Unlawful Subsidy to North Korean Schools

 The Ministry of Education and Science and the Democratic Party of Japan are planning to subsidize North Korean Schools to make them tuition-free. However, such subsidies violate article 89 of the Japanese Constitution. Further, when we consider Japan’s financial situation and the abduction issue, such illegal expenditures are outrageous.  

 Article 89 of the Japanese Constitution prohibits disbursement of official funds to charitable or educational operations which are not under public supervision. Nevertheless, local governments have subsidized North Korean schools for decades. Leftists conveniently ignore their own violation of the constitution while being totally inflexible Article 9 of the constitution. They are hypocrites!  

 According to the plan put forth by the Ministry of Education and Science, the government does not take into account the content of the curriculum of a school when deciding whether to subsidize a school or not. In the case of American Schools or other licensed ethnic schools such as Chinese schools, they have already been inspected. Such foreign schools are, to some degree, under the supervision of Japanese authorities. On the other hand, North Korean schools have never applied for their inspection. Reportedly, they teach radical, cult contents based on an anti-Japan doctrine.  

 On September 7th, Tokyo Governor, Shintaro Ishihara, met abuductees’ families and declared that Tokyo would reconsider the subsidies to North Korean schools. However, this action does not go nearly far enough.  

 When Kim Jong Il admitted the abduction of Japanese citizens, Koreans living in Japan were tremendously shocked, and most North Koreans converted their citizenship from North to South Korea. Still, some 40,000 Koreans remain North Korean in Japan.  

 In Japan, North Koreans are not guaranteed legal status because there is no diplomatic relations between Japan and North Korea. However, their human rights are guaranteed by international law. They don’t have a right to live in Japan, but they do have a right to return to their country.  

 North Korea deported a German doctor who helped North Korea greatly. The deportation did not violate international law. Similarly, Japan should deport North Koreans. Also, North Korean schools should be banned from Japan. In order to rescue abducted Japanese citizens, Japan should do anything lawful in compliance with international law.
