This chapter looks at representative cases involving the mistreatment of prisoners of war and civilian internees by Japanese camp personnel, as well as noninterned civilians who were mistreated while being interrogated by the Japanese police authorities. The chapter also looks at a war crime that was never prosecuted involving the murder of 900 Indonesian civilian laborers, who died as a result of a faulty medical experiment. A key case examined in this chapter is the prosecution of Army Captain Sone, who was the first Japanese national to be tried, convicted, and sentenced to death for war crimes committed against prisoners and civilians.

Keywords:   Captain Kenitji Sone, prisoners of war, civilian internees, torture, waterboarding, starvation, Sumatra railway war crimes, Kempeitai, mistreatment of prisoners of war, illegal work for prisoners of war
