Public Is Best Judge
Pyongyang, March 12 (KCNA) -- A rumor that south Korea's Lee Myung Bak was dead had swept throughout the Democratic People's Republic of Korea on Saturday.

In this regard, Tokko Hyon Song, living in Phyongchon District, Pyongyang, told KCNA:

"I will feel relieved if Lee Myung Bak dies as the rumor says. The article carried by the daily Rodong Sinmun Sunday is indicative of public sentiments. I believe that resentment toward the Lee group of traitors has turned to be the rumor.

As there is a saying 'the public is the best judge', the Lee group, heinous traitors to the nation, will find no a shelter in this land and sky."

Jong In Bok, living in Phyongsong City, South Phyongan Province, said:

"Even if Lee Myung Bak, little different to a beast, died, it is needless to pin hope on the south Korean regime. But, the rumor represents the surging indignation against the Lee group.

The public has already sentenced a death penalty to Lee. Now, death only awaits him."

On Saturday, a rumor that Lee Myung Bak died of heart attack had swept Pyongyang and other local areas across the country, which had driven the local people to an ecstasy of joy.
