Victims of Sexual Slavery in S. Korea Demand Japanese PM Make Direct Apology
Pyongyang, February 1 (KCNA) -- Ri Ok Son and Kang Il Chul, south Korean victims of the sexual slavery for the Imperial Japanese Army, held a news conference in Tokyo on Jan. 26 to denounce the Japanese authorities for covering up the crimes related to sexual slavery, according to the south Korean Kyunghyang Daily News.

The victims said that they were forcibly drafted for sexual slavery and subject to all disgrace and pain.

They said that the south Korean and Japanese authorities "agreed" on the issue of the sexual slavery with a petty amount of money, ignoring the victims.

They shouted that nobody can pull down the girl statue before the Japanese embassy in Seoul.

They said what they want is for the Japanese prime minister to personally kneel down and make an apology and legal reparation for the crimes related to sexual slavery for the Imperial Japanese Army.
