Japan: Model letter to Ministry of Foreign Affairs
In this letter Amnesty International highlights recommendations made in Japan's recent consideration under the Universal Periodic Review on ensuring justice for the survivors of Japan’s military sexual slavery system, euphemistically known as ‘comfort women’. The Japanese Government must accept full responsibility for these crimes and issue an unequivocal apology for the crimes committed against these women. Adequate and effective reparations must be provided to the survivors in line with international standards and an accurate account of the sexual slavery system must be included in educational textbooks on the Second World War.
