Testimony about 'forcible taking away of women on Jeju Island': Judged to be fabrication because supporting evidence not found
Asahi Shimbun's article that retracts all the article about Seiji Yoshida.
We have made the judgment that the testimony that Yoshida forcibly took away comfort women on Jeju was a fabrication. We retract our articles on him. We were unable to uncover the falseness of his testimony at the time the articles were published. Although additional research was conducted on Jeju, we were unable to obtain any information that corroborated his testimony. Interviews with researchers have also turned up a number of contradictions regarding the core elements of his testimony.
