Compensation to Former Unconverted Long-Term Prisoners Urged in Britain
    Pyongyang, January 28 (KCNA) -- The British Association for the Study of Songun Policy and the British Friendship Society with Korea released a joint statement on Jan. 17 in support of the joint indictment issued by the former unconverted long-term prisoners. In the indictment they accused the successive fascist dictatorial regimes in south Korea of their thrice-cursed crimes against humanity and demanded a severe punishment of them. The statement said:
    The criminal acts perpetrated by the successive south Korean fascist regimes are monstrous atrocities which left an indelible stain on the human history. The above-said prisoners suffered much from different kinds of crimes committed by the former fascist dictators of south Korea.
    Many of them are still undergoing pain after becoming physically crippled.
    It is quite natural for them to demand compensation for the damage done to them.
    Those responsible for the crimes should be forced to stand trial and meet punishment.
    It is necessary to punish the remnants of the treacherous group of the Grand National Party who zealously supported the dictatorial regimes including Pak Kun Hye, daughter of the ill-famed "Yusin" dictator, in particular.
    We demand the GNP be disorganized and the unconverted long-term prisoners in south Korea be repatriated to the DPRK. We call on the world progressives to conduct a widespread movement supporting the joint indictment.
