S. Koreas' Crimes against Ethics and Treachery under Fire
Pyongyang, January 4 (KCNA) -- The Secretariat of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea released a detailed report on Wednesday indicting the Lee Myung Bak group of traitors for its unprecedented brutal acts during the mourning over the great loss to the nation.

According to the report, no sooner had the important report of the DPRK on the demise of leader Kim Jong Il been released than traitor Lee Myung Bak convened a "state security meeting and "state council meeting" at which he issued an emergency alert posture to the puppet army and police and ordered them to keep themselves ready to go into military actions any time, vociferating about "the north's possible provocation" and "danger to the stability on the Korean Peninsula."

Lee ordered Chongwadae, administration, agencies and even overseas missions to work on round-the-clock emergency duty. He phoned his masters the U.S. and Japan, begging them for cooperation in the confrontation with the DPRK.

By his order, the puppet military instructed the whole puppet army to be on "alert posture b" to keep itself ready for war from half past twelve on Dec. 19. Chongwadae, administration and agencies were also put on emergency alert posture from the afternoon on the same day.

From the outset, the group of traitors totally disallowed not only condolatory visits but also expression of condolences, talking about "division of public opinion", "infringement upon principle" and "conflict inside the south."

It claimed official mourning can never be allowed, talking about "counter-action by separating people from the north's leadership" and hurting the supreme leadership of the DPRK by preposterously shifting on it the "final responsibility" for the warship "Cheonan" sinking and shelling on Yonphyong Island. While claiming that it expresses "sympathy" to the people in the north, far from mourning or expressing condolences, the group blustered "sympathy with them does not mean the expression of condolences" in a bid to downplay even the meaning of sympathy.

And the group described the "government's" statement as a very strategically and technically worked out one.

It went the lengths of blustering that "the north would not have imagined the south had gone to such pass".

While insisting that there can be no mourning, the group put up conditionalities that there should be invitation from the north if the parties of Ri Hui Ho and Hyon Jong Un wish to go to Pyongyang, the condolatory visit should be paid in a single day, they should come back as they are not allowed to attend the ceremony of bidding last farewell to the deceased. This was, in fact, an attempt to block the mourners' visit.

The group flatly turned down the request of the bereaved families of Rev. Mun Ik Hwan to allow their mourning. It rudely refused to allow the condolatory visits by the widow of former south Korean President Roh Moo Hyun and personages who came to Pyongyang when the October 4 declaration was adopted.

South Koreans of various circles were very sincere in their will to express condolences and pay condolatory visits over the great loss to the nation, but the Lee group brutally blocked them.

When south Koreans of various circles intended to send condolence messages, the puppet group invented complicated procedures and pretexts such as "applications for contact with inhabitants in the north," throwing obstacles and snatching all of them before they reached the north. It deleted all the expressions that courted its displeasure like the words "demise," "sorrow" and "condolences."

When various circles of south Korea expressed their intentions to dispatch mourners groups, the puppet group persistently blocked their condolatory visits, asserting "those visits may cause the worst division of public opinion and internal chaos" and "If mourners visits were allowed, it would be impossible to put the situation under control as an increasing number of them might throng to the north."

It prevented the personnel of its side in the Kaesong Industrial Zone from entering the mourning station in the zone, threatening them not to express condolences.

A particular mention should be made of the fact that the group scattered anti-DPRK leaflets, timed to coincide with the day of bidding last farewell to the leader when the earth and sky shook with fellow compatriots' bitter cries and the whole country turned into a veritable sea of wailers, rubbing salt into the wounds of the grief-stricken people.

The report labeled Lee the worst type anti-reunification element, traitor and pro-U.S. fascist maniac and chieftain of evils without an equal in the world.

The service personnel and people of the DPRK will surely force the puppet group to pay a thousand-fold price for hurting the most sacred dignity of the supreme leadership, the report noted, adding that it will keenly experience what dear price it will have to pay for its crimes.
