Japan Hit for Denying Crimes Related to Sexual Slavery
Pyongyang, March 12 (KCNA) -- There took place a meeting in Glendale City, California on Mar. 8 to denounce Japan for denying the crimes related to sexual slavery and trying to revive militarism, according to Minjok Thongsin, an internet paper of Koreans in the U.S. on Mar. 9.

Present at the meeting were Koreans in the U.S. and members of a women's human rights organization of the U.S.

Speakers accused Japanese ultra-right forces of working hard to remove the statue of a "comfort girl," which lays bare Japan's crimes related to sexual slavery, in Glendale City.

They said that Japan committed unprecedented crimes, mercilessly trampling on the dignity and rights of Korean and other Asian women in the past.

The victims of the sexual slavery have suffered mental and physical pains all their lives, but Japan has so far made no apology and reparation, they charged.

Japan should be condemned for its war crimes, they said, calling upon countries of the world not to overlook Japan keen on the moves to deny its past crimes, distort history and revive militarism, they said.

There also took place a demonstration in Los Angeles on the same day to denounce Japan's unethical crimes and demand the women's rights. It was attended by members of women's organizations and peace organizations.
