Asahi admits their Ianfu stories were wrong
According to a comment to my blog, the PR bureau of the Asahi Shimbun replied to his question on the phone as follows:
- Seiji Yoshida's testimony that he abducted women was not a true story. The Asahi corrected the articles in 1997.
- It was not true that the Ianfu were forced into brothels as "Joshi Teishintai". The Asahi never reported it was true.
- The article on 11 Jan. 1992 did not say that the Army had abducted women.
