Pyongyang, August 6 (KCNA) — The south Korean authorities are trying to implicate the DPRK in the “spy ring case”, the largest-ever cooked up after the emergence of the present “government.”
The Intelligence Service and police of south Korea kicked off an unprecedented repressive campaign, charging that progressive forces and those related to the reunification movement including the chief editor of magazine Minjok 21 and the representative of Chongchun, an Internet broadcasting service under the Solidarity for Implementing the South-North Joint Declaration, conducted “espionage” at the “instruction of the north”.
This serious provocation revealed the fin de siecle symptom of the fascist group obsessed by confrontation with fellow countrymen.
The south Korean authorities are now finding themselves in a tight corner for the acts of treachery committed since they came to power. They seek to find a way-out of it in orchestrating a shocking “case.”
The successive south Korean rulers have been engrossed in provoking the DPRK. Whenever they found themselves in crises, they cooked up anti-DPRK cases and used them for stoking hostility toward the fellow countrymen in the DPRK while escalating confrontation and war moves. This was their trite artifice.
This year the south Korean Court declared non-guilty Mr. Jo Pong Am, former leader of the Progressive Party, who was executed on the charge of his alleged involvement in “a spy ring case” 52 years ago. This was just part of tragedies showing the preposterous nature of “spy ring cases” and the like fabricated by the south Korean authorities.
At a time when the expectation for dialogue between the north and the south is running high, the south Korean puppet group is employing a hackneyed method, defying the requirement of the reality. This only brings into bolder relief their wretched plight of being mired by the worst ruling crisis.
The recent case brought to light the true colors of the puppet conservative group who stakes its fate on escalated confrontation with fellow countrymen.
It is quite natural that the south Koreans are denouncing the harsh suppression of the progressive forces and those related to the reunification movement as “hunting” of the ordinary people desirous of national reunification by dint of “the National Security Law.” -0
Pyongyang, August 8 (KCNA) — The south Korean fascist authorities’ fabrication of the “spy ring case” is a premeditated plot to brutally suppress and stamp out the pro-reunification movement organizations and progressive figures incurring their displeasure by linking them to the DPRK.
Rodong Sinmun Monday observes this in a bylined commentary.
Whenever the successive fascist dictators of south Korea found themselves in their extreme ruling crisis, they cooked up “spy ring cases” in a bid to divert the people’s attention elsewhere and justify their suppression of progressive forces. This was the trite artifice employed by them, the commentary notes, and goes on:
In recent years, the conservative authorities have blocked the democratic development of the society, brought the economy to ruin, deteriorated the people’s living and pushed the inter-Korean relations to a total collapse through the harshest fascist dictatorial rule and escalated confrontation with the DPRK. The resentment and hatred of the people from all walks of life for them have reached the height. The “National Assembly election” and the “presidential election” are expected to take place in south Korea next year. They aim to take these elections as platforms for throwing overboard those conservative forces for having enforced a misrule quite contrary to public mind-set.
Thrown into the abyss of utter isolation and ruin, they are seeking a way out of it in orchestrating a shocking “case.”
The south Korean public is now becoming increasingly vocal demanding the authorities make a switchover in their anachronistic “policy toward the north” as required by the trend of the times and opting for mending the inter-Korean relations. The above-said case was cooked up by the ultra-right conservative forces in south Korea who have so far stuck to the policy of escalating the confrontation under the signboard of “adhering to principles.” This case is aimed to throw a wet blanket over the public calling for the improved inter-Korean relations and justify their existing stand. -0
