Two South Korean women (L and lower R) forced into sexual slavery by Japan during Tokyo's 1910-45 occupation of the country enter a Seoul prosecutors' office on March 4, 2013, along with a lawyer and other activists to file a defamation suit against a Japanese rock band that called the women 'prostitutes' in a song. A group of South Korean women forced into wartime sexual slavery by Japan filed a defamation suit nday against a little known Japanese rock band for calling them prostitutes. A CD containing a song with the allegedly defamatory lyrics by the band 'Scramble' was mailed -- along with a translated text -- to a shelter caring for so-called 'comfort women' in Gwangju, south of Seoul, last week.
