Japan’s Monstrous Desecration of Remains of Koreans under Fire

Pyongyang, July 25 (KCNA) –Japan is so mean, despicable and wicked that it is not the country which the DPRK can deal with anywhere, says Rodong Sinmun Monday in a signed commentary in connection with the disclosure of the Japanese reactionaries’ serious desecration of the remains of Korean draftees.

The Nagoya, Japan, Social Welfare Consultative Council clarified that remains of Koreans who were drafted to Japan during the Japanese imperialists’ colonial rule of Korea kept at a columbarium in the city had been pulverized and disposed of in 1999 without neither the confirmation of their identities nor advance notice to their bereaved families.

This is the double murder of the victims of forcible drafting as it totally deprived their bereaved families of their right to take back the remains of their forefathers.
This outrage once again convinced the Koreans of the moral vulgarity, poor quality and the despicable and cruel nature of the Japanese reactionaries.

The action taken by the Japanese reactionaries to pulverize and dispose of the remains of the above-said victims is aimed to cover up the crimes perpetrated by the Japanese imperialists in the past and evade compensation for them.

Their racket over the “issue of remains”, “issue of abduction” and “human rights issue” is a revelation of such sinister intention. As clearly proved by the recent disclosure of the fact Japan has neither qualification and face nor any justification to say anything about the above-said issues.

The Korean people will certainly force the Japanese reactionaries to pay a dear price for this double crime.
