No Statute of Limitations to Japanese Imperialists' Past Crime

Pyongyang, November 25 (KCNA) -- Recently the UN body issued a report urging Japan to take a proper attitude toward the settlement of the issue of its past sexual slavery.

The report first demanded that the issue of sexual slavery for the Imperial Japanese Army be investigated in a substantial, independent and fair way, all the available evidence disclosed and perpetrators indicted and punished, second that the victims of the sexual slavery and their families fully compensated and third that the issue of sexual slavery be included in the textbooks and all attempts to insult the victims or deny the issue be stopped.

The UN body had published such a report in 2014.

This shows that the world has recognized the fact that Japan enforced the most cruel modern-day sexual slavery system in the past and demanded its settlement.

The sexual slavery, with which Japan forced a large number of women from most of Asia, including 200 000 Korean women, to become sexual slaves for the Imperial Japanese Army and took them to the war theatres to inflict all sorts of inhumane atrocities on them, is a hideous inhuman crime that can never be pardoned no matter how much water may flow under the bridge and no matter how many generations may be replaced with new ones.

However, the successive reactionary rulers of Japan have totally denied the past crimes, far from reflecting on them, and even set this stand as a national policy.

They openly trumpet that there is no need to have guilty conscience about the past, the postwar generations making up 80 percent of Japan's population should not be fated to make an apology and there is no longer apology for the past history.

Worse still, they rubbed salt in the wound of the victims, asserting that the sexual slavery was "a voluntary act by prostitutes for money".

To top it all, they are scheming to erase their crime-woven history of sexual slavery from the textbooks.

No matter how desperately the Japanese reactionaries may try, they can neither cover up the unethical crimes of abducting and kidnapping hundreds of thousands of Asian women and forcing the disgraceful sexual slavery on them nor evade the responsibility for them.

The Japanese reactionaries are now attempting to repeat the past crimes on the Korean peninsula through the revival of militarism.

They are zealous to join in the moves to provoke a war of aggression against the DPRK in collusion with the U.S. imperialists while persistently seeking to turn Japan into a military giant and nuclear-armed country.

In addition, they are intensifying the political suppression and persecution of Koreans in Japan and their descendants to incite confrontation with the DPRK across Japanese society.

The sexual slavery committed by a group of impudent barbarians bereft of elementary human ethics must be liquidated without fail as it is a high-profile crime with no statute of limitations in view of the international law. -0-
