Suppression of S. Korean Confederation of Trade Unions under Fire
Pyongyang, July 13 (KCNA) -- The south Korean Confederation of Trade Unions made public a statement against the public security authorities' suppression of the confederation, according to the south Korean on-line paper Thongil News on July 9.

The police raided the houses of the incumbent director for reunification and the former chairman for reunification of the confederation, the statement noted, branding it as a deliberate suppression to tide over the ruling crisis after the ferry Sewol disaster.

At least 10 searchers were involved in the search of just one house, an act pursuant to a plan to find other charges as the suspicions about them were too unreasonable, the statement held, and went on:

It is impossible to expect anything from the present regime which relies on the outdated suppressive mechanism to get rid of crisis.

The confederation would strongly react to the suppression.
