Amnesty to Be Granted in DPRK
Pyongyang, July 16 (KCNA) -- The DPRK will grant an amnesty to those who had been convicted of the crimes against the country and people on the occasion of the 70th founding anniversary of the DPRK.
The amnesty will take effect from Aug. 1.
The DPRK Cabinet and relevant organs will take practical measures to help the released people settle down to normal working life.
The Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly of the DPRK promulgated a decree in this regard on July 12.
The decree said it is the intrinsic demand of Korean-style socialist system and the consistent principle of state activities to protect the independent and creative life of the popular masses and make selfless, devoted efforts for them by thoroughly applying the people-first principle, the most vivid expression of the Juche-oriented view on the people and people-centered philosophy. -0-
