KCNA Assails Crime Committed by GI against S. Korean Old Couple
| Pyongyang, March 2 (KCNA) -- A soldier belonging to the 2nd Division of the U.S. imperialist aggression troops present in south Korea broke into a house in Tongduchon City, Kyonggi Province, and assaulted an old couple with a lethal weapon on Feb. 26.
It is needless to say that this is the height of human rights abuses and an unpardonable insult to the dignity of the Korean nation.
This crime is by no means limited to this area and it is not the first of its kind, either.
The U.S. imperialists openly commit violence and murder against south Koreans at any place and any time regardless of age and sex.
Five cases of various crimes are committed by GIs in south Korea on a daily average. The number of the crimes disclosed before the world reaches hundreds of thousands.
Not a day passes in the U.S. military bases in different parts of south Korea without their crimes.
Typical examples of them are the incident of forcing hair cutting upon a Korean woman in Tongduchon, the incident of killing Yun Kum I, the mass-killings of Koreans in the U.S. air force base in Songthan and the incident of killing Sin Hyo Sun and Sim Mi Son.
The U.S. military bases and their vicinities are the strongholds of Yankees for committing murder, arson, destruction and plunder, their main attribute, and dens of evils and crimes.
This goes to prove that the U.S. military bases are nothing but nooses tightening the necks of the south Korean people.
This being a hard reality, the U.S. made no mention of the dismantlement of the U.S. military bases. Worse still, it is going so foolish as to let the above-said criminal go scot-free from the outset.
This once again betrays the arrogance of the occupiers behaving as rulers over south Korea, exercising extraterritorial rights.
All the Koreans clearly remember the fact that the U.S. declared "not guilty" the GIs who mercilessly killed two schoolgirls by driving their armored car over them in broad daylight and whisked them away to the U.S.
If the U.S. pays no heed to the demand of the south Korean people for taking a strong legal action against the criminal just as it did at that time, this will be a wanton violation of justice and conscience.
The south Korean people's misfortune and pain will go on and all the Koreans will not be able to escape disaster and catastrophe unless the U.S. military bases are dismantled.
