Police Violence Denounced in S. Korea

Pyongyang, June 7 (KCNA) — The Reunification Solidarity and the People’s Solidarity of south Korea reportedly held a news conference in front of the building of the Police Office in Seoul on June 1 and denounced the indiscriminate crackdown of the police authorities.

The speakers including Han Sang Ryol, permanent representative chairman of the Reunification Solidarity, condemned the police which committed an indiscriminate crackdown on the participants in the rally and protest against war and for peace on May 29, walking away 26 protesters and seriously wounding 30 or more others.

The police outrage against the protesters voicing opposition to war and the U.S. was a premeditated act intended to break the daily growing people’s will against war and for peace at any cost, they noted.

They said the expression of the people for the retraction of the U.S. hostile policy against the north, the pullout of the U.S. forces and peace and reunification of the Korean Peninsula is a right that can in no case be encroached upon.

They strongly demanded the authorities disband the combat police units which committed the violence and those answerable for the case.

A protest letter to the police authorities was made public at the news conference.
