South Korea Barring North Korean Video

[Media Source*]

(Posted on BNN)

Apparently a video showing the public executions of prisoners in North Korea, (something that the regimes denies even existing) has been barred from being played in South Korea despite the fact of it's widespread broadcast in Japan.

"We have told of many public executions [in the North]. But officials in Seoul always ask us for material evidence," says Pak Sang Huk, an escapee from the North. "Now that we have evidence, they don't want to see it.... The people who brought this tape through China were speechless when they visited KBS [Korean Broadcast Service] studios, and were shunned." Mr. Pak claims those who filmed the executions risked their lives to do so.

It seems that South Korea is more intent on maintaining it's "Sun-Shine Policy" than in concerns over how their northern brethren are treated. Seems like they are playing the "brother's keeper" game to me.

March 1st 2005, the place is Huiryeoung City. North Korean people mobilized for the public execution. N-TV reported the number of people crowded here is about one thousand. This day, the National Security Agents in Huiryeoung city stood in every corner of in downtown city and collected people to attend the public execution.

Two people tied on wooden pillars for the execution in front of the public. (1.17 identified as Factory workers, their names are Choi jae gon and Park Myung Gil. They were executed on charge of ‘assisting for defection.’)

11 people being dragged to the place for public trial.

US and Japanese sources describe a practice of stuffing rocks in the mouths of the accused - making them unable to shout out last words against the regime.

I do not know what is more outrageous. The fact that North Korea continues to practice such forms of "justice" or the silence of South Korea.
