Prosecutors here in Korea have reopened a case involving a Japanese rock band's defamatory comments against Korean victims of Japan's wartime sexual slavery.
The Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office has resumed its investigation into CDs and lyrics mailed to the so-called "comfort women" in February of last year.
The package sent by the ultra-right-wing rock band "Scramble" contained songs and lyrics of death threats against the victims, in which it referred to the women as "prostitutes."
While the victims have since filed charges against the band, prosecutors were unable to successfully identify the senders and have formally requested the Japanese government's cooperation.
It, however, remains uncertain whether Tokyo will respond to the request.
