N Korea confirms missile test designed for submarine launch

  N Korea confirms missile test designed for submarine launch SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea announced Wednesday that it had tested a newly developed missile designed to be launched from a submarine, the first such weapons test in two years and one it says will bolster its military’s underwater operational capability. The test Tuesday was the fifth missile launch since September and came as North Korea steps up pressure on Washington and Seoul to abandon what Pyongyang sees as hostile polices such as joint U.S.-South Korea military drills and international sanctions on the North.

A Japanese court on Thursday is hearing from five people who say there were promised “paradise on Earth” in North Korea but suffered human rights violations instead and now want the country and its leader Kim Jong Un to compensate them. Today, about half a million ethnic Koreans live in Japan and still face discrimination in school, work and their daily lives. The court case was brought in 2018 by five participants who ultimately defected back to Japan — four ethnic Koreans and a Japanese woman who joined the program with her Korean husband and their daughter.

Japan provided South Korea with 0 million grant in economic aid and 0 million in loans together with 0 million in loans for private trust, a total of 0 million as "reparation fee" that Japan had to pay for their illigal occupation.[8] The official policy of Japanese governments has been that, in regard to There has been a constant call from the Korean public (and to some extent, Japanese with left or liberal political leaning) that Japan should compensate Korean individuals who suffered from Japanese colonial rule. The Japanese government has refused to do so, arguing that it settled issues

TOKYO (AP) — A Japanese court on Thursday is hearing from five people who say there were promised “paradise on Earth” in North Korea but suffered human rights violations instead and now want the country and its leader Kim Jong Un to compensate them.

Plaintiffs and their supporters walk toward the Tokyo District Court Thursday, Oct. 14, 2021, in Tokyo.

The hearing became possible after the Tokyo District Court in August agreed to summon Kim Jong Un to speak, according to Kenji Fukuda, a lawyer representing the plaintiffs. They are not expecting Kim to appear or to compensate them if the court orders it, but Fukuda hopes the case can set a precedent for negotiations between Japan and North Korea on seeking the North’s responsibility and normalizing diplomatic ties.

Chinese-North Korean defectors face hardship in South Korea

  Chinese-North Korean defectors face hardship in South Korea GWANGYANG, South Korea (AP) — Abandoned, he feels, by three countries, Cho Guk-gyeong shows a visitor his South Korean alien registration card, which describes him as “stateless.” It’s an apt description for what his life is like in South Korea, 15 years after he fled North Korea. Most North Korean defectors to the South are ethnically Korean, but Cho, 53, is a third-generation Chinese immigrant. While ethnically Korean defectors are entitled by law to a package of benefits designed to help their resettlement in South Korea, Cho can’t receive that support because he maintained his Chinese nationality in North Korea, even though his family has lived there for generations.

Korea was a Japanese colony from 1910 until Japan ’s surrender in 1945. The ruling could apply to pending cases involving other companies accused of using forced labor. The court said there was nothing in postwar agreements or international law that prevented individual victims from seeking redress. The verdict could open the floodgates for other victims and their relatives to file lawsuits against an estimated 300 Japanese companies accused of using forced labor during the colonial era. Hundreds of thousands of Koreans were forced to work for Japan ’s war efforts in Japan , China and

A Seoul court has ordered a Japanese steel company to pay more than ,000 to four South Koreans for forced labor and unpaid wages during World War II. But if you think of a life of a forced laborer and the time he lost, they shouldn't," Nakata Mitsunobu, who helped two South Korean citizens in their lawsuits in Japan , said at a press conference in Seoul. "I think the court decision will lead to recovering rights of many other victims under the Japanese colonial rule of Korea ," activist Ueda Keisi said.

Hundreds of thousands of Koreans came to Japan, many forcibly, to work in mines and factories during Japan's colonization of the Korean Peninsula — a past that still strains relations between Japan and the Koreas.

In 1959, North Korea began a massive resettlement program to bring overseas Koreans home and to make up for workers killed in the Korean War. The program continued to seek recruits, many of them originally from South Korea, until 1984.

Comfort women were women and girls forced into being sex slaves by the Imperial Japanese Army in occupied countries and territories before and during World War II.

I'm not Japanese nor Koreans , so my answer would mean little to most Japanese or even Koreans or even their governments. (I'm a Manchu Descent). But I would suggest them to start a 「返品法」or 「반품 법」, it is basically somewhat similar to Israel's Aliyah (עֲלִיָּה‎) Or the The Law of Return Or Ascent. Growing Medical Woes: Japan ’s Healthcare Expenditures Rise to Record ¥42.6 Trillion. People being born now will have a crushing tax burden put on them. Or else the old and the sick will have vital services they need the most (and they paid for ) stripped away from them - and nobody is

North Korea had promised free healthcare, education, jobs and other benefits, but none was available and the returnees were mostly assigned manual work at mines, forests or farms, one of the plaintiffs, Eiko Kawasaki, 79, a Korean who was born and raised in Japan, said last month.

North Korea’s Missile Test Belies Grave Problems at Home

  North Korea’s Missile Test Belies Grave Problems at Home Despite the provocative test and assertions of strength and power, the regime of Kim Jong Un faces perhaps an unprecedented crisis.The timing of the apparent ballistic missile launch was predictable, coming amid a meeting in Seoul also on Tuesday of intelligence chiefs from Japan, South Korea and the U.S. to discuss new potential overtures to Pyongyang. South Korea's military suspects North Korean forces launched the missile from a submarine in waters to the east of the mainland and it ultimately fell into the Sea of Japan. Other analysts suggest the launch may have originated from a barge.

There is a reason why the North Korea situation is a decade-long stalemate, and Trump has nothing new to contribute. It is pivotal to maintain the south Koreans and the Japanese as a strong US Ally. All while your president is impeached and one of your largest corporations suffers one failure after another. They just aren't going to pay for their portion twice.

Israel has used Pfizer and the International Court of Justice has accepted a requirement that 80% of recipients with pneumonia should be injected with this gene therapy. Despite this alarming development, Pfizer continued to develop its mRNA for Covid, without animal testing. First stage only. As probably - just like in case of President Trump - supreme courts will say: "This case has no standing". Next stage: What to do, when justice institutions became completely bought & paid for and unable to represent The Rights of The People?

Today, about half a million ethnic Koreans live in Japan and still face discrimination in school, work and their daily lives.

The court case was brought in 2018 by five participants who ultimately defected back to Japan — four ethnic Koreans and a Japanese woman who joined the program with her Korean husband and their daughter.

“None of us would have gone” if we had known the truth about North Korea, Kawasaki said. She was confined to North Korea for 43 years until defecting in 2003, leaving behind her grown children.

The plaintiffs are demanding 100 million yen ($900,000) each in compensation from North Korea.
