Some officials have issued documents criticizing the group’s executives, saying that buddhist organizations that operate facilities where former comfort women live in South Korea have amassed more than 100 million yen in japanese yen and are trying to use them for the business of paid elderly facilities that are not related to former comfort women. South Korea’s ex-comfort women’s support activities have been harshly focused on another group that has been criticized for its uncertainty over the operation of the former comfort women, who prosecutors have just raided.
In Gyeonggi-do, near Seoul, South Korea, a Buddhist group runs the Nanum House, a facility for former comfort women, and now lives with six elderly women.

Some officials of the organization issued a document criticizing executives for having problems with the operation.

The document criticizes the organization for trying to use more than 100 million won of assets, including real estate stored in the organization, and more than 1.14 billion yen in Japanese yen, based on donations raised for the purpose of using it for former comfort women, for business in paid elderly facilities that are not related to former comfort women.

In response, several South Korean media reported that the donations received by the group last year, at least in Japanese yen, were used for former comfort women.
