SEOUL – The Seoul Central District Court on Thursday rejected wartime labor compensation claims against manufacturer Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. from 54 plaintiffs, citing insufficient evidence to prove their recruitment.
The 54 were among 63 who had filed compensation lawsuits against the company. The court still ordered Mitsubishi Heavy to pay one male plaintiff 10 million won (about ¥943,000) in damages, while rejecting claims by the remaining eight over procedural issues.
