Japanese government urged to make state reparation

Pyongyang, August 26 (KCNA) — A report of the 50th session of the UN subcommission on prevention of discrimination and protection of minorities described “comfort house” as “rape centre” and demanded that the Japanese government make a legal state reparation and punish those concerned, said a Japanese newspaper recently.

The report noted that the government and army of Japan forced more than 200,000 women to serve as sex slaves at “rape centres” in the battlefields of Asia till the end of World War II and that these “rape centres” were often mentioned in enphemistic terms of “comfort houses.”
It is the duty of the United Nations to have Japan find out the survivors responsible for the “comfort houses” and prosecute them and to make sure that other countries, too, arrest criminals under their jurisdiction and prosecute them, the report said.
It demanded that the Japanese government make a legal state reparation and punish those responsible.
