Mainichi reported today from Seoul that the governor of North Chungcheong Province of South Korea has asked the local assembly to rewrite an ordinance it enacted earlier on the grounds that the decree may have adverse effects on a WTO case made by the South Korean government regarding Japan’s tighter control of semiconductor materials. The ordinance designates Japanese firms involved in forced labor before and during WWII as “war crime enterprises” and calls for a boycott of their products.
