Police endorse charges for man who said ROK should accept North Korean invasion

Activist allegedly violated National Security Act by making pro-DPRK statement and contacting anti-state group

South Korean police have recommended prosecutors charge an activist for making pro-North Korean statements and contacting a pro-DPRK organization in Japan, after he reportedly said Seoul should acquiesce if Pyongyang starts a war to unify the peninsula. 

The police’s referral of Kim Gwang-soo’s case to prosecutors comes as the U.S. has warned that South Korea’s crackdown on activists for violating the National Security Act (NSA) limits freedom of speech and expression.
