5) In Indonesia (Semarang), several Japanese soldiers violated military discipline and forced Dutch women to become prostitutes -- which was an exceptional case, Japanese military shut down the house two months later and punished the soldiers at the same time -- all these military officials were accused after war and were pronounced heavy sentencesI think it is enoughJapanese army exposed that and this brothel was closed by the Japanese army
Dutch Gernernment should offer the doccument about that.
Dutch investigation...at that time
It is necessary to have licensed it for the installation of the brothel.
In addition, saying that women who worked then were working voluntarily was a precondition.
and Their(comfort women) voluntary signatures were also necessary.
Friday, February 23, 2001 in the Guardian of LondonIn a judgment that is likely to have far-reaching implications for war crimes trials in Rwanda, Kosovo and East Timor, the tribunal elevated systematic rape from being a mere violation of the customs of war to one of the most heinous war crimes of all - a crime against humanity.
It is caused by the fact that the Allied Forces was excluded from a prosecution object of war crimes of WW2.Afterall, it took decades after Nuremburg and the definition of genocide to make systematic rape a crime against humanity.
I was surprised... because I've never seen a person from the US, who said so.winners justice...
war crimes are committed during every war.
The US was not charged for mass murder for Nagasaki and Hiroshima.
Winners' justice no doubt.
Where are they such people? Even if they are, the fact that the US is the only one nation which used A-bombs against Hiroshima and Nagasaki, could not be erased from history.there are people with the attitude that Japan won the war and whatever it did during the war should be erased from history.
It is caused by the fact that the Allied Forces was excluded from a prosecution object of war crimes of WW2.
It was not able to ignore a crime of Soviet Red Army troops if it took up a gang rape at Nuremburg trial.
Abe set off a storm earlier this month when he claimed there was no evidence that Japan's army forced women to work in military brothels during World War II. Historians estimate up to 200,000 women, mostly Chinese and Korean, were forced into prostitution by Japanese soldiers.
Most textbooks approved Friday touched on Japan's wartime brothels but did not discuss whether women were coerced or whether the Japanese military was involved, Kyodo News agency reported.
Abe's comments backtracked from a 1993 government admission that the Japanese military forced women into prostitutionOn Monday, he tried to quell the backlash with an apology to the victims, but stopped short of acknowledging that Tokyo forced thousands into sexual slavery.
On Saturday, a private Japanese fund set up in 1995 to help the so-called "comfort women" will expire, wrapping up a mission seen as falling short of expectations.
The Asian Women's Fund, created to heal wounds from Japan's often brutal expansion through the region during the war, provided 285 women in the Philippines, South Korea and Taiwan with $17,800 each in compensation, helped set up nursing homes for former Indonesian sex slaves and offered medical assistance to some 80 Dutch victims.
But many victims rejected the aid because it neither came directly from the government nor was accompanied by an official apology. The fund will disband Saturday with the dismantling of the nursing home program in Indonesia, its last project.
The head of the fund, Haruki Wada, acknowledged the results of the effort "were rather ambiguous, but it was the best we could do at that time."
"As far as Japan's reconciliation with Asian neighbors is concerned, our achievement was insufficient," he said.
At a press conference, researchers will tell something about the issue.
But their logic sounds really strange to me.
They claim that they finally uncovered (UNEARTHED) the secret docoments at the Tokyo Trials and that Japan must have responsibility for the issue again becasue Japan had aleady persecuted at the Tokyo Trials.
Needless to say, Japan accepted the judgments of the trials and of other Allied War Crimes Courts both within and outside Japan. And, of course, Japan had already paid reparation to the countries concerned. And the documents are not secret at all.
PRC and Korea were not invited to the Treaty of Peace with Japan, however Japan and the countries normalised the relations with bilateral treaties.[/QUOTE
One more thing related to your country, Denmark.
The reparation also went to your country.
This new discovery,Evidence submitted to the post-World War II trials of Japanese war criminals and acknowledged by the Japanese government shows its military forced Asian women into sexual slavery during the war, historians said Tuesday, citing newly unearthed documents
The findings from the mass of evidence submitted at the 1946-1948 Tokyo war crimes tribunal contradict Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's recent denial that the imperial army directly coerced women to work as so-called "comfort women" -- remarks that triggered outrage among victims and protests from South Korea and China.
In one document dated March 13, 1946, and unearthed last year by Kanto Gakuin University historian Hirofumi Hayashi, Dutch prosecutors quote a Navy employee as saying women in occupied Indonesia were rounded up, accused of fraternizing with Japanese and abused as "a pretext to putting them in a brothel."
This new discovery,
More than 30 years, it is already the document which anyone can know.
I knew a summary of these court in the days of a primary schoolchild.
When I was a primary schoolchild,
There was not the word of "Comfort Women".
