More than one-third of the documents came from Japanese Defense Ministry archives. Dozens were obtained from foreign militaries and governments, including U.S., China and Taiwan, and the Netherlands - a former colonizer of Indonesia. A document recently discovered in a Justice Ministry archive showed a cover-up by a military police official using the military budget, Yoshimi said.
