Disbandment of Opposition Party Termed Illegal in S. Korea
Pyongyang, December 9 (KCNA) -- Jurists' organizations in south Korea at a joint seminar in Yonsei University on Dec. 5 termed the regime's move to dissolve a progressive political party illegal.

The speakers said that many jurists have expressed differing views as to the request for judgment on the disbandment of the Unified Progressive Party.

In particular, the passage of the bill on the request without the presence of the chief executive was a fault and can never be justified, they said.

They termed it an abuse of power.
