S. Korean court dismisses case brought by 'comfort women,' citing Japan's state immunity Updated: 2021-04-21 10:59:28 KST

A South Korean court has dismissed a case brought by a group of victims of Japan's wartime sexual slavery, known to many as "Comfort Women."
The group was seeking compensation from the Japanese government for its crimes during the colonial period.
However, the court said that, due to state immunity, a South Korean court has no jurisdiction over another country.
The decision is the opposite outcome of an earlier decision made by the same court, but for different plaintiffs.
Back then, the court said state immunity didn't apply.
