UN High Commissioner criticizes Japan for failing to redress wartime sex slave issue Updated: 2014-08-07 06:33:58 KST

Now, another high-profile voice has spoken up on Japan's lack of repentance for its past wrongdoings
The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights has harshly criticized Japan's approach to the issue of its wartime sexual slavery.
In a statement Wednesday, Navi Pillay said the Tokyo has failed to pursue a "comprehensive, impartial and lasting resolution" for the elderly surviving victims of its wartime atrocities.
She added that the women rights continue to be violated to this day as the rights of the victims to justice and reparation are not realized.
She also says it pains her to see that the victims are passing away one by one, without having their rights restored.
The Korean government is also urging Japan sincerely reflection and take responsible measures to resolve the matter.
