VANK created a poster to inform the international community of the truth of the vessel, Ukishima, and is distributing the poster on social media.
The poster states “Intended Genocide! The worst sinking incident ever in world history! We are looking for the jury to participate in the Asian Holocaust, the ‘Ukishima’ trial.” as the topic. It also presents the crime overview and evidence of crime so that people around the world could be concerned in the incident and become an honorary jury of the case.
