Seoul court dismisses forced labor compensation case 

Sankei wrote that the Seoul Central District Court dismissed on Wednesday a suit filed in 2017 by the bereaved family of a former requisitioned worker seeking compensation from Mitsubishi Materials on the grounds that the statute of limitations for the civil case had expired in 2015. The daily interpreted the verdict as meaning that such lawsuits filed after the ROK Supreme Court ruling in October 2018 ordering a Japanese steel firm to pay redress to victims of forced labor may be rendered “invalid” on account of the expiration of the statute of limitations.
