Opinion of Japanese legal experts on the verdict of S. Korea Supreme court regarding forced wartime labor:
Too easy. Legal experts of Korean ancestry?
Who are you fooling.

Oh please. Read between the lines.
They are not against the result of the Japanese investigation. They are against the process/method.
Renault would have nipped it in the bud, had they known about the accusations against Gibson. They wouldn’t have been public.
The Gohsn affair exposed Renault itself and the French Unions are asking for deep investigations too.

So he was 19 years old when this happened.
Old enough to be a Police officer but too young to have his name revealed to the public because he’s still considered a “minor”.
What a conundrum.

Sorry Ghosn can’t order people here. This is not Nissan/Renault Headquarters.
He is in detention. No special favors will be given to him.
He needs to stop saying that he revived Nissan. He just fired tens of thousand or people and reported the salaries not paid as profits. That’s it.
He needs to stop with the Messiah complex.
By the way, keep insulting the Japanese Justice system. I am not sure they will show leniency from now on.

Ghosn got too comfortable throughout the years, acted like a dictator and is now paying for it.
Both sides (French and Japanese) were plotting but the Japanese got swift enough and beat them.

This poor woman was abused during the war and ended up being abused in her later years by S Korea, her own country, who used her as a political tool, almost 70 years after the end of said-war.
I pray she is finally at peace.

Ghosn’s misdeeds are all over the news in France at the moment.
The CGT (French Union) is asking for all his spending review.
Ghosn even hired/paid family members who never set foot or worked for Renault/Nissan.
His secret is out.

Yes. S.Korea is shifting the blame.
Why is Moon quiet when Korean citizens are suing his government?
Give them their share of the 800 millions and all will be well.
We are yet to hear his speech about a Korean group of 1,103 former forced laborers and their families said it had filed a lawsuit demanding the South Korean government provide 100 million won ($88,500) to each of them in compensation because it had received funds from Japan.

@Do the hustle
But, they are not being charged with disturbing the peace. They are being charged with trespassing in a public place. If the charges were destruction of property it even vandalism I could understand
Really? It seems like the trespassing charge is the result of them disturbing the peace and violating the general licence given to the general public AKA the permission to enter the premises in order to pray and visit the museum without creating troubles for other, refusing to leave and resisting arrest.

Interesting that is private property, but representatives of the state paid by tax money visit there, while in their capacity as public servants. That seems to indicate a mixing of state and religion interest. how does that work?
The same way Mayors,senators and governors,members of the Democratic or Republican Party decide jointly to attend a yearly Memorial service for WWI or WWII Falken soldiers at a Church.
See? It’s easy like that.

So when they don't like you they can claim you as trespasser whenever they like.
Who told you they didn’t like them? The shrine people didn’t even know who those Chine were.
They flew to Japan with the intent to disturb the peace and create mayhem in a place of prayer.
They were rightfully charged for it.

Trespassing? Last time I checked, Yasukuni is open to public.
Despite being open to the public, Yasukuni is still a private property.
You can’t disturb the peace/stage a protest in a private property. This is a violation.

They need to stop whining.
They flew to a country with the intent to trespass on people’s property and start an arson.
If you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime.

We got an answer from them. However, it was not from the company itself, but from a contract security guard," lawyer Lim Jae Sung told reporters.
Good. And they should forever pay you dust.
Go ask your government what happened to the 1965 compensation.

"It is possible that North Korea will in the future push its demands for compensation for Japanese colonial rule by referring to the same ruling.
The Japan-North Korea Pyongyang Declaration of 2002 states that both sides agreed to discuss the issue of property and claims in talks to normalize their ties "pursuant to the basic principle that when the bilateral relationship is normalized both...would mutually waive all their property and claims and those of their nationals that had arisen from causes which occurred before August 15, 1945."
This is why Japan should stay away from the peninsula or their reunification plan. Abe should stop picking up Moon calls for help.
The Japanese should focus on themselves and leave the Koreans fend for themselves.

LOL all these clueless comments about K wave being past and Japan being an important market. BTS has leapfrogged over Japan a long time ago. They're far more popular in the US, Europe and South America. Japan is a blip for these guys. They're not my cup of tea but welcome to 2018.
LOL back at you.
And yet the K-music industry needs Japan to survive. About 70% of their revenues come from selling their music and touring in Japan.
Were will BTS be in two years when all the hype dies?

The former mayor (who passed away in December, weeks after allowing this statue) was of Chinese descent.
His father fought the Korean War.
It looks like he had an agenda.

Never going to matter.
1-If 0.001% of the S.Korean go against it, the current president will tell Tokyo that the atonement/Money is not enough.
2-The future President (after the current one) will renege on the Treaty and ask for a new one.
This will never end. Let it go and let the Koreans fend for themselves in the future.

The Japanese government has begun discussing how the Self-Defense Forces would respond to a military conflict on the Korean Peninsula.
Why? Is this why Abe wants to change the Constitution?The Japanese should mind their own business and let the Koreans fight among themselves. Unless their really want the same Koreans to come around and accuse Japan of killing their fellow countrymen and ask for reparations.

So the Japanese had to fork the money to private schools whose priorities are to teach / preserve the language and culture of their #1 enemy who swore to destroy their country?

Visit for what? Ratify another treaty that will be rescinded in few weeks because the Korean people are not "emotionally" ready to accept it?
Those fake smiles are irritating.

A little background of the Mayor Edwin Mah Lee:
His parents immigrated to the United States from Taishan, Guangdong Province, China in the 1930s. Lee's father, Gok Suey Lee, fought in the Korean War.
This should explain a lot.
