According to the plaintiffs, VAWW-Net Japan organized an event, the women's international war crimes tribunal, in Tokyo last December.
Yayori Matsui, leader of the Violence Against Women in War-Network Japan (VAWW-NET Japan) that sponsored the tribunal with two other groups, told a press conference at the Foreign Correspondents Club of Japan that the public broadcasting company radically changed the contents a few days before broadcast without any consultations.
Yasushi Higashizawa, lawyer for the VAWW-NET, called the sudden changes made to program a ''threat to the freedom of the press'' and that the added criticism of the tribunal ''defamed'' former sex slaves who had offered testimony.
