Comfort Women Questions And Answers
I don't understand why this issue was raised lately again.
And It's been getting more and more complicated.
So I'd like all viewers to review it, and know it well if you don't.
It's fairly easy, very simple story.
Question 1: What are the comfort women all about ?
Let's put it this way.
Answer 1: During world war 2 Japanese army and or govt organ organically abducted mostly Korean
women, and forced them to be prostitutes and release soldiers' sexual frustrations.
However govt didn't try to take any responsibility to that.
That's all it is. But I wonder if it's true.
Question 2: Then were Korean women really abducted with coercion ?
Answer 2: Until now concrete grounds that prove abductions haven't been seen.
It's very hard to prove what didn't acrually happen. But if an evidence of a fact hasn't been
submitted, there would be nothing to blame for and or to accuse of.
Then when we think whether there have been concrete evidences or not, we can't find anything.
There has been no evidence.
Question 3: Then what could be the evidences of this issue ?
Answer 3: They are as follows:
1. Documents describing army and or authorities were involved with abductions
2. Proved victim's testimony
3. Proved criminal's testimony
4. Proved witness's testimony
If only one of these evidences is submitted, we would admit the fact of this issue.
Question 4: Is there any document that proves the fact ?
Many people have been wondering why, but actually there is no such document.
Answer4: This was clarified by ex-chief cabinet secretary Yohei Kono on Jun 17th 1997 where he
stated the documents that proved abductions hadn't been found.

Then he had already been known for so called 'Kono statements' in that he had admitted
the broad coercion on the prostitutes.
Question5: There should be a lot of victims' testimonies or mere commercial prostitution couldn't
be like this big issue ?
The answer is,
Answer5: Japanese govt interviewed 16 ex-prostitutes for investigation, who had been
selected by the Pacific War Victims Association but the govt didn't even try to
validate or confirm the result of the investigation.
At this point everyone may feel strange that Japanese govt didn't select them by itself,
but anti-Japan Korean entity did. That's to say the first step of the investigation was biased.
Moreover the govt tried to make the investigation spontaneous leaving the result not validated or
confirmed. To make matters worse, ex-lawyer Mizuho Fukushima et al were present there, and none of
testimonies' names and interview contents has been given out. It's hard to think that we can get
proved evidences through such an irresponsible investigation.
The innovative lawyers, calling themselves witnesses, controled the victims' talks so they were
able to prevent the govt from getting useful information for a validation.
Those witnesses were afraid that the victims could speak too much and give the govt information
possibly leading to undesirable result. That's why they had to lead testimonies as they wanted
when answering the questions. And besides the govt itself weren't unmotivated for that
investigation. Despite numbers of testimonies they got, from only 16 victims though, it's ovbious
every single testimony wasn't the proved one. Then what about Korean side ?

There were 155 women who registered as ex-prostitutes. 74 among them were alive in 1992 and a
citizen group called the Council for Measure of the Issue of South Korean Volunteer Corps, this
name itself contains misconception, have 55 women as registrants. The council was able to get in
touch with about 40 women among these 55 and interviewed them. Then it published the result of
interviews as the testimony collection and that was translated in Japanese.
Korean Foreign Ministry assured the book covered all facts of the comfort women. Since then the book has been
the powerful card for Koreans. The detail investigations were done with this book later and even
the Korean citizen group found a lot of conflicts, omissions, errors and distortions. Actually
in the book were only 19 womens' testimonies.
The story is, among all registrated Korean ex-prostitutes who were alive, there were about 40
women the citizen group was able to get in touch. Since they found what many of those women said
were completely wrong, they came to know the testimonies weren't at all reliable enough to be
published. Thus they had to get rid of more than half of the testimonies. As the result there
were only 19 women among all, whose testimonies were identified as the facts. But there were only
4 women whose testimonies were identified as the facts of coerced abductoins. You know what, 2
of them said they were taken to brothels in Toyama and Busan, where brothels weren't installed,
in other words enough validation wasn't done by Korean side. These women should have been removed
from the victim registrants. Only 2 women were left as real victims, they are Kim Haksoon and
Moon Okchu. But the fact was, Kim's mother sold her in 40yen as a prostitute called kiseng.

Moon was deceived by a Korean calling himself Sung who told her to work in a restaurant, and she
was forced to be a prostitute in Burma. After all they weren't coerced prostitutes either.
But being pointed out of their testimonies later, they changed their testimonies.
A changed testimony isn't trustworthy at all. That's all about this issue. How do you think ?
There has been no victim's reliable testimony. None of all registered ex-prostitutes' testimonies
hasn't been reliable at all.
