Lawmaker Wants Pay For Slaves

Congressman Mike Honda wants the Japanese to pay for enslaving American prisoners during World War Two. The San Jose Democrat says his measure would allow former P-O-W´s to sue in state or federal court for compensation for the work they did during their captivity. The federal government says such suits have no merit because of the treaty with Japan which ended the war.
