Pyongyang denounces sentence of pro-DPRK citizen

PYONGYANG – The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Sunday lashed out at a recent South Korean court ruling to send a pro-DPRK citizen behind bars, the official KCNA news agency said.
The KCNA quoted the Secretariat of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea as identifying the jailed DPRK supporter as Hwang Kil Gyong.
Imposing a heavy sentence on Hwang is “as foolish an act as to cover up the sunshine with palm and an unethical crime of violating faith and conscience,” the committee was quoted as saying.
According to the KCNA, Hwang, a South Korean national, opened an Internet website called Cyber National Defense Command with articles and animation files calling for the reunification of the Korean Peninsula.
The news agency said that Hwang was detained by South Korean authorities in December on the charge of violating South Korea’s National Security Law.
