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)

Yoshiaki Yoshimi, a Chuo University historian and a well-respected expert in the topic, said the 529 pieces of documents he and his fellow 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 to use as "comfort women," often by deception and kidnapping.
Nearly 190 of the documents came from Japan's Defense Ministry archives, more than 40 from foreign militaries and governments, 60 from Taiwan, he said. Court documents from Japan, as well as investigation results by the government of Netherlands, a former colonizer of Indonesia, are also included. He said the women were clearly forcibly taken away and placed under slave-like conditions at the comfort stations.
