Asahi shinbun's apology needed on comfort women

The whole truth of the comfort women issue seems to be sought again. The diplomatic matter of comfort women between Japan and Korea started since The Asahi newspaper took up Seiji Yoshida's testimony in 1982 as the evidence of coercion of Japan's military. But Asahi admitted in 2014 fabrications in Yoshida's book and announced retraction of their articles. Yoshida claimed in his testimony that he obtained the evidence that Korean women were forcibly taken away to serve as comfort women by Japan's military. The book said that women in Chejudo, an island of South Korea, were beaten and lifted up to trucks by Japanese officers. The Asahi corrected on the same day another fabrication on investigation of facts around Fukushima. The picture above shows the scene of apology made by CEO of Asahi. They ought to know that every article from Asahi from now on would be under suspicion for a long time.

Fact being revealed: father of Park Geun-hye directly managing Korean Comfort women for UN/US

An inconvenient fact on comfort women after WWII has been growing as a big anxiety of South Korea. A member of opposing party of South Korea condemned the ruling party of South Korea for hiding secrets of Park Guen-hye, the current president of South Korea. What he found out was a signature of her father, a former president (1963-1979) of South Korea, on a document directing his policy on comfort women in bases of UN/US armies. According to the disclosure, the government of South Korea had run 62 places with 9,935 comfort women working in there. The document proposed a plan to build a bunch of condominiums to house them for promoting better hygiene.


There's another record printed in a newspaper (Dong-A Ilbo, 9/14, 1961) shown above reported registration of comfort women for serving to United Nations.  I didn't quite know the intention of the government of South Korea at that time, but found a clue: The New York Times recently published an article on Oct. 31th 2012, interviewing a sex slave who served to UN. According to her interview, the government of South Korea kept encouraging sex slaves to earn foreign currency. Isn't it a worse involvement than what Janapese government did to sex slaves during WWII? The current governement of South Korea shouldn't avert their eyes from them. They should make apologies to the sex slaves for forcibly drafting them to work in so-called comfort houses, if South Korea values human rights. If so, the government of Japan may reiterate apologies in an ashamed tone of voice. But it would never happen. Park Guen-hye would confess in no way that her father was the very person in charge of comfort women in the post Korean war period.
