United States v. Araki
Military Tribunal for the Far East
MSS 78-3, Box Nos. 216-219, Spec. Co11., University of Virginia Law Library (1946)
Araki (defendant) and others were Japanese officials and military officers during World War II. During the war, Japan initiated attacks against France, the Netherlands, Great Britain, and the United States. The Military Tribunal for the Far East, which held jurisdiction over Japan after the war, determined that Japan had made unprovoked attacks against the other nations in order to seize their possessions. The tribunal also found that Japan had engaged in torture, rape, and murder during the war. The tribunal prosecuted Araki and others for their leadership roles within Japan.
