Park Geun Hye Regime Can Never Evade Responsibility for Ferry Disaster: KCNA Commentary
Pyongyang, May 28 (KCNA) -- The ferry Sewol disaster was not an accidental one but a hideous massacre committed by the Park Geun Hye regime of south Korea.

The Park group made public a "talk to the people" and is now going busy taking follow-up measures in a bid to evade the blame for the crime.

In the "talk" Park begged the south Koreans for pardon, requesting for one more chance.

She shifted the blame for the disaster on to the maritime police, the Ministry of Security and Administration and the Ministry of Maritime Fisheries. She talked about a number of "steps" including the disbandment of the maritime police, establishment of state security agency and the enactment of a special law including the fact-finding committee.

She has been busy, ostensively dismissing Prime Minister Jong Hong Won, Director of the Intelligence Service Nam Jae Jun and Chief of the security office of Chongwadae Kim Jang Su who aroused anger of the bereaved families and other people and calling for a "Cabinet reshuffle".

However, this is not a fundamental solution as it is just a stopgap measure to tide over the ruling crisis and a delaying tactics to prop up power.

In fact, the puppet group has neither probed the truth into the disaster nor taken any measure to rescue the remainder of those missing although more than a month has passed since the accident.

In five weeks since April 16 when the accident occurred, it hurled a total of more than 1 700 intelligence policemen into Tanwon High School in Ansan, the joint incense burning center and the scene of accident on Jin Island, touching off anger among the bereaved families and other people.

In the evening when Park made public the "talk to the people", police belonging to the Tanwon Police Station were spotted while shadowing bereaved families.

At a time when the whole of south Korea turned into a mourner's house, Park invited U.S. President Obama to tour it, far from concentrating efforts on bringing the confusion under control. Only a few hours after making public the talk, she set out for overseas trip.

The racket for taking "measures" for coping with the Sewol tragedy kicked up by the Park group every day is just aimed to deceive the public and bar her approval rate from sinking.

That's why the public is unanimous in commenting that it is not a normal way of thinking to take measures for investigating and threatening bereaved families and other people behind the scene while making an apology to them.

The Sewol disaster is a product of all evils endemic in the Park regime plagued with all kinds of diseases and blamed for its retrogressive, unpopular and unethical nature.

With no sleight of hand can the Park group evade the responsibility for the Sewol tragedy.
