  1. A viable and quick solution is for the plaintiff to suit and demand compensations from the South Korean government who had already held the fund from Japan, aimed specifically for wartime labours. Case resolved and closed.

  2. Japanese government tried to compensate each victoms themselves, it was korean government to insist they would pay themselves the money but money was used in their economic development and may be in politicians pocket too. Does money settles every thing? (Rape, murder, labour) Does money give you justice? #By_the_way_im_not_japanese
