As one of Japanese researcher related to no political group or sect, I would like to make a comment herewith to point out some inconsistencies of the resolution, concluded in the European Parliament on December 13th. The "comfort women" issue assumed as the matter of fact in past -- more than 60 years before, needs much more research and verification including many existing counter evidences for conclusion. In fact, you should aware inconsistency that you have mixed the other subjects such as prostitutes human trafficking business actually occurred in China and South Korea with "comfort women" assumed as Japanese Military’s activity to the same theme. In Japan case, most of them had got higher salary than public Japanese people at that time with certain occupation exclude some of dreary exceptional incidents.
Needless to say, it as not happy thing itself but many examples of prostitute could be found in any country, related to the World War II. The case of prostitute in Japan was not capable for discussing as a unique problem. As the reason why you Amnesty International recommended it the European Parliament to proceed for conclusion of the resolution, your staff said to my colleague that no contact and no refutation had been made by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan. It is very dishonorable because the organization has already lost necessary function by particular reasons so far.
However, if I could explain as current situation of Japan, respecting the position of victorious nation of the World War II, Japan compensated every related nation in the past and confirmed its completion with peaceful diplomacy. In Japan, no reason exists to follow the resolution concluded in the European Parliament, If you have an opportunity to research the actual condition of prostitute in South Korea and China, you will actually find truly serious problems. In order to protect you Amnesty International’s honor, dignity, and true human rights in the world, you still need to review and to reexamine what is the truly questionable subject required for your discussion and recommendation. I would like you to give this sensitive matter of fact in your careful considerations. Write you later.
