S. Korean Solidarity for Progress Denounces IS
Pyongyang, September 1 (KCNA) -- The Solidarity for Progress of south Korea on Aug. 28 made public a statement in denunciation of the Intelligence Service (IS) for cooking up false cases.

The statement said that the IS driven to the tight corner for its crime of illegal interference in the election challenged the people by cooking up another false case.

It is unjust that the IS and prosecution forcefully searched houses and office rooms of a lawmaker from the Unified Progressive Party and those related to it, charging them with plotting rebellion, the statement said, and went on:

They are politicians who conducted legal activities for social progress as members of a political party.

If they had truly attempted rebellion as alleged by the authorities, there would not be the need to expose their identities.

The IS illegally opened the minutes of the south-north summit when the public voices grew louder demanding the total reform of the IS.

The case of plotting rebellion is the second political intervention and political operation aimed to mislead the public opinion demanding the probe into the truth, punishment of those responsible, total reform of the IS and the "president's" expression of her responsible stand, and downplay the crime.

The situation brings home to the people the urgency and importance of the probe into the truth about the IS's political operation and interference in the election and punishment of those responsible.

The suppression of the opposition party through the case is a distortion of the public waging candlelight actions, a challenge to the demand for the total reform of the IS and an act against history and democracy aimed to revive the "yusin" era.

We strongly demand the immediate stop and positive response to the people's candlelight action.
