S. Korean authorities urged to ensure human rights

Pyongyang, September 12 (KCNA) — The secretary general of the Amnesty International called a press conference in Seoul on Thursday and urged the South Korean authorities to stop the repression by the fascist law and ensure human rights, according to a radio report from Seoul.

He said there has been no improvement in human rights 6th months after the present ruler took office. Abuse of the “National Security Law” and the issue of prisoners of conscience are impairing confidence in the South Korean “government’s” “reforming,” he said.
Even after the appearance of the present regime, over 240 people were detained on charges of violating the “NSL” and Some 400 prisoners of conscience have not yet been released, he pointed out, calling for relevant measures.
The “government” should also take steps against human rights violations which women and workers are now undergoing due to the serious economic crisis, he urged.
