Report on the Case Against Col Kingoro HASHIMOTO, I. J. A. (Ret)
Outlines the case against HASHIMOTO, citing specific incidents and evidence to be used against him. Begins by asserting "From 1930 until the end of the war, Col. HASHIMOTO was the prime-mover and chief agitator of the aggression expansion movement in Japan. Through his Army connections and the many nationalistic organizations that he founded, his writings, and his public speeches, he exerted great power and influence on the people of Japan ideologically and politically." The report then provides more details on each of the aforementioned aspects. Mentions the Cherry Blossom Society, OKAWA, KOISO, SUGIYAMA, CHO, NINOMIYA, TATEKAWA, Dai Nippon Seinen To, the Ladybird incident, Dai Nippon Seki Sei Kai, KONOYE. Concludes by emphasizing that HASHIMOTO was "no mere rabble-rouser in the streets, no mere fanatical hawker of propaganda in the hedge-rows and by-rows of Japan" but instead, was a high official directing actions.
