From British daily The Morning Star:
A SOUTH Korean court has sentenced two left-wing activists to at least two years in prison for establishing a solidarity group to improve relations with North Korea.
The Seoul Central District Court convicted Choi Han-Wook and Kang Jin-Goo on Tuesday of violating the broadly worded National Security Law, which was established during the cold war era. …
Court spokesman Kwon Tae-hyung said that Mr Choi and Mr Kang had received sentences of 24 months and 30 months respectively. …
The court concluded that the Solidarity for Practice of the South-North Joint Declaration (SPSNJD) group is “pro-enemy.” …
The SPSNJD said in a statement that it only aims to promote peace on the divided Korean peninsula.
It also accused the court of using an “old-fashioned” security law to return South Korean society to the cold war era.
Leftwingers, liberals and human rights groups have long urged Seoul to repeal the law, which they say has been used to penalise groups opposed to the government.
