Pyongyang, September 19 (KCNA) — The Seoul district public prosecutor’s office of South Korea on Sept. 14 detained Father Mun Kyu Hyon by invoking the “National Security Law,” charging him with “infiltration and escape,” according to a radio report from Seoul.
This shows how harshly the south Korean authorities are persecuting him.
As is known, they had arrested him after making an “investigation” into priests of the “Korean Catholic Priests’ Council for Justice” who had been to North Korea.
Nevertheless, they took another legal action against him, enraging the fellow countrymen.
Father Mun Kyu Hyon, together with other priests of the council, took part in the August 15 grand pro-reunification festival and expressed the will and desire of the nation for reunification.
The South Korean authorities, however, laid heavy charges on him by invoking the notorious “National Security Law” twice. This shows that they seek only the division of the nation, not its reunification.
The more frantically they invoke the fascist “NSL”, the fiercer the South Korean people’s struggle for its abolition will become and the higher their aspiration for the reunification will grow.
The South Korean authorities must abolish the “NSL”, the waste of the era, and immediately release all the unreasonably arrested pro-reunification democrats including Father Mun Kyu Hyon.
