Seoul mulling launch of fund to compensate requisitioned workers

Yomiuri took up the disclosure by a source on Japan-ROK relations that the Moon administration is looking into the idea of establishing a fund to compensate Korean citizens requisitioned by Japanese companies to work during the colonial rule of the Korean Peninsula. According to the article, the launch of the fund is premised upon Japanese firms’ compliance with Korean court rulings ordering them to compensate the victims. Koreans who would receive compensation from the envisaged fund would be individuals who have not participated in the ongoing civil suits. The papers speculated that the GOJ might not endorse the alleged proposal on the grounds that the issue was settled more than half a century ago.
