From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Victims sue Seoul for sex-slavery deal

Wednesday 31st August 2016

SOUTH KOREA: Twelve victims of sex slavery at the hands of the Japanese army in WWII said yesterday they will sue the government over its settlement with Tokyo.

The so-called “comfort women” filed a lawsuit against the government for signing the agreement with Tokyo even though Japan refuses to acknowledge formal legal responsibility for the slavery.

Each of them is seeking 100 million won (£68,000), the same sum Japan has offered them in compensation.
