The compensation plan for forced labor is important in diplomacy, but violations of international law and unconstitutional rulings by Supreme Court must be corrected by the Constitutional Court.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs officially announced a solution for the forced labor reimbursement problem (hereafter referred to as a repayment plan) on the 6th, which calls for "third-party repayment."
In accordance, the "Japanese Compulsory Mobilization Victim Support Foundation" will pay the amount of the judgment as well as the delayed interest to 15 plaintiffs (3 survivors) who received a final ruling on compensation from the Supreme Court in 2018.
Moreover , the foundation will pay the plaintiffs in addition to other pending litigation related to forced labor .
Regarding the Yoon's government repayment plan, Prime Minister Kishida positively evaluated the relationship aimed at returning the Korea-Japan relationship to a healthy one. And considering the current international situation, cooperation between Korea, the U.S., and Japan is important, and the reflection and apology for colonial rule reaffirmed the position of the previous cabinet on historical awareness as a whole.
We believe that the repayment plan is an important decision by the government to promote the national interest in the face of the severe international situation.
In addition, considering the following points, which the government hopes to make every effort to take future measures for the repayment plan.
First, the history of the Japanese colonial era is essentially anti-Japanese political propaganda summoned by certain forces as a way to gain power.
North Korea , the pro-North Korean residents in Japan as well as other figures and organizations which espouse North Korea's juche ideology deeply involved in this are trying to overthrow the Republic of Korea with faburicated anti -Japanese sentiment.
Second, the government's statement that the repayment plan will also apply to plaintiffs who have won future conscription suits will raise considerable expectations for more than 1,000 plaintiffs pending litigation.
Therefore, it is highly likely that pro-North Korean fighters will take over the regime with them as they did in the Ferry Sewol disaster and the Itaewon crush accident.
Third, the Supreme Court's final ruling on compensation for forced labor in 2018 (chief judge Kim Neung-hwan, Supreme Court Chief Justice Kim Myung-soo) violates the 1965 Korea-Japan Basic Treaty.
In addition, it is completely contrary to the spirit of the Constitution (Article 6, Paragraph 1) that "treaties concluded and promulgated by the Constitution and international laws generally approved have the same effect as domestic laws."
It is encouraging that the international community of the United Nations, has expressed their welcome to the government's proposed repayment plan .
The problem is that even if the government succeeds with the 1998 Kim Dae Jung-Obuchi Joint Declaration, which aimed to improve Korea-Japan relations, and the Noh Muhyun government, which concluded that compensation for forced labor was included in the claim agreement in 2005,
the pro-North Korean factions have ignored the agreements.
Therefore, the government needs to focus more on changing the minds of people brainwashed by anti-Japanese sentiment.
We propose two suggestions.
One is a public debate on the Korea-Japan Claims Agreement involving international law experts from South Korea, Japan and other countries, as stated in the petition dated February 22, the other is that the Supreme Court's ruling is fundamentally unconstitutional.
We strongly urge Yoon Suk Yeol's government to make a strong decision and push firmly for this.
Solidarity for ending the Korea-Japan Conflict
