Defoliant victims demand compensation

Pyongyang, November 25 (KCNA) — Defoliant victims in South Korea, who had been taken to the Vietnamese war of aggression provoked by the U.S., formed a defense counsel consisting of 101 lawyers to demand compensation for their damage, a South Korean newspaper said.

They filed a suit with the Seoul district court against a defoliant manufacturing company of the U.S., demanding 5,160 billion won in compensation.

They held that the U.S. should pay compensation for spraying the murderous poisonous material in the demilitarized zone along the Military Demarcation Line of Korea.

Meanwhile, the federation of measures against defoliant, a group of defoliant victims, called a press conference in Seoul on November 23 and strongly urged the authorities to take steps for the medical treatment of the victims and the living of their families.
