UK KFA Refutes slanderous attack by Daily Star


On the 18th of June  the "Daily Star " online carried an article " Like bombing the Queen' Kim's man in UK says prisoner in coma DESERVED gulag". In a textbook example of inaccurate , distorted and biased reporting the Daily Star failed to tell its readers that the interview with UK KFA Chairman Dr Dermot Hudson actually took place on the 4th of March 2017 ( nearly 4 months )and not recently as Michael Havis tries to mislead his readers. At the time the medical condition of US national Otto Frederick Warmbier was unknown to Dr Hudson and indeed most people except DPRK medical staff.
  Also at no point during the 15 minute interview that Havis conducted with Dr Hudson ,did Dr Hudson use the words " Deserved the Gulag " .This is an invention by Havis . For one there is no such thing as a Gulag in the DPRK , Gulags were prison camps in the former Soviet Union . The word Gulag is unknown in the DPRK and the word means nothing in Korean.
  In the interview given to Havis , Dr Hudson actually pointed that Warmbier's case was complicated by the hostile relations between the DPRK and the US.
  What really happened was that  Havis(the Daily Star journalist) was found hiding in bushes secretly photographing the picket , when challenged he identified himself as a Daily Star journalist but failed to produce an NUJ press card . Why did Havis if he was a legitmate journalist need to hide in bushes and furtively photograph the picket.After some discussion Dr Hudson allowed Havis to interview him. Havis has also used pictures of the UK KFA picket on the 4th of March without permission .
  The "Daily Star " is a lying pro US, pro-south Korean puppet , dirty tabloid which often fills its pages with  pornography.
  Of course what the attack on UK KFA by the "Daily Star " shows  it is is UK KFA who are the ones defending the DPRK and doing the hard work  !
   As to the Warmbier case , it should be noted that Warmbier was returned to the US on a special military aircraft, not a civil plane, which made a stopover at a US military base in Japan  therefore Warmbier is more than a simple US college student or civilian . No one has said anything about the fact that the DPRK looked after him for a year at its own expense.  It should be remembered that no peace treaty has ever been concluded between the DPRK and the US ,so both countries are technically still at war and Warmbier was the citizen of an enemy state who carried out a hostile act . Those combatants not in uniform and spies do not have the protection of the Hague and Geneva conventions. If the US is so worried about its citizens getting arrested and detained in the DPRK then it should pull the troops out of south Korean ,conclude a peace treaty and end its hostile policy.
