Another document reveals Japan's wartime crimes

Date: 08/07/2020 | Source: Pyongyang Times | Read original version at source

Tokyo Shimbun recently reported that an official document on a Japanese germ warfare unit has newly been found.

The document specifies that the "anti-epidemic water-supply unit of the Kwantung Army" consisted of Unit 731 and five branches. It notes that the Dalian branch was involved mainly in research and production of germs till the end of the war. It also contains a table detailing investigation into four other branches and a sketch map showing all the branch units' activities before and after the defeat in the war.

A professor emeritus at Shiga University of Medicine said that the document made by the Japanese government after the end of the war revealed the structure of the "anti-epidemic water-supply unit of the Kwantung Army", posts of members of the branches and their activities before and after the defeat in the war. Noting this has proved for the first time the fact that the branch units also produced germs, the professor added that it is of great importance in verifying history.

As already known, Unit 731 is notorious across the world as the homicide unit of the Japanese imperialists that spearheaded and committed the cruel biochemical war crimes.

The murderers of Unit 731 stationed in Harbin of Heilongjiang Province, China, were provided with hundreds of people as guinea-pigs from the military police, killing lots of Koreans, Chinese and Russians through different kinds of brutal methods such as vivisection, freezing and injection of germs.

During their continental aggression, the Japanese imperialists organized such secret germ warfare units as Unit 100, Unit 516 and Unit Nami 8604 and were hell-bent on tests of toxic gas and all kinds of germ weapons. And when Japan was on the brink of defeat in the war, they worked desperately to sweep their crimes under the carpet.

Nevertheless, Japan is justifying their hideous crimes against the Korean and other Asian peoples without an iota of guilty conscience.

They resort to vicious retaliation on the victims of forced labour, far from making apology and reparations for them. Worse still, they insult the victims of state-sponsored sexual slavery as "moneymaking volunteers ".

They even built an exhibition hall totally denying the crimes the Japanese imperialists committed against humanity to make a mockery of the victims. Such moral inferiority and impudence peculiar to the island country are stunning the world.
