In the labor lawsuit in which South Korea's final judgment ordered Japan's Nippon Steel & Sumitomo to pay compensation, the plaintiff's attorney said at a rally in Seoul on February 14 that he would not negotiate for the Nikkei As soon as this month, the company that has been detained will be turned into cash in the Korean assets. In response, the Japanese government is raising vigilance and some analysts believe that Japan will take countermeasures.
The Japanese Kyodo News reported on February 15 that the plaintiff's attorney also mentioned that it was possible to proceed with the temporary enforcement of the asset seizure of another defendant's company. Regarding the lawsuit that Biaoyue became the defendant, the company that lost the first and second trials appealed, the South Korean Supreme Court is hearing the case, but it is unlikely that the appeal will be changed in the appeal, and the plaintiff will take measures to ensure assets before the final judgment. Action becomes possible.
The plaintiff's attorney and other lawyers planned to go to the headquarters of Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Kim on the 15th and asked the other party to agree to conduct compensation-oriented negotiations. The move is aimed at realizing cash through advance warnings and pressure to force Nippon Steel & Sumitomo to agree to negotiate.
Citizens' groups that require the Japanese government and companies to apologize and compensate the former workers in Korea. In order to solve the problem of strong brakes and clearing the history of Japan, a rally was held in front of the Japanese Embassy in Seoul.
Participants requested that Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Kim fulfill their judgments and compensate the formerly recruited workers.
The Japanese government has stepped up its vigilance on the trend on the 14th, in view of the fact that the South Korean plaintiff or the Japanese assets will be detained. Japan will pay attention to whether the Korean government will take action to prevent liquidation. If the defendant company suffers actual losses, Japan's attitude towards South Korea will surely be harder.
For the final judgment of the Supreme Court of South Korea, Japan has consistently expressed its opposition to the arbitrariness of the claim that it violated the Japan-Korea Claims Agreement, which has resolved the issue of the right to claim in the colonial era (Prime Minister Shinzo Abe) ). If the assets of Nippon Steel & Sumitomo are realized, it is expected that Japan may adopt countermeasures including raising tariffs on Korean imports. However, many opinions suggest that the liquidation process takes several weeks. The Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs said: Even if the procedures are initiated in South Korea, no countermeasures will be taken immediately.
The Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yu Yiwei expressed his concern at the press conference on the 14th at the press conference. The Japanese government intends to warn South Korea again that if the company actually suffers losses, it will not hesitate to take countermeasures and urge the government to break the deadlock in the government.
Kyodo News analyzed that the South Korean warship was accused of illuminating the fire control radar on the Self-Defense Force aircraft. This month, the Korean National Assembly President Wen Xixiang advocated that the Japanese emperor's apology would solve the problem of comfort women and lead to opposition from Japan. The trend of the labor lawsuit may make the deterioration of Japan-Korea relations uncontrollable.
In the Japanese government and the ruling party, there has been a request for an increase in tariffs on Korean imports. Regarding the discussion on countermeasures, Yan Yiwei said at the press conference that it would reveal our cards and therefore refused to answer. He also said that the policy of strengthening proper response will remain unchanged, emphasizing that he will face the government in a strict manner.
Regarding the current response policy, he said that he would pay attention to whether South Korea would agree to the intergovernmental consultation based on the 1965 Japan-South Korea claim. The agreement that confirms the settlement of the right to claim in the colonial era provides that if the two sides are opposed to the interpretation, they will consult through diplomatic channels. Yan Yiwei said that I believe that South Korea will agree to negotiate with sincerity, and the text that does not respond to the consultation requirements is contained in the government.
