Fate of Manchukuo Police after the war?

Post by Hama » 09 Nov 2017 23:10

Does anyone know what tended to happen after WW2 to the Chinese, Manchu, Russians, etc. who had served in the Manchukuo police forces? Were they generally treated as traitors and collaborators, or did the Chinese (Nationalist/Communist) and Soviets let them off or even try recruiting them post-war?

I'm asking because I heard that in Poland there were policemen who were accepted by the Polish resistance after the German surrender because they weren't viewed as having been proper Axis fighters (and many in fact had helped resistance members during the war). However later some were persecuted under Soviet rule. I was curious if a similar situation occurred in Manchukuo?
