Slavery of Aso’s Family-III
The British citizen James McAnulty is seeking an apology from Aso Taro because his father spent long hours at Aso’s family’s Fukuoka Prefecture mine while a former POW. “He (my father) said there was a lack of food and the sleeping quarters were terrible, but sleep was welcome because it was like he was forgetting the pain…. They made immense profits and part of that was off my father’s back. My father should be paid for the years he worked there, and compensated for the cruelty imposed on him and the psychological damage (Japan Times 31 May 2009).” In 2006 when the US media reports first regarding Aso family’s slavery business, Aso Taro, them foreign minister ordered his officials to publicly rubbish the news.
