The Swiss Committee for Supporting the Independent and Peaceful Reunification of Korea sent a letter of protest to the Japanese prime minister on April 5 to denounce the Japanese reactionaries for cracking down on the General Association of Korean Residen

Protest Letter to Japanese Prime Minister

The letter recalled that at the instruction of the security department of the Tokyo Police Agency, the Osaka Prefectural riot police searched six places including the office of the Osaka Prefectural Association of Korean Workers in Commerce in Japan, shops owned by Koreans in Japan and their houses in March and the Japanese authorities have been engaged in a smear campaign against Chongryon over the "abduction issue" already settled. It strongly protested against such actions.

The letter went on:

The bestial suppression of Chongryon by the Japanese authorities and police is undisguised fascist terrorism against all the Koreans in Japan and a continuation of the blood-stained history of the Japanese imperialists and militarists in which they suppressed and discriminated against the Koreans.

This is, at the same time, an act of aggression against the DPRK whose citizens are protected by Chongryon.

The fascist suppression of Chongryon and Koreans in Japan is an undisguised perfidy to the DPRK-Japan Pyongyang Declaration in which the two countries promised to normalize their relations and the assurances made by the Japanese prime minister that Japan would be friendly toward Chongryon and Koreans in Japan so that they may not be exposed to any discrimination.

The Japanese government repeated such promise at the talks for the normalization of the bilateral relations in February this year. We demand the Japanese government stop at once all the discriminative and terrorist acts against Chongryon and Koreans in Japan and honor what it promised to fulfill in the DPRK-Japan Pyongyang Declaration.
