The suggestion has been made that the Japanese Government be included in the indictment as a prosecuting party.  This is based on the fact that by the terms of surrender the Japanese Government accepted the provisions of the Potsdam agreement  and that the latter included provision that stern justice be meted out to war criminals. It is also suggested that the inclusion would make trials more effective as far as the Japanese people and the world in general are concerned.
It is not proposed that the Japanese Government be represented at the trial by judge or prosecutor. Please advise Australia's attitude towards the suggestion. Welcome with pleasure Major Mornane's  appointment.
