Rodong Sinmun Denounces Japanese Reactionaries' Gangsterism
Pyongyang, March 12 (KCNA) -- The Japanese public security authorities recently mobilized at least 200 armed policemen under the pretext of "investigation" and forcibly searched institutions under the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon) and seized things, on the "suspicion of unlawful export" of computers to their homeland.

Commenting on this, Rodong Sinmun Monday says:

It can never be tolerated as this is an illegal act of gangsterism to impair the authority and prestige of the dignified DPRK and obliterate Chongryon by stirring up bitterness toward the DPRK and Chongryon.

The search was launched right after the funeral for the chairman of the Central Standing Committee of Chongryon that came right after the unexpected loss of general secretary Kim Jong Il. The unparalleled violation committed by the Japanese reactionaries bereft of an elementary etiquette showed that their moves to obliterate the patriotic movement of Chongryon have reached the height.

It is their aim to case Chongryon, create confusion and tarnish its image and thus touch off animosity towards the DPRK in Japan's society and create terror-ridden atmosphere against Chongryon.

The economic activities of Koreans in Japan are their inviolable right that no one can plunder or harm.

The Japanese reactionaries will have to take on the responsibility for catastrophic outcomes to be entailed by their sordid moves against the DPRK and Chongryon.
