Japan forced 500,000 women into prostitution: Will Southeast Asia push for justice?

After 75 years, the survivors of Japanese war crimes of rape and forced prostitution in Southeast Asia have yet to see justice. ASEAN countries can play a decisive role in this ongoing issue.By Griselda MolemansApart from their collective socio-economic goals, the ASEAN countries share a dark past.

    Their feet were not on the right paths.You cannot sow bloodshed and reap peace, you cannot cheat the law of cause and effect. You cannot sow the desire for material power and then expect to escape the consequences. Sow peace, and peace will arise.If you seek to build the world, ignoring the Law of the Great Spirit, you must have chaos and disorder and you become bankrupt.

  3. The Dutch comford women must even ” work” harder than the Japanes.Because 250 persons for 25000 Dutch troops .And the Japanese 500.000 is for 3 milliion.

    The Dutch and the Japanese had their feet not on the right paths and tried to cheat the law of cause and effect.

    The Law is so finely balanced and so perfect that there can be no cheating.Not one person escapes his punishment, and not one loses his reward.
