Pyongyang, April 13 (KCNA) -- The National Reunification Institute released an indictment on Monday to disclose the truth behind the murders, human rights abuses and other inhuman crimes perpetrated by the south Korean puppet group one year since the ferry Sewol disaster.
Terming the ferry disaster which occurred in south Korea on April 16, 2014 deliberate murder, the indictment said:
It was that morning that the ferry Sewol with hundreds of passengers
aboard suddenly tilted with a breaking sound and began to sink while
sailing across the waters off Jin Islet of South Jolla Province toward
Jeju Island after leaving Inchon.
As far as the ferry was concerned, it had its structure remodeled to
get more passengers on board. Problematic was its overweight cargo but
more deplorable was that the disaster was caused by deliberate
negligence in rescuing operation though there was time enough to rescue
them till the complete sinking of the ferry. Consequently, 304 people
including youngsters were all buried in the sea.
Park Geun Hye has never convened a meeting for retrieving bodies
stuck in the sunken ferry and salvaging it but has turned down the
repeated demand of the bereaved families for retrieving the bodies and
their call for a meeting with her.
When U.S. Ambassador Lippert had his face cut a little due to the
knife attack by a south Korean inhabitant, she made much fuss over it,
visiting the hospital where he was under treatment. She, however, was
utterly indifferent to the death of so many passengers.
In May last year when there were still a lot of bodies left at the
bottom of the sea, the puppet group was only busy dissolving the puppet
maritime police agency which had been in charge of salvage after blaming
it for the disaster. In November, the puppet group organized what it
called the agency for people's security. But it was only a farce for
misleading the public opinion.
There are still nine bodies left at the bottom of the sea though nearly one year has passed since the disaster.
The puppet group refused to salvage the ferry, insisting on such
nonsensical assertion that the salvage might claim more casualties and
it can be done only under an all-people agreement.
The indictment exposed the crafty moves of the puppet forces to cover up the truth about the ferry Sewol disaster.
The ad hoc committee for state investigation was formed at the
puppet National Assembly for the form's sake in May last year to probe
the truth about the disaster under the strong pressure of the bereaved
families and other people and opposition parties.
The coteries of Chongwadae and the "Saenuri Party" turned the
committee into a theatre of scramble. Consequently, the committee was
disbanded at the end of August last year with the expiry of its term
without yielding any result for more than 90 days after its formation.
The puppet group made desperate efforts to bar the special law on the
ferry from being instituted.
At the "state council meeting" the puppet chief executive
undisguisedly opposed the probe, claiming that the issue of giving the
right to investigation and prosecution to the investigation committee is
the "one confusing the keynote of the separation of three powers and
judicial system" and "it is the matter the president cannot settle".
The coteries of the "Saenuri Party" pressurized the bereaved
families and the opposition parties and adopted the toothless special
law on the ferry having neither right to investigation nor right to
prosecution in November last year.
The ad hoc committee for investigation was formed according to it
but the puppet forces worked hard to block it in every way.
The puppet forces, not content with mocking, insulting and turning
down the just demand of the bereaved families and other people for
probing the truth, let the security authorities brutally suppress them.
The unprecedented disaster and the developments in a year since it
go to clearly prove that south Korea is the worst tundra of human rights
and a veritable hell and the present regime of south Korea is the
man-killing regime utterly indifferent to the people's life and human
rights and the most brutal and cold-blooded regime and depraved regime
without an iota of humanity and tears.
