Report by Matsui Admits His Troops Behaved Wrongly News Article
Reports on a prosecution report submitted to the IMTFE that included statements by Iwane Matsui declaring "the conduct and behavior of the Japanese troops who invaded Nanking in December, 1937" as "bad." Also reports on the submission of an interrogation report by Shuroku Hata regarding the "China Incident." In it, he stated that "he did not realize the aggression constituted a violation of the Nine Power Treaty of which Japan was a party." Both reports by Matsui and Hata were entered over objections from the defense counsel. Other topics discussed include the report by Col. Kingoro Hashimoto regarding the USS Panay and the chronological progress of Japanese military aggression in China (including the Marco Polo Incident).
