URGENT 22 April 1947 MEMORANDUM TO:Mr. Frank S. Tavenner Judge C.C. Hsiang FROM: Mr. David NelsonSutton Judge Judson T.Y. Nyi James T. C. liu Report on Unitroduced Evidences--China Phase Attached is a Report on Unitrodued Evidences with regard to the military aggressions, economic aggressions, and diplo¬matic policies of Japan in her war against China, 1937~8. The introduction of these evidences, in my submission, will greatly help the case, as about one half of the accused had their names appear in one or the other of these documents. It will also serve to refute some of the statements made by the defense witnesses in their affidavits. Whether these documents themselves, or the information contained therein, should be used to cross-examine them at this stage, requires careful judgement. But in any eventuality, these should all be processed and introduced during the rebuttal. SUBJECT; This is the first report of this kind on the China Phase. A second report, primarily,deals with the setting up of the puppet regimes in China, which corresponds to the defense sub-division IV, will be ready sometime around the end of this week.
