The apology and compensation offered on Wednesday by Mitsubishi Materials Corp to the survivors or the families of 3,800 Chinese nationals forced to work as slave labor during World War II is a case of justice being done - finally.

More than 70 years have passed since about 40,000 Chinese were brought to Japan to work as forced labor.
