Pyongyang, August 4 (KCNA) -- The south Korean puppet forces have kicked off another anti-DPRK racket by floating misinformation that Rim Hyon Su made a false confession under "duress and pressure" after being arrested in the DPRK for his subversive plots and activities against it.
A spokesman for the Policy Department of the National Defence
Commission of the DPRK gave the following answer to the question put by
KCNA on Tuesday in this regard:
The day after a press conference was held with Rim, a spokesman for
the puppet Ministry of Unification of south Korea claimed that the DPRK
"illegally detained" Rim and "forced him to make a confession."
The south Korean puppet authorities prodded the conservative media
into spreading misinformation that the DPRK sought to "tighten the
control over inhabitants and strengthen the social system" by "hyping up
the threats" from outside. They went the lengths of asserting that the
DPRK is resorting to "hostage diplomacy" as a tactical measure to take
the initiative at the negotiations under the situation where the DPRK is
playing a tug of war in the relations with south Korea and the U.S.
These remarks are nothing but sophism of those who have guilty conscience.
The south Korean puppet authorities and the U.S. have always been
behind those forces engaged in extreme hostile acts against the DPRK in
all realms of politics, economy and military.
Rim acted an anti-communist maniac and a member of a shock force for
the confrontation with the fellow countrymen in the north at the risk
of his life under the mask of religion as he was under the dark
tentacles of the south Korean puppet authorities and the U.S.
He perpetrated such high treason as hurling mud at the dignity of
the supreme leadership of the DPRK and its social system, hatching a
plot to bring down the state, creating distrust and bitterness toward
the DPRK through sheer lies and fabrications, frauds, deception and
speculations and conducting crafty operations to lure and abduct
citizens of the DPRK, pursuant to the scenarios of south Korean puppet
authorities and the U.S. for confrontation with the DPRK.
The south Korean puppet authorities will not dare deny these facts.
Those guilty deserve punishment.
It was not "unreasonable" but quite natural that the wicked elements
were detected and arrested as they tried to destabilize and overthrow
the DPRK. They admitted and confessed to their crimes, though belatedly.
They did not do so under "duress."
The puppet forces are impudently falsifying this stark reality, a
proof that they are diehard criminals steeped in plots and fabrications
to the marrow of their bones.
The above-said sophism would only add to their crimes. -0
