Yoshiaki Yoshimi, a Chuo University historian and a respected expert in the topic, said the 529 documents he and other historians have compiled since 1993 contain proof the Japanese military and the government were directly involved in setting up and recruiting the girls and women from around Asia, often by deception and kidnapping.
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.
He said the women were clearly forcibly taken away and placed under slave-like conditions at the brothels. (Sunnex)

They were finally vindicated when Japanese historian Yoshiaki Yoshimi scoured the Japanese Defense Ministry's library and uncovered documents bearing the personal seals of Imperial Army officers that outlined the military's direct management of the so-called comfort stations.
Since 1993, Professor Yoshimi and other historians have compiled 529 documents - 30% of them from the Japanese Defense Ministry - containing proof that the Japanese military and government trafficked girls and women from Asia into sexual slavery.

Within weeks, original wartime documents confirming the military's involvement in the conscription of comfort women resurfaced publicly (Professor Yoshimi Yoshiaki of Chuo University had reviewed such documents in the course of his academic research and then retrieved them in light of the lawsuit).Japan's prime minister Miyazawa Kiichi then publicly expressed his personal regret first in Japan and then in an address to the South Korean president in January 1992.
