その7—第5章 日本政府と日本軍の「関与」と「責任」について

慰安婦制度は、当時の国内法、国際法いずれから見ても合法的であり、したがって日本軍がそれに関与していたからと言って非難されるいわれは全くありません。

もしこの制度の下で被害者がいたとすれば、法を犯していたもののためです。確かに、甘言によって誘われた慰安婦もいました。しかし、甘言を以てだましたのは朝鮮人の周旋業者であり、日本軍ではありませんでした。日本政府、日本軍は悪徳業者を取り締まっていました。それでも騙された慰安婦はいたかもしれませんが、さらに、日本の官憲は女性が戦地や占領地に渡航する際、契約書の他に5種類の書類(酌婦営業許可書、承諾書、調査書、印鑑証明、戸籍謄本)の提示を求め、それらを厳重にチェックしていたことも認識すべきです。

インドネシアのスマラン事件のことが、日本軍の慰安婦強制の例としてとりあげられることがあります。しかし、これは軍の上層部の了解を得て作られた慰安所ではなく、いわば私設慰安所であったことが判明しています。上官に見つかったときに閉鎖されています。また、責任者は戦争裁判で有罪となっています。

インドネシア政府も慰安婦問題においてもっとも日本に融和的な態度を取っています。日本政府を非難したり、新たな要求を出したり、これは「女性の人権」の問題だと言い出したりしていません。旧宗主国であるオランダも同じ対応を取っています。

“Comfort Women” All Signed a Contract of Agreement
—Impact of the Ramseyer Article

Series No. 7: Chapter 5: On the “Involvement” and “Responsibility” of
The Japanese Government and the Japanese Army

The comfort women system was legal, both domestically and internationally, at that time. Therefore, the involvement of the Japanese army with this system cannot be cited as a violation of the law.

If there were victims of the comfort women system, it was because some one violated the law. It is true that some comfort women were deceived or threatened into becoming comfort women, but these were things that unscrupulous Korean recruiters did and not the Japanese army.

The Japanese army issued many notices that cracked down on recruitment by the unscrupulous. Furthermore, if women who had been deceived or kidnapped were headed for either active battle zones or occupied areas, Japanese authorities would have demanded the presentation of five documents (a license for prostitution, a letter of consent, a personal background report, a sealed certificate and a copy of a family register) in addition to a contract and thoroughly reviewed them. This was intended to prevent risky comfort women from working at comfort stations.

The “Semarang Incident” took place in Indonesia, in which Japanese army officers took women from internment camps for local residents to set up private comfort stations and had them entertain soldiers. But in this case, these were “private comfort stations” set up without the knowledge of the upper echelon of the local military. When these private comfort stations came to their superior attention, the comfort stations were ordered closed.

This incident shows that this was not a crime committed by the Japanese army but a crime committed by specific officers. In fact, the officers faced a war crime trial after the war and were convicted. Indonesia, where many of these “private comfort stations” were, displayed the most benign attitude to Japan in terms of the comfort women issue.

The Netherlands, Indonesia’s former colonial master, dealt with this issue in the same manner.
