Japan Denies Wartime Forced Sexual Slavery Despite Court Documents

Japan has again denied its wartime forced sexual slavery despite the release of court documents revealing that the Japanese army brought hundreds of women to Indonesia as sex slaves and that they were threatened through violent means.
Japan’s Kyodo News said Monday that the nation's National Archives and the Ministry of Justice submitted documents to the Cabinet disclosing that the Japanese army was involved in the forced mobilization of sex slaves during World War Two.
However, Japan’s Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Koichi Hagiuda said in a briefing Wednesday that the documents, written during the post-war trials on Japan’s wartime crimes, don't directly show that the army systematically mobilized sex slaves.
He said that including the documents, the Japanese government has found no material to date that shows that the army and the government forcibly mobilized sex slaves.
