Who should give any credence to Ikuhiko Hata, a mouthpiece for the revisionist regime in Tokyo?
Japan’s systemic abuse of women in its WWII rape camps, euphemistically known as “comfort stations,” was one of the most heinous war crimes in the 20th century. It was thoroughly investigated and documented by the U.N., international scholars and historians, including 6 U.N. resolutions and reports by two special rapporteurs of the U.N. High Commission on Human Rights. Recent reports of wartime abuses of French women in Indochina and testimonies of Korean, Dutch, Filipino and Chinese victims in US congress, European Union Parliament, and UN have offered solid proof of Japan’s heinous war crimes.
Abe and his cronies still decry lack of evidence of their government involvement in the “comfort woman” system. They should read former Japanese Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone’s memoir: he, as a young navy lieutenant, “procured women” through the military acquisition process in 1942 to “mitigated the mood” of his troops.

It is nothing more than ad hominem attacks. Hata is actually in the position that Rape of Nanking was real. So we should stop give credit to his opinion in this regard either.
