South Koreas labor appeal in World War II

 South Koreas labor appeal in World War II

According to the Korean Herald, the two South Korean workers who appealed were Yang Keum deok and Lee Chun Shik. They were forced to work in Japanese steel mills during the Japanese colonial rule of Korea from 1910 to 1945. The two victims called on the Japanese government to apologize to the victims of the war and pay compensation for their suffering.

When I think of Japanese people treating Korean compatriots like livestock, Im very angry, Yang said at a news conference in Seoul, South Korea I hope Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe kneels down and apologizes to me and my fellow victims as soon as possible.

On October 30, 2018, the Supreme Court of South Korea awarded Japanese company Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corp. compensation to four World War II workers including Li Junzhi, the first ruling on forced labor. However, Japanese enterprises did not take any action to enforce the courts ruling.

According to the surging news (www.thepaper. CN), the two governments had intended to negotiate on the issue of forced labor in wartime, but both ended in failure. The Supreme Courts decision in October triggered a series of retaliatory actions by Japan in July this year, announcing measures to restrict the export of semiconductor materials to South Korea and excluding South Korea from the white list countries with preferential trade status.

During Japans colonial rule on the Korean Peninsula, about 261000 South Koreans were forced to work by Japan, the Korean Herald reported. There is no official data to confirm how many of them are still alive.
