S. Korea Demands Heavy Penalties for Rev. Han Sang Ryol
Pyongyang, December 25 (KCNA) -- The puppet Seoul District Prosecutor's Office demanded ten years in prison and ten years of suspension of qualifications for pro-reunification champion Rev. Hang Sang Ryol on charges of the violation of the notorious "National Security Law", according to MBC of south Korea.

The prosecutors charged that he visited the north without a prior consent of the "government" and praised the north while staying there and led the action for pulling down the statue of MacArthur in September 2005, sympathizing with the assertion of the north.

In this connection various organizations of south Korea accused the prosecutors of demanding ten years in prison for Rev. Han Sang Ryol, a penalty unprecedented in the past decade.

The prosecutors brought against him charges of what they called "reception of instructions," taking issue even with his anti-U.S. and anti-war activities in the past, they noted, adding this is arousing great concern.
