   Pyongyang, September 5 (KCNA) -- Espionage acts of a foreign intelligence service were disclosed and smashed some time ago in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
    The state security organ of the DPRK arrested the spies absorbed to the foreign intelligence service and intelligence agent who commanded them and seized their intelligence apparatuses.
    As brought to light during the investigation into the case and the statements of the arrested spies, the foreign intelligence service absorbed some unsound people out of the visitors of the DPRK to third countries by the method of money and girls, threat and blackmail and turned them into its paid spies in an attempt to spy on important military objects and strategic key-points related with the supreme interests of the DPRK.
    Their duty was to take photographs of an important military object in an area and confirm the spot co-ordinates and collect concrete data on the object with the help of the GPS after they received it. Their duty was also to obtain original texts of documents of the DPRK including the state and military secrets and the ideological tendencies of the people and, at the same time, to create illusion about the "free world" among senior officials and lure them out to third countries if possible.
    After it infiltrated the hired spies into the DPRK, the foreign intelligence service sent an intelligence agent to the DPRK under the guise of a trader to command their activities on the spot. He carried with him a digital camera battery to which the GPS was attached.
    He met the spies in secrecy and received results of their activities. And then, he handed over the GPS to them. As the headquarters of the intelligence service dictated, the agent gave to them a directive on collecting the secret on the object as early as possible.
    He went to the area surrounding the military object under the pretext of the "spot survey" and directly commanded the activities of the spies.
    The counter-intelligence officers of the DPRK who sharply watched every movement of the enemy arrested the spies and intelligence agent on a spot when they handed over the GPS and the collected data with each other.
    According to the judgment of experts, the intelligence apparatus consists of up-to-date highly efficient GPS processor, Flash and contact plate antenna branded with SONY. In connection with the case, a press conference was held at the People's Palace of Culture in Pyongyang on September 5.
    An officer of the Ministry of State Security of the DPRK, to begin with, informed the reporters of the content of the case and a video-tape showing the written pledge of a spy hired to the foreign intelligence service, scenes showing him committing crimes and others.
    Then reporters raised at the conference questions regarding the forms and methods of the ever-intensified anti-DPRK psychological war-fare of the enemy, dealing of the arrested criminals and others.
