Issue of Comfort Women

In recent years, the Japanese Army’s system has been accused of coercing young women, the “comfort women” issue, to work as prostitutes in army field brothels.

However in 2007, the IWG, Interagency Working Group, embarked on gathering data and analyzing data in regards to the comfort women issue and Japanese War crimes. Over 8.5 million pages of records related to Japanese and Nazi war crimes have been identified among Federal Government records and opened to the public. In all, the IWG estimates that the implementation of the two Disclosure Acts cost taxpayers $30 million. Extensive and thorough research has been done but the evidence of the Japanese Army coercing Asian women into sex slavery were not found.

2007年に公表されたIWG(ナチス戦争犯罪と日本帝国政府の記録の各省庁作業班)のアメリカ議会宛て最終報告に明記されているように、7年近くかけて約3000万ドルをつぎ込んだ調査の結果、「慰安婦問題の犯罪性や性的奴隷化の証拠はどこにもない」旨がアメリカ議会にも提出されています。「日本軍が20万人のアジア女性を強制連行して性的奴隷にした」という主張はまったく根拠がありません。
