Round-table Talks with Inhabitants Who Came Home
| Pyongyang, September 30 (KCNA) -- There took place at the Koryo Compatriots Hall on Monday round-table talks with inhabitants who came back to the DPRK after being taken away to south Korea due to the allurement and abduction operations of the south Korean puppet forces.
Pak Jin Gun, 49, who resided in Tongam-dong, Tanchon City and Jang Kwang Chol, 33, who resided in Ryonbong-dong No. 1, Hyesan City were present there.
They told how they were deceived by the intrigues of the puppet group before being taken away to south Korea.
Pak Jin Gun said he was taken away to south Korea in October 2011, caught in the tentacles of the Intelligence Service while roaming about in China after trespassing on the border with it in quest of money.
Jang Kwang Chol said he was taken to south Korea in March last year, fooled by the tricks of brokers tied with the Intelligence Service.
They noted that the puppet forces are becoming all the more pronounced in their moves to allure and abduct inhabitants of the DPRK to take them to south Korea.
They referred to the reality of the corrupt south Korean society.
The one year he spent in south Korea was the days of nightmare, Jang said.
Pak stressed that those who were taken to south Korea can hardly eke out their living as they can not get jobs without money.
Jang said that south Korean society is a dark society not only for those who had been abducted and taken away to it but for south Koreans.
Touching on the frantic smear campaign being staged by the puppet group against the DPRK over human rights, Pak and Jang said this was prompted by its sinister scenario to tarnish the international image of the DPRK and break its single-minded unity.
Jang said the group's anti-DPRK human rights campaign is based on lies, fabrications and intrigues.
Pak and Jang told how they came back to the care of the DPRK, cursing south Korean society.
Upon hearing in great shock the news of the press conferences given by the returnees to the DPRK, he decided to come back to the homeland, being prepared for punishment, Pak said. But he hesitated and wavered after hearing the lies cooked up by the south Korean puppet forces, he added.
It was only after he saw the TV footage of the round-table talks given by teenagers who were allured and almost taken to south Korea by the puppet forces in June that he came to realize it was all a whopping lie that the returnees to the DPRK were punished, Pak said.
Defying the appeasement of the police in charge who tried hard to convert him, he resolved to return to the homeland, not wanting to live in the dark land of south Korea and questioning if it is wrong to go back to native place, Pak said. Finally he succeeded in coming back to the DPRK despite disturbance, he noted.
Jang Kwang Chol said he was taken away to south Korea, being caught by flesh dealers but he always kept in his mind his dear homeland and his beloved wife and children.
He said he left home without saying to his wife where he was going. He added:
I cursed myself a thousand times asking myself where you are and what you are doing far away from the great embrace where the genuine life and dignity shine.
My heart was afire with the strong desire to return to the embrace of our party and the DPRK, and at last I managed to return to the motherland in July which I missed even in dreams.
The returnees noted in excitement that thanks to supreme leader Kim Jong Un, the people of the DPRK are the happiest in the world and the country is demonstrating its might as an invincible and powerful nation.
Pak Jin Gun noted that the motherland warmly embraced him and pardoned his sins, not punishing him even though he took the road of treachery. He can not find words to express his gratitude, Pak added.
He remarked that our socialist system under which the people of the country are living in a great harmonious family and our party's policy of loving the people are the best in the world, adding this is the truth he keenly realized as he had been under the differing social systems in the north and the south of Korea.
He expressed his determination to devotedly work for the most advantageous country.
