North Korean media slams South Korean party’s recruitment of prominent defector

Article denounces Liberty Korea Party, though does not mention former DPRK diplomat Thae Yong Ho's decision to run

Externally-focused North Korean state media on Thursday lambasted Ji Seong-ho, a prominent North Korean defector recently recruited by South Korea's main opposition party.

The article is the first from the Uriminzokkiri to comment on the South's decision to recruit high-profile defectors such as Ji and former DPRK diplomat Thae Yong Ho ahead of a parliamentary election in April this year.
