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.
