Japan Urged to Halt Abduction of Citizens of DPRK

Tokyo, April 23 (KNS-KCNA) — An Phil Hwa, Japanese woman in the DPRK, came back to the DPRK after being abducted to Japan due to the appeasement of the Japanese reactionaries.

The Human Rights Association of Koreans in Japan Friday issued a statement in this connection.

Recalling that she expressed her feelings at the press conference at the DPRK embassy in Beijing prior to her departure on April 18, the statement said: This clearly indicates that the An Phil Hwa case was an abduction carried out in conspiracy and collusion with international reactionaries.

In recent years right-wing conservative groups in the U.S. and south Korea and tricksters in service to Japan under the cloak of a “non-governmental organization” have resorted to dastardly moves to tarnish the image of the DPRK at any cost under the pretext of “human rights issue”.

The Center of the Association of ROK Residents in Japan is persisting in their treacherous acts in violation of the June 15 joint declaration, availing itself of the anti-DPRK moves of the international reactionaries, the statement said, demanding the association stop at once the acts harmful to the Korean community in Japan.

The statement urged the Japanese authorities to stop joining the international tricksters in their operation to lure and abduct the Japanese who had come to the DPRK according to their will and their family members.
