This post is part of a continuing series on the Censored Newspaper Articles (CNAs).
On May 15, 1947, Yomiuri Shimbun submitted an article entitled, “Ship carrying blackmarket goods of 10,000,000 yen” (Prange Call No. 47-loc-0167), to the Civil Censorship Detachment (CCD). The article reports that the ship, the Daikichimaru, attempted to carry metals, rubber goods, machines, and other items to Korea, at an estimated value of 10,000,000 yen. The article was “Suppressed” by the CCD.
