ROKG stance regarding flying leaflets and
floating bottles to the North
June 10, 2020
o The ROKG has decided to file a complaint against ‘Fighters for a
Free North Korea’ (Head, Park Sang-hak) and ‘Kuensaem’ (Head, Park
Jeong-oh) for violating the Inter-Korean Exchange and Cooperation Act,
and begin procedures to cancel their status as non-profit corporations.
o The ROKG judged that the two groups violated the inbound and
outbound regulations of the Inter-Korean Exchange and Cooperation Act
by flying leaflets and releasing plastic bottles toward North Korea.
Such activities, directly going against agreements reached by the
leaders of the two Koreas, are considered by the Government to have
harmed public interests by creating tensions between the South and the
North and posing a risk to the lives and safety of residents living in
the border area.
