Pyongyang, September 3 (KCNA) — More crimes of the Japanese imperialists against the “comfort women for the army” have been disclosed, according to the Japan-based overseas Koreans’ newspaper Minjok Sibo.
Seven former “comfort women” in South Korea said that the Japanese imperialists forced many women, who were drafted as sexual playthings, to take medicines containing mercury or sprayed mercurial steam over their bodies on the pretext of “prevention of pregnancy” and “treatment of venereal disease”. As a result, their faces were contracted and many women died from mercury poisoning, they noted.
They vowed to fight it out to receive apologies and legal reparation for the crimes against the “comfort women” from the Japanese government.
