Stop to Police Search for Political Offenders Demanded in S. Korea

Pyongyang, August 3 (KCNA) — Prayer meetings were reportedly held at the Hall of Christian Churches in Jongro District, Seoul, by south Korean religious organizations on July 29 to demand the “government” take a step for stopping the police search for political offenders on the want list.

It was attended by members of the Human Rights Committee of the south Korean Council of Christian Churches, the south Korean National Council of Christians for Justice and Peace, the Christian Youth Council of south Korea and others.

It was also participated in by members of the group of sit-in strikers demanding a stop to the police search for political offenders and release of all prisoners of conscience and the Family Movement for Realizing Democracy.

Speakers there said it is quite abnormal for so many students to be still subject to police search at a time when the atmosphere of south-north exchange and visits is growing strong.

They called upon all religious organizations and organizations of the movement for democracy to come out to put a definite end to the police search.
