So Jun Sik protests human rights violations against unconvicted prisoners

Pyongyang, January 10 (KCNA) — So Jun Sik, Chairman of the Human Rights Movement Committee in South Korea, filed a written protest with the South Korean puppet court against violations of human rights of unconvicted prisoners, a Seoul-based radio reported.

In the protest lodged through his lawyer on January 6, he expressed indignation at the fact that though Ri Jang Hui, professor of the university of foreign studies, was an unconvicted prisoner, the fascist clique forced him to put on prison uniform and handcuffs even in jail as well as during prosecutor’s investigation.
He denounced this behaviour as an act of human rights violations infringing upon the dignity and freedom of people.
Ri Jang Hui wrote “I am the first generation of reunification”, a textbook for primary school pupils.
In the autumn last year, So Jun Sik was arrested on charges of sponsoring a human rights film festival.
Even in prison, he has continued his struggle, denouncing the crimes of the fascists and defending human rights of innocent people.
