Korean in U.S. Terms S. Korea Tundra of Human Rights
| Pyongyang, September 20 (KCNA) -- Member of the Federation of Koreans in U.S. Ri Jun Mu posted an article titled "Alarm Sounded for Human Rights in South Korea" on the internet on September 12.
The article said south Korea tops the suicide rate in the world.
To make matters worse, high-profile crimes have become rife in society, throwing people into uneasiness. it said, adding:
Not a day passes without sexual abuses against little girls and such horrible criminal cases in which passers-by are lured and abducted before sexually assaulted and killed and their bodies are secretly buried.
Nevertheless, the south Korean conservative authorities declared they would kick up a noisy conspiratorial "human right" racket against the north with the International Pen Conference slated to take place in Seoul as a momentum. This is a blatant challenge to the north which has pursued the most popular policy in the world.
A sexual abuse broke out in Thongyong of South Kyongsang Province less than a month since the latest case of sexual assault. This clearly indicates the real picture of south Korean society where Yankee style corrupt culture prevails and the people are under the conservative forces' misrule.
Mothers are staging candlelight demonstrations with tears in their eyes despite heavy rain, demanding a severe punishment of criminals. They are, at the same time, condemning the conservative authorities for their incompetence.
According to information recently released by the south Korean police agency, 82 000 sexual assaults broke out for five years from 2007 to the previous year, but criminals are still at large in most cases.
The victims' parents are bitterly angered at the conservative ruling forces who are only trumpeting about the "human rights in the north" instead of trying hard to settle their human right issues though they have reduced south Korea to a huge cemetery of human rights.
Beside the above-said problems, there are countless human rights issues pending urgent solutions.
The issue of workers, industrial disaster, discrimination against women, school registration fees and human right abuses committed by the U.S. forces in south Korea, etc. remain unresolved, far from being put on agenda.
