SDHF Newsletter No.236 Open Questions to CERD on Korea
Open Questions to the CERD Concluding Observations on the Combined Seventeenth to Nineteenth Periodic Reports of the Republic of Korea on Jan. 10, 2019
March 12, 2019
Japan NGO Coalition against Racial Discrimination (JNCRD) submitted two NGO reports to the CERD in November 2018 concerning racism in Korea. One report was titled “Special Law on the Inspection of Collaborations for the Japanese Imperialism” and the other was titled “The Real Circumstance of Anti-Japanese Thinking in the Republic of Korea”, which were uploaded in the official CERD website:
However, “The Concluding Observations for the Republic of Korea” of January 10, 2019 completely neglected those two reports.
Against their unfair and wholly inappropriate Observations, two members of the Japan NGO Coalition against Racial Discrimination (JNCRD), International Research Institute of Controversial Histories (iRICH) and Academics’ Alliance for Correcting Groundless Criticism of Japan (AACGCJ) sent an open letter of protest to Professor Noureddine Amir, Chair of the CERD and to Ms. Gay McDougall, Country Rapporteur for the Republic of Korea:
Questions are welcome.
