SEOUL, Korea, Republic Of — A South Korean court on Wednesday rejected a claim by South Korean sexual slavery victims and their relatives who sought compensation from the Japanese government over their wartime sufferings. Activists representing sexual slavery victims denounced the decision and said the Seoul Central District Court was ignoring their struggles to restore the women’s honour and dignity. They said in a statement that the plaintiffs would appeal. Japan had boycotted the court proceedings and insists all wartime compensation issues were settled under a 1965 treaty normalizing relations with South Korea. The Seoul court ruled the Japanese government should be exempt from civil jurisdiction under the principles of international law, according to South Korea’s Yonhap news agency. Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Katunobu Kato noted the decision conflicted with a previous ruling on a separate case that found the Japanese government responsible for compensating sexual slavery victims. Kato said he wouldn’t comment on the new ruling before examining the details more closely, but he added that Tokyo’s stance on the sexual slavery issue remains unchanged. He said the previous ruling was a “clear violation of international law” that was “extremely regrettable and absolutely unacceptable” for Tokyo. “Japan continues to strongly ask South Korea to take appropriate steps in order to correct the state of international violation," he said. The 20 plaintiffs, who had sued Japanese government in 2016, included 11 women who were forced to work at Japanese military brothels during World War II and relatives of other women who have since died. One of the plaintiffs — 92-year-old Lee Yong-soo — has been campaigning for South Korea and Japan to settle their decades-long impasse over sexual slavery by seeking judgment from the U.N.’s International Court of Justice. She has said it has become clear the issue cannot be resolved through bilateral talks or rulings by South Korea’s domestic courts that have been repeatedly rejected by the Japanese government, and that the friction between governments has hurt friendships between civilians. “Regardless of the verdict, we will go to the International Court of Justice,” she told reporters after Wednesday’s ruling. The same court in a largely symbolic ruling in January had called for the Japanese government to give 100 million won ($89,000) each to a separate group of 12 women who sued in 2013 over their wartime suffering as sex slaves. Tens of thousands of women across Japanese-occupied Asia and the Pacific were moved to front-line brothels used by the Japanese military. About 240 South Korean women registered with the government as victims of sexual slavery by Japan’s wartime military — only 15 of whom are still alive. Japan insists compensation issues were settled under the 1965 treaty, in which Tokyo provided $500 million in economic assistance to Seoul. Amnesty International in a statement called Wednesday’s ruling a “major disappointment that fails to deliver justice to the remaining survivors of this military slavery system and to those who suffered these atrocities before and during World War II but had already passed away, as well as their families.” Referring to the January court ruling, Arnold Fang, Amnesty International’s East Asia researcher, said, “What was a landmark victory for the survivors after an overly long wait is again now being called into question.” The ruling came as the Asian U.S. allies struggle to repair their relations that sank to post-war lows in recent years over history, trade, and military issues. Their recurring animosity could possibly complicate President Joe Biden's efforts to bolster three-way co-operation with U.S. regional allies, which declined under years of President Donald Trump’s “America first” approach, to co-ordinate action in face of China’s growing influence and North Korea’s nuclear threat. Besides the impasse over sexual slavery, South Korea and Japan have feuded over South Korean court rulings that called for Japanese companies to compensate Koreans who were forced to work in factories during the war. The countries have made little progress in repairing their relations despite South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s vow last month to build “future-oriented ties” with Tokyo. Fresh tensions have risen after Japan confirmed it would release treated radioactive water from the Fukushima nuclear plant into the ocean. In 2015, South Korea’s previous conservative government reached a deal with Japan to “irreversibly” resolve the sexual slavery dispute. Under that deal, Japan agreed to fund a foundation to support victims in return for South Korea ceasing its criticism of Japan over the issue. But Moon’s government took steps to dissolve the foundation after he took office in 2017, saying the 2015 deal lacked legitimacy because officials failed to properly communicate with victims before reaching it. ___ Associated Press journalist Mari Yamaguchi in Tokyo contributed to this report.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Karl-Anthony Towns had 25 points and a season-high 18 rebounds, and the Minnesota Timberwolves pulled away over the final five minutes and thumped the Sacramento Kings 134-120 on Tuesday night. Anthony Edwards and D’Angelo Russell added 28 points apiece to help the Timberwolves beat the Kings for the second time this season and the first time in front of fans at Golden 1 Center. About 1,600 front-line workers sat alongside cardboard cutouts after California eased its COVID-19 restrictions eased earlier this month. Minnesota trailed 115-114 when Edwards made his fifth 3-pointer to start a 17-3 run. Town had seven points during the stretch. Harrison Barnes and Mo Harkless scored 20 points apiece for Sacramento. The Kings have lost 10 of 11. The Timberwolves repeatedly burned the Kings from the perimeter with 18 3-pointers, one shy of their season high. Sacramento pushed Minnesota after a slow start and led 103-99 going into the fourth before getting held to 17 points over the final 12 minutes. DELAY, DELAY, DELAY Six days after getting hit with delay of game calls three times in the fourth quarter, the Kings were called for another delay – this time before the opening tip-off. No reason was given but Buddy Hield, as he does before most home games, was last to joint the rest of the players on court. TIP-INS Timberwolves: Minnesota made nine 3s in the first quarter. Edwards had four of them and scored 16 in the opening 12 minutes. … Jaylen Nowell has missed the last three games with a bruised right tibia. Kings: Hassan Whiteside had 12 points and seven rebounds in his second straight start. He was also called for delay for hanging on the rim following a dunk. … Terence Davis was whistled for a technical in the third quarter.

Diamondback AC, Heating & Refrigeration releases important information about its latest product offering, the Reme Halo In-Duct Air Purification System.

They want to make sure the information about the Reme Halo In-Duct Air Purifier reach consumers who can benefit from healthier indoor air quality. The idea for offering Reme Halo In-Duct Air Purification Systems came about after the owners of Diamondback AC & Heating, Chris Hill and Joseph Stanush, discovered the Reme Halo’s ability to clear pollen and allergens out of homes. They know many people in the community suffer from allergies and liked the idea that installing Whole House Air Purification could provide a healthier home for their customers. When the Reme Halo was certified to kill the COVID-19 virus, that just catapulted the desire to get the product installed for every homeowner. In October of 2020 RGF® Environmental Group, Inc., a leading environmental design and manufacturing company, released the results of a third-party study that reveal REME HALO® efficacy of 99.9% against the SARS-CoV-2 virus, commonly known as the coronavirus 2019 or COVID-19. The installation of the Reme Halo is a fairly quick process. The air purification device is installed into the return air duct of the Central AC & Heating system.

One homeowner quoted, “Everything outside was covered with green dust and inside, no matter how much we vacuumed, the pet dander and hair floated in the air with 6 animals running around. It seemed like my husband and I were sneezing all day long. Within a few days after Diamondback AC & Heating installed the Reme Halo we noticed less pet hair flying in the air making it much easier to vacuum it all. We can now go days and weeks without 1 sneeze. Truly amazing! Now knowing that the Reme also kills COVID-19 virus, I feel like it has played a part in keeping our home and us healthy throughout the pandemic.
