    THE THREE-DAY SESSION IN TOKYO HAS BEEN SPONSORED BY THE JAPAN COMMITTEE FOR INVESTIGATION OF WAR CRIMES IN VIETNAM. THE COMMITTEE IS MADE UP OF JAPANESE INTELLECTUALS, LEFTISTS, AND PACIFISTS.

    THERE ARE 28 "JUDGES" FOR THE TRIBUNAL, AND THEY ARE DUE TO HAND DOWN THEIR VERDICT ON THURSDAY. FOUR FOREIGNERS, REPRESENTING BERTRAND RUSSELL'S TRIBUNAL, ARE SITTING IN AS OBSERVERS.

    EVIDENCE COLLECTED BY JAPANESE INVESTIGATORS IN NORTH VIETNAM INCLUDES TAPE RECORDINGS OF ALLEGED CONFESSIONS BY AMERICAN WAR PRISONERS.

    TWO MEMBERS OF THE JUDGING PANEL APPEARED AS WITNESSES IN THE STOCKHOLM WAR CRIMES TRIAL IN MAY THIS YEAR.
