War Crimes Trials: Volume 8 On 18th March, 1946, twenty-one members of the Japanese Kempei Tai faced a British war Crimes Court t Singapore on charges of arresting, ill-treating and torturing fifty-seven civilians at Changi Goal, whereby fifteen died.
The tale unfolded is gruesome indeed. The inhuman treatment of the prisoners by this unit of the Japanese military police is almost beyond belief, and the methods of torture applied are more related to mediaeval days than to a twentieth century so-called nation. Even such a reverend figure as the Bishop of Singapore was not immune from their vile assaults.
This story is typical of the methods adopted by this criminal organization, which worked in a way whereby results could be obtained from confessions quite oblivious of the fact that such forced confessions were often very far from the truth.
