Six Interpreters Chosen Will Serve in International War Crimes Tribunal Trials Six of the 12 expert interpreters to serve in the International War Crimes Tribunal trials have been chosen by Counsellor Saburo Ota of the Central Liaison Office, the Mainichi reported. They are Jun Tsuchiya, formerly deputy spokesman of the Board of Information, now defunct; Henry Toshiro Shimanouchi, former secretary of the same agency; Tomio Mori, former secretary in the Japanese Ambassadorial Office in Shanghai; Seiichi Homma, of the Foreign Office; Masayoshi Hoshima of the American Club; and Takashi Oka, student of Rikkyo (St. Paul’s) University. In view of the grave effect which the interpreters’ ability exerts upon the proceedings of trials as demonstrated in the war crimes courts in Yokohama and Manila utmost efforts are being made to secure the service of highly competent linguists, said the journal.
