ROK Supreme Court orders Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal to compensate victims of forced labor

NHK reported this afternoon that South Korea’s Supreme Court upheld today a lower court ruling that ordered Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corp. to compensate four South Koreans who were victims of forced labor during Japanese colonial rule. Noting that the GOJ believes that the issue of compensation for victims of forced labor was solved “completely and finally” under the bilateral treaty concluded after the diplomatic ties were normalized in 1965, the network said that today’s final ruling is expected to affect relations between Japan and South Korea in the future.
