Measures for farmhouse debts urged in South Korea

Pyongyang, September 18 (KCNA) — More than 20,000 peasants under the “National Federation of Peasants Associations” held a rally on Sept. 15 and demanded that the authorities take measures for farmhouse debts, a Seoul-based radio report said.

They said that farmhouse debts amounted to 28 trillion won, which would plunge debt-ridden farmhouses and even those that guaranteed them into a miserable plight.
They demanded that the authorities institute a special law for settling the problem of debts so as to relieve farmhouses of debts.
