Prof. Yamashita strongly criticized “UN Special Rapporteur’s Report
on the Right to Freedom of Opinion and Expression in Japan”
at UN Human Rights Committee

Professor David Kaye, United Nations Special Rapporteur, issued a “Preliminary Observations on the Right to Freedom of Opinion and Expression in Japan” at a press conference held on April 16, 2016 in Tokyo
The Preliminary Observations contained numerous serious errors, and these errors could be perpetuated as truths should the report be finalized in its current form.
On January 25, 2017, ‘Viewers and Listeners for Legal Compliance in Broadcasting’ sent an “Open Letter” to Prof. Kaye.
On February 20, 2017, the ‘Alliance for Truth about Comfort Women,’ which is comprised of 15 private organizations, also sent an open letter to Professor Kaye, with carbon copies to the UN High Commissioners for Human Rights and President of the Human Rights Council.
On May 2, 2017, the “Academic Alliance for Correcting Groundless Criticisms of Japan” sent a letter to David Kay to admonish the “Preliminary Report”.
However, the final report submitted to the UN Human Rights Committee by David Kay completely ignored those criticism which pointed out serious errors in facts.
Prof. Ymashita Eiji, who drafted the above letter by the “Academic Alliance” made a formal speech to strongly criticize David Kay’s “Final Report on the Right to Freedom of Opinion and Expression in Japan” at the UN Human Rights Committee on June 12, 2017 with 1500 words written statement.
