Japanese Supreme Court Denies History

Posted by Jack Stephens on April 28, 2007

The blogger of Chinese in Vancouver posts a response by the Canadian Association for Learning & Preserving the History of World War II in Asia to the recent ruling by the Japanese Supreme Court denying compenstation to Japanese “comfort” women:

“However, to this day the Japanese government has been covering up the facts, putting off and delaying redress, deliberately misinterpret the law and stubbornly shirking its responsibility. The Japanese corporations involved in enslaving Chinese labourers adopt the same immoral position as the Japanese government. The Supreme Court of Japan is supposed to uphold judicial justice. However, in the final ruling of the Nishimatsu forced labour case, the chief justice of the Second Petty Bench of the Supreme Court Ryoji Nakagawa stated that according to the Joint Communique of the Government of Japan and the People’s Republic of China (1972), Chinese individuals’ right to seek compensation had already been abandoned and that as far as court trial was concerned, there was no legal basis (for the victims) to claim compensation. Because the Chinese victims’ rights to claim have been denied by the Supreme Court, all other Chinese victims’ lawsuits seeking postwar compensation including the case of the Chinese “comfort women” have been deprived of any chance in seeking justice in the Japanese judiciary system.”
