Loss of Transitional Justice: Japanese Victim of 228 Incident is Rejected Compensation from Taiwanese Government

The Ministry of the Interior said that after the break-off of the diplomatic relationship between Taiwan and Japan, there was no precedent to be conformed to, and in situations of Taiwanese citizens applying for compensation to Japanese government, like the cases of comfort women during the WWII, no compensation was granted. The Ministry of the Interior thus decided to reject the application of compensation on grounds of the principle of equality and mutual benefits.
