DPRK's Just Measure for Self-Defence Hailed

Pyongyang, March 31 (KCNA) -- The DPRK Ministry of People's Security issued warrants of arrest for Fumiaki Yamata, Hiroshi Kato, Takayuki Noguchi and Ri Yong Hwa who were directly involved in the abduction of DPRK citizens in broad daylight in the guise of members of a "non-governmental organization." Minju Joson Friday in a signed commentary says that it is a very justifiable measure to defend the sovereignty of the DPRK and the interests of its citizens from the Japanese reactionaries' escalated hostile moves against it.
Terming the above-said persons the criminals who were directly involved in abducting DPRK citizens including returnees to their homeland from Japan and their children and Japanese women in the DPRK, the commentary goes on: What matters is that the abduction of DPRK citizens was by no means an accidental crime perpetrated by individual figures or organizations.
This was obviously a product of the deliberate, premeditated and organized crime perpetrated at the instigation of the Japanese government and under its backing and patronage, pursuant to its hostile policy towards the DPRK. The Korean people are becoming increasingly assertive that the DPRK should take a strong countermeasure including a physical retaliation against the Japanese reactionaries' hostile policy towards it and their plots.
Accordingly, the DPRK Ministry of People's Security issued warrants for the arrest of the persons concerned as the first step according to the relevant articles of the DPRK criminal law and the criminal procedure law and demanded the Japanese government extradite the criminals to the DPRK through a relevant channel. There is no reason for Japan that claims to be a "law-abiding state" to turn down the just demand of the DPRK.
