‘Comfort women’ in South Korea who serviced U.S. forces seek justice

MAR 4, 2017

On Jan. 20, the Seoul Central District Court partially affirmed the claims of Korean women who had been sex workers in “camp towns” adjacent to U.S. military bases in the 1960s and ’70s. The New York Times called it a “landmark ruling” because it was the first official acknowledgement that the legal rights of the women who supplied sexual services to U.S. base personnel were violated.

The court pointedly referred to the plaintiffs as “comfort women,” drawing a parallel with Japan’s more notorious system of wartime sexual servitude. In their lawsuit, the plaintiffs argued it was hypocritical of the state to provide comfort women for U.S. soldiers while excoriating Japan for its corresponding system.

“The army simply cannot and does not control what the civilian community makes available through its establishments near the army base installations…”
 . 
“The United State government has always formally declined and has formally prohibited the American service personal from frequenting prostitution or public association with prostitutes. That’s the official policy. The unofficial policy was simply look the other way while it goes on.
.
“the army base prostitution was under special control by the South Korean government (and the US army)”

HaHAHA, hypocrites.

Now, the US really need to “apologize” to Japan for unfair accusations ..

 

 

Soon after the Korean War broke out in 1950, brothels for Korean Army and UN Army were established and many comfort women were recruited. The brothels were operated by the Government of Korea or the Korian Army. The brothels were closed in 1954, after the cease-fire of the Korean War. However, the comofort women remained around the military bases because the American Army continued to stay in the South Korea after the cease-fire agreement.

The girls were called as comfort women or yang-gong-ju (western princess). The term of comfort women (慰安婦) were used in newspapers while yang-gong-ju is used as a disparaging word against them.

19610914un The left figure shows the article on September 14, 1961 in a Korean newspaper – The Dong-a Ilbo. As can be seen, the term of comfort woman (慰安婦) is used.

The article explains that Seoul Police began to accept the registration of comfort woman for UN and the number of comfort women for UN soldiers in Seoul is estimated at 819.

From this article, it is clear that Korea knew that a comfort woman meant a prostitute. If they considered that a comfort woman is a sex slave, they must have not used the term for girls who provide sex services to UN soldires.

 

122 Korean women who worked in the “base village” near the base camp of US Army as prostitutes after the Korea War, brought a class action lawsuit in the Seoul Central District Court on 25th June, 2014, seeking to the national compensation for the violation of human rights under the strict control as comfort women for US Army by the Government of Korea.

It is said that the Government of Korea involved in prostitutions by forcing diagnosis of sexually transmitted diseases to the comfort women for US Army.

According to an official document revealed by a member of the Parliament of Korea in November 2013, there were 62 base villages with 9,935 comfort women for US Army.
