South Korean court orders Japan’s Mitsubishi to compensate wartime forced labourers

South Korea’s top court ruled that Japan’s Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd must compensate 28 South Koreans for their forced labour during World War Two, a ruling that drew an immediate rebuke from Tokyo. The decision echoed the Supreme Court’s landmark verdict last month that ruled in favour of South Koreans seeking compensation from Japan’s Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corp. for their wartime forced labour.It upheld a 2013 appeals court decision that Mitsubishi must pay 80 million won to each of 23 plaintiffs in compensation. In a separate ruling, the court also ordered Mitsubishi to pay up to 150 million won to each of another five plaintiffs or their families.
