Stop to suppression of KCTU delegates demanded

Pyongyang, November 1 (KCNA) — The South Korean rulers recently walked away Ri Hong Un, vice-chairman of the federation of metal trade unions, on the strength of the “security law” allegedly to “investigate” the activities of the delegation of the South Korean Confederation of Trade Unions (KCTU) which visited Pyongyang for the “soccer game of north-south workers for reunification” last August. They have argued that the delegation’s inspection of several places of Pyongyang “was alien to the purpose of visit.”

This is an anti-reunification criminal act to block non-governmental dialogue and contact between the north and south and pour the cold water over the nation’s desire for reunification growing day by day, a spokesman of the c.c., the General Federation of Trade Unions of Korea said in his statement sunday.

Asking how KCTU delegates’ inspection in Pyongyang can be incriminated, the statement said:

However, the South Korean rulers are taking issue with the delegates’ inspection of Pyongyang. This reveals that they are the villains without any elementary courtesy and common sense and the loathsome traitorous group who have neither will for reunification nor the fraternity.

Their intention is to break the South Korean people’s desire for alliance and reunification with the north by incriminating and punishing the delegates who had done good things for the reconciliation and unity of the nation.

The South Korean rulers should immediately stop the suppression of the delegates, unconditionally release all the pro-reunification patriots imprisoned on unreasonable charges and totally abolish the “security law”, an anti-reunification fascist law.
