Name(s) of victim(s):Meng Fangui’s uncle

Other details:My uncle was an ordinary civilian. He offended the Japanese soldiers, and was thrown into wolf dog pen and eaten by dogs. I would like to ask what materials I need to prepare for this situation to claim for compensation from Japan.
Comrade Tong Zeng,
I am writing to you because today I read an article entitled “Pursuing Justice from Japan” from Shenyang Daily and learned that you’ve done much work to pursue justice for civil victims of the anti-Japanese war.
I am reporting a crime that the Japanese army committed. My uncle was an ordinary civilian, but as he offended the Japanese in the anti-Japanese war, he was thrown into a cage of dogs by the Japanese and bitten to death. I want to know if I am entitled to demand compensation from Japan for my uncle’s death and what materials are required. Please take time to reply. Thank you.
