S. Korean Sentenced to Prison Term
Pyongyang, August 19 (KCNA) -- The south Korean Chongju District Court on August 17 sentenced an inhabitant who praised the DPRK to a prison term on charges of the violation of the "Security Law", the south Korean Yonhap News reported.

The fascist authorities arrested and brought a complaint against him in May last year for the mere reason that he posted on Internet homepage articles praising the nuclear tests of the DPRK and exposing the conspiratorial nature of the "Cheonan" warship sinking case from July 2009 to March last year.

At several trials he justified his activities, shouting "Long live the great DPRK!" Enraged at this, the court inflicted penal servitude on him, claiming that he "praised the north, the anti-state organization," and "insulted the court at trials".
