Japan Empire has di-Sovereign Entities; they are the Emperor of Japan Empire and the Imperial Japan Diet that formed and pushed the Government of Japan Empire. Japan Empire performed the Meiji Constitution which mentioned in Article 4-4 of Taiwan Relation Act (1979):” Whenever the application of the laws of the United States depends upon the law that is or was applicable on Taiwan or compliance therewith, the law applied by the people on Taiwan shall be considered the applicable law for that purpose.” Japan Empire was fighting with the Allied Powers since 1941, surrendering on 2 September1945 and is now still under military occupation by the Allied Powers. On 3 May 1947 under military occupation, the Emperor of Japan agreed and the Peace Constitution performed. (The Peace Constitution rose up by the General MacArthur of Allied Powers and Imperial Japan Diet, the other Sovereign Entity of Japan Empire.) At this moment, the Sovereign Entity (i.e. the Government ) was independent from Japan Empire and Japan Empire began the temporary disappearance.
  • 2. Japan Peace: Japan, the Sovereign State started from 1947 when under military occupation, forced by General MacArthur with Peace Constitution to be independent and the country’s Sovereignty is on the people of Japan.

Formosa and Pescadores is the area where Qing Empire ceded in perpetuity to Japan Empire under the Treaty of Shimonoseki of 1895, listed in Article 19 of Five Power Treaty (Washington Treaty) of 1922 as territories of Japan Empire, is maintained the territorial integrity by Charter of the United Nations (came into force on 24 October 1945) and occupied by Chiang Kai-shek (who acting on behalf of the United States , the Republic of China, the United Kingdom and the British Empire, and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, under General Order No. 1) and his representatives (namely, Chinese Taipei) from 25 October 1945.

 

F. Attachments

Attachment 1

It’s in the document of RCJE, ”Instrument of identification Card Issuance for Civilians in the Areas of Occupied Japan Empire", dated 16 September 2013 and 7 October 2013,Postscript: Empire and Subjects 20130927.

Empire and Subjects 20130927

Empire

“Empire” is a historical term. However, our nationality called “Japan Empire” is characterization of international law. The purpose for the term “Empire” is only to distinguish between the 1947’s independent Japan and the country where we were living before military occupation, called Japan too. The sovereign structures of the two sovereign States (both named Japan) are entirely different.

Hence, we use the term “Japan Empire” not to mean that we assist Imperialism but only to distinguish the different Legal States in international law.

Let us review the history of human civilization. The Empire has important meaning in the history about forming Sovereignty of States. In 16 century to 19 century, Empire became an emblem of a Sovereign State. The Executive power, Legislative power, Judicial power, and Diplomatic power of a State, these powers are concentrated in the Emperor as if the Emperor is a representative symbol of Sovereignty as known as Sovereign entity. In that time period, almost all Sovereign States are called Empires, whether they had colonies or not. 

At that time, there were three kinds of people in the international customary law; they are citizens, nationals, and colonists. Citizens and nationals apply to International Human Rights law and colonists apply to the International Humanitarian law. The determination for lands to be a State’s territory or colony in the international customary law also depends on the human rights standards. Only the inhabitants of the lands were treated as citizens or nationals of a Sovereign State; the lands would be determined as the Sovereign State’s territories. On the contrary, treated as colonists they would be determined as a Sovereign State’s colonies.

After re-explanation of the definition of Japan Empire, (You could also review our “TAIWAN URGENTLY REQUEST PROTECTING POWERS” published on Aug. 16, 2013, there is a definition of Japan Empire in the document opening.), let’s go on with the term Japan Empire as our country’s name which does not involve any Imperialism.

Our country, the Japan Empire, did not have a colony. Formosa and Pescadores (Taiwan) is her territory. Because she treated the inhabitants well and fully respected. The situation was reported on September 24th, of the news “SAVAGE ISLAND OF FORMOSA TRANSFORMED BY JAPANESE “ by the New York Times. More than that, both the Five Power Treaty signed in Washington in 1922 and the Charter of United Nations came into force on 1945.10.24 confirmed that Taiwan is an indivisible territory of Japan Empire.

Japan Empire is essentially a State with confederation pattern like British Commonwealth. Compared to concepts of Human Rights in other States, at that time, Japan Empire is a Country that treated her people with high degree self-governing and respect. Historically, Japan Empire is not an Imperialism Country in the age of Empire. This name, Japan Empire, is an honor emblem of respect to Human Rights in human history, just as our county submitted the "Racial Equality Proposal" to the League of Nations In 1919, marked the Milestone of human civilization respect to Human Rights. Japan Empire is a democratic State with di-sovereign entities. One of the sovereign entities, the Imperial Japan Diet, is composed and on behalf of people. Please allow us to use Japan Empire as our nationality before the “resettlement” of us to the country where we were living, the country with Di-Sovereign Entities; they are His Majesty the Emperor and the parliament composed of people. The term of “resettlement” is explained in 4th Geneva Convention Art. 6 Commentary Para 4.

 

Subjects

Subjects in Meiji Constitution of Japan Empire are not enslaved social class. The implication is that the subjects are followers of morals. His Majesty the Emperor is good, representative of moral of “ideas” (the term ideas, comes from philosopher Plato), similar to Confucius in ancient Chinese Culture, like Jesus Christ in present Church.

All the people who have ethical manners and comply with laws called subjects in our country. This is the original and cultural form of our country.

Attachment 2

The surrender agreement that shows our country before being occupied has two Sovereign Entities.

 

 

Attachment 3:

Our government which issued currency before being occupied.

 

Attachment 4

We declare the re-establishing government of Japan Empire formed on 20 February 2014, the meaningful day of “World Day of Social Justice”.
