Armed with documents, WW II sex-slaves demand apology from JapanBreaking News
tags: World War II, Japan, sex slaves
Five former victims of Japan's wartime sex slavery and their supporters submitted hundreds of official documents to the government Monday, demanding Prime Minister Shinzo Abe acknowledge Japan's past atrocity and formally apologize....
Japan apologized in 1993 over the "comfort women" system of military prostitutes before and during World War II, but it insists there is no proof the women were systematically coerced by the government, citing the lack of official Japanese documents stating so.
The Cabinet in an Abe-led government in 2007 underscored the lack of proof. Abe recently promised Japan won't change its 1993 apology, but is re-examining the study that was the basis of the apology.
