S. KOREA LEFTIST PARTY FURIOUS OVER SEDITION CHARGES

0

SEOUL: A far-left South Korean party reacted angrily on Thursday to a “fabricated” effort by the national spy agency to charge some of its leading members with plotting to overthrow the government. The United Progress Party described raids on its offices on Wednesday by National Intelligence Service (NIS) officers as a “mad crackdown” to deflect attention from a scandal involving NIS interference in last year’s presidential election. The NIS made three initial arrests on rare charges of seeking to instigate an armed insurrection in support of North Korea.
