Eligibility)
第十七条 検察官は、資格裁定が確定した者について一般承継があった場合において、その者に支給すべき被害回復給付金でまだ支給していないものがあるときは、その者の一般承継人であって当該一般承継があった日から六十日以内に届出をしたものに対し、未支給の被害回復給付金の支給をしなければならない。この場合において、当該一般承継人は、法務省令で定めるところにより、届出書を検察官に提出しなければならない。
Article 17 (1) If a person whose Determination of Eligibility has been finalized becomes subject to a general succession and any of the Remission Payments to be issued to that person have not yet been issued, the public prosecutor must issue the unissued Remission Payments to a general successor of that person that files a notification within 60 days of the date of the general succession. In such a case, the general successor must submit a written notification to the public prosecutor pursuant to Ministry of Justice Order.
2 前項の規定により届出をした一般承継人が二人以上ある場合における当該一般承継人に支給する被害回復給付金の額は、同項に規定する未支給の被害回復給付金の額を当該一般承継人の数で除して得た額(その額に一円未満の端数があるときは、これを切り捨てた額)とする。ただし、当該一般承継人のうちに各人が支給を受けるべき被害回復給付金の額の割合について合意をした者があるときは、当該合意をした者に支給する被害回復給付金の額は、この項本文の規定により算出された額のうちこれらの者に係るものを合算した額に当該合意において定められた各人が支給を受けるべき被害回復給付金の額の割合を乗じて得た額(その額に一円未満の端数があるときは、これを切り捨てた額)とする。
(2) The amount of Remission Payments to be issued to a general successor in the event that there are two or more general successors filing notifications pursuant to the provisions of the preceding paragraph, is the amount arrived at when the amount of the unissued Remission Payments prescribed in paragraph is divided by the number of general successors (with the quotient rounded down to the nearest one yen); provided, however, that if some of the general successors have agreed as to what percent of the amount of Remission Payments each person is to be issued, the amount of Remission Payments issued to the persons that have agreed to this is the amount arrived at when the parts of the amount calculated pursuant to the main clause of this paragraph that would be issued to each of those persons are added together and the total is multiplied by the percentages of the Remission Payment that each person named in the agreement is to be issued (with the products rounded down to the nearest one yen).
