Gag on Freedom of Speech in S. Korea
Pyongyang, April 22 (KCNA) -- The puppet Seoul Central District Court of south Korea sentenced Jo Jung Won, representative of the Internet media agency, to two-year prison term on the charge of violation of the "National Security Law".

The court charged him, who posted on Internet website articles and animations praising the Juche idea, the Songun politics of the DPRK, with "crime of spreading enemy-benefiting files".

Protesting against this ruling, Jo Jung Won expressed wrath at the absurd action of gagging on pressman's freedom of thought and expression by invoking the NSL which has had no justification to exist any longer.
