General Romulo Urges Allies To End Hateful Regime INTER-AMERICAN RESOLUTION Rec. 2.30. BRUSSELS, Aug. 10. Brigadier-General Carlos Romulo, Filipino leader who returned to the Philippines with General MacArthur, in a statement called on the Allies to eliminate Emperor Hirohito and every hateful vestige of the regime that has caused the brutalities and atrocities of the war. He added there should not be any weakening now that victory was assured. A message from Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) . states that, after a long study of war crimes and criminals, the Inter-American Juridical Committee has concluded that the head of a State waging a war. of aggression was criminall.' liable and subject to the judgment of the international tribunal. A report, which was drawn up under a resolution of the Mexico City InterAmerica Conference and signed by Brazil, Mexict), Chile, Argentina and the United States, makes the Japanese Emperor Hirohito subject to the tribunal since it lists Ministers of State separately from the head of a State and his necessary collaborators.
