Comment: The news of denial suggests that the Japanese remains steadfast in their claim of no responsibility on the comfort women issue. The article is reliable since it is published in a prestigious newspaper, and will be used in my research.
Brown, Robert-Lamont. Feb. 1993. No Compensation for the Comfort Women. A Contemporary Review. bNet Resources. Viewed 13 September 2010 from http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m2242/is_n1525_v262/ai_13688648/pg_2/?tag=content;col1
Author, in his contemporary review about the compensation case for comfort women, detailed how the women were recruited into the sex slaves trade thru the death railway. Author claimed that evidences and records about comfort women were long kept in the archives of the Foreign Ministry. The publicity caused by enslaved women caused embarrassment to Japan that led to an apology from Secretary Kato. However, the review contends that there is still a denial from the government on the matter.
Comment: The review gave an insight on the details how the women were recruited into the brothels, and inspite of evidences found, the government of Japan still affirms its denial of responsibility. Trusted website, and article has been published.
Choi, in this paper, emphasized the call of the Korean government for an apology from the Japanese government on the offenses to women during WWII and a just compensation to them. Choi said continued refusal of the government creates a strain on diplomatic relationship of affected Asian governments.
Comment: The paper is convincing in terms of evidences presented. It has detailed responses of Japanese government, the response of Korea, other governments and of international organizations that keep on pressing the matter.
