Report of the Special Rapporteur on contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance, Doudou Diène
Addendum*

MISSION TO JAPAN

(E/CN.4/2006/16/Add.2)

III. PRESENTATION OF THEIR SITUATION BY THE COMMUNITIES CONCERNED

D. The Koreans

59. Finally, concerning the most shameful form of discrimination endured by the Koreans -

the system of sexual slavery of Korean women put at the disposal of the Japanese military during the Second World War - only in 1991 did the Government of Japan recognize its responsibility in the establishment of this system. However, issues such as official apology, compensation and proper education about this tragic historical episode known as “comfort women” have still not been settled. The Special Rapporteur was even informed that, starting from next year, school textbooks will not include any reference to the “comfort women”.
