My only valid source 義済会員名簿 Giseikai Officers List was published in 1943. It means I don’t have the answer for young officers appointed firstly on 1945.

Question about an IJN officer tried for war crimes. On 17 April 1946, CAPT KAWASAKI Susumu (46) was sentenced to death by firing squad for the killing of American POWs on Wake Island in 1942-1943, while LTJG HORIE Kiroku (No info on him) was sentenced to death by hanging for the same crime. Were the sentences ever carried out? TIA for any info.

Is the above sure? CAPT KAWASAKI Susumu was Commanding Officer of 65th Guard Unit (Wake Island) between 31 December 1941 and 10 December 1942. His successor CAPT SAKAIBARA Shigematsu 酒井原繁松 (46) who was appointed on 10 December 1942 and was sentenced to death in a war crimes trial in Guam on charges of the massacre of prisoners of war in October 1943, and was executed on 19 June 1947.

Hello ijnfleetadmiral,

The command of CAPT KAWASAKI Susumu had command authority to 65th Guard Unit only during the period of 31 December 1941 -10 December 1942. Since the term of Ex CDR CHO Hikaru was 31 December 1941 - 15 September 1942, this war crime occurred during the period of 31 December 1941 -15 September 1942. There are no records of war crimes on Wake Island during this time. As a war crime during the period of 31 December 1941 -10 December 1942, a riot occurred in Nitta Maru transported 1,000 - 1,200 U.S. POW from Waki Island to Japan, and five prisoners of war were executed, but this is clearly the outside of command authority of CAPT KAWASAKI Susumu.

I checked BC級戦犯関係資料集 第3巻 BC-class war criminal-related material collection Vol.3. It is the collection of materials held by the Diplomatic Archives of Japan Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
See the below which is the comparison of two sources. They are the same trial. It seems execution of Kawasaki Susumu and Horie Kiroku was stopped. Unfortunately the detail is not explained.
