Pyongyang, November 9 (KCNA) -- As sexual abuses against children are rampant in Japan, a UN Human Rights special rapporteur made a field survey of them recently.
After an eight-day survey, she disclosed that sexual abusers are
neither investigated nor brought to justice in Japan unless victims file
suits against them and though criminals stand trial they are only given
a suspended sentence or punished with a light fine.
Asserting that criminal acts are unabated due to such light
punishment laws allowing sexual abuses against children socially and
institutionally, she urged the Japanese authorities to further tighten
This is living evidence proving the poor human rights performance in Japan.
Cases of heinous acts such as rape and flesh traffic against
children have occurred in an unbroken chain and such criminal acts are
openly perpetrated through internet.
A few years ago, a policeman in Osaka City raped a teenager girl in broad daylight, sparking off a public uproar.

Even policemen pay no attention to sexual abuses against children.
As seen above, Japan is the worst human rights abuser which has
completely disregarded the issue of protection of children, a matter
pending the most urgent solution in the field of human rights.
Great irony is that Japan is impudently taking issue with the DPRK over its human rights performance.
It is seeking to put pressure upon the DPRK and get a chance of reinvasion under the pretext of "human rights."
No country will believe its claim as it has neither face nor qualifications to talk about human rights.
The Japanese authorities would be well advised to stop taking issue
with someone's "human rights" issue but properly protect their children.
