The Ministry of State Security, the Ministry of People's Security and the Central Public Prosecutors Office of the DPRK Wednesday released the following joint statement:
Taken aback by the DPRK advancing at a dazzling speed along the immutable orbit of independence, Songun and socialism despite whatever turmoil of history, the enemies have reached extremely reckless and dangerous phase in their last-ditch efforts.
This is evidenced by a series of disclosure of hideous state-sponsored terrorism hatched by the enemies targeting the supreme leadership of the DPRK.
A revelation showed that Park Geun Hye of south Korea pushed forward the operation of "removing the north's leadership" in collusion with the Intelligence Service during her tenure, in the wake of the recent detection of a group of hideous terrorist criminals who were infiltrated by the CIA of the U.S. and the puppet IS into the DPRK for the purpose of state-sponsored terrorism against its supreme leadership with the use of bio-chemical substance. This is touching off the surging indignation of the army and people of the DPRK.
It was disclosed that Park Geun Hye had pushed forward the "operation to replace the supreme leadership of the north" in secrecy since the end of 2015 and even the "assassination" plot was included in the secret operational plan that was spearheaded by IS.
At that time Park ignored the experts' report that "the north's regime change will be difficult" but welcomed IS report to the effect that "the situation is instable in the north and therefore, regime change can be possible" and examined the IS secret operational plan targeting "replacement of the north's leadership" and directly signed it.
The villains even thought about disguising the operation as car or train accident, while calling for paying special attention so that their involvement would not be revealed, as they worried that the successful operation may spill over into an armed conflict. But the plan was not put into practice under strict vigilance in the north and afterwards, the secret operational plan was automatically scrapped with Park Geun Hye's impeachment that led to the regime change in the south.
The facts clearly prove that the enemies, judging that with nothing can they check the DPRK and bring it into "submission" or lead it to "change", are employing every possible vicious means and method to put into practice the plan of "replacement of the north's leadership" while pinning hope on it.
The Ministry of State Security, the Ministry of People's Security and the Central Public Prosecutors Office of the DPRK state as follows as the enemies' moves to stifle the DPRK at any cost have reached the extremely grave phase of committing hideous state-sponsored terrorism targeting the supreme leadership of the DPRK:
1. We declare at home and abroad that we will impose death penalty on traitor Park Geun Hye and ex-Director of the puppet Intelligence Service Ri Pyong Ho and their groups, criminals of hideous state-sponsored terrorism who hatched and pressed for the heinous plot to hurt the supreme leadership of the DPRK.
The supreme leadership of the DPRK is a symbol of the dignity and might of the DPRK and it represents the life and destiny of the army and people of the DPRK.
It is the resolute will of our army and people regarding it as their life to safeguard the headquarters of the revolution to ferret out those keen on hurting the security of the DPRK supreme leadership wherever they might be on the earth and mercilessly cut their dirty bodies to pieces.
Clearly stipulated in the DPRK Criminal Code is that all those who organized, took part or pursued state-sponsored terrorism targeting the supreme leadership of the DPRK are subject to criminal prosecution irrespective of nationality and that no statute of limitations is applicable to such crime.
The Ministry of State Security, the Ministry of People's Security and the Central Public Prosecutors Office of the DPRK, whose supreme mission is to safeguard the leader, solemnly declare at home and abroad that they decided to put traitor Park Geun Hye and former puppet Intelligence Service Director Ri Pyong Ho and their group to capital punishment as they hatched and pushed forward the hideous state-sponsored terrorism targeting the supreme leadership of the DPRK, in reflection of our army and people's will for merciless punishment and according to the DPRK Criminal Code.
IS men, to say nothing of Park Geun Hye and Ri Pyong Ho group, can never make any appeal even though they meet miserable dog's death any time, at any place and by whatever methods from this moment.
2. The south Korean authorities have to hand over traitor Park Geun Hye and former IS Director Ri Pyong Ho and their groups to the DPRK at once under international convention as they committed hideous state-sponsored terrorism against the supreme leadership of the DPRK.
It is stipulated in 1994 UN General Assembly resolution "Declaration on Measures to Eliminate International Terrorism" that in case a international terrorist criminal is within the territory of a country, it should arrest him or her to be punished through its criminal trial or extradite the criminal to the victimized country to be severely punished.
Paragraph D of Article 16 Extradition of the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime stipulates, "If a relevant party that makes extradition conditional on the existence of a convention receives a request for extradition from another state party with which it has no extradition convention, it may consider this Convention the legal basis for extradition in respect to any offence to which this article applies."
As was made public through a statement of the Ministry of State Security in May, the Park Geun Hye and Ri Pyong Ho group deserve death by dismemberment for their shuddering and hideous state-sponsored crimes committed so far at the instigation and under manipulation of the U.S., kingpin of terrorism.
The recently disclosed state-sponsored terrorist attempt is an extremely grave and vicious organized crime committed by the puppet IS targeting the supreme leadership of the DPRK and traitor Park Geun Hye and Ri Pyong Ho group, direct organizers of the crime, are top class criminals who are obliged to face the heaviest penal responsibility under the DPRK Criminal Code.
The south Korean authorities should hand Park Geun Hye and Ri Pyong Ho group, organizers of the hideous international terrorist crimes, over to the DPRK without delay under international convention and laws and regulations.
The south Korean authorities have to judge themselves what adverse effect their act of shunning this crucial demand related to the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK will have on the future north-south relations.
3. We declare that in case the U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces again attempt at hideous state-sponsored terrorism targeting the supreme leadership of the DPRK, we will carry out summary execution without advance notice on those who organize, take part in or pursue the plot, under wartime law.
The DPRK and the U.S. are in the state of ceasefire and technically at war, in fact, after the armistice agreement was concluded in 1953.
Therefore, wartime law is to be applied for all the hostile acts and provocations between the two belligerent parties.
Accordingly, all the hostile acts arising in relations between the north and the south have to be handled under wartime law.
In fact, terrorist act against the leadership of the other party in belligerent relations can never be tolerated as it is the height of military provocation and the hideous crime that can spark off the worst crisis such as the outbreak of a war.
We officially declare that if the U.S. and the south Korean puppet forces again attempt at state-sponsored terrorism against the supreme leadership of the DPRK, we will track down those who organized, took part in and pursued the plot and carry out the summary execution of them without advance notice under wartime law.
Whether such crime is committed within the territory of the DPRK or outside it, we will mercilessly carry out the punishment in the name of our people in field by our style merciless punishment measure.
We make it clear once again that those who dare challenge the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK should never hope of staying alive under the sky.
We do not hide that should the U.S. and the south Korean authorities defy this warning and challenge our resolute measure, they will be made to pay a dear price in an irresistible physical way.
Those who dare challenge the sun of the sky can never evade divine punishment.
