WFTU Statement on arrest of KGEU President
date : 2005/04/11 hit : 7095

We are shocked to learn that the  Korean Government Employees Union President Bro. KIM Young Gil  has been arrested on the 8th April and the repression against KGEU continues unabated. Already the KGEU General Secretary Bro. AHN Byeong Soon was arrested and imprisoned last month. We strongly condemn the arrest of the important functionaries of the Government Employees Union of Korea and repressive attitudes of the Government against their union. The struggle of the KGEU towards reinstatement of the dismissed and laid-off workers is fully justified which will have to be met by the Govt. of Korea. We demand the release of President and General Secretary of KGEU immediately and the stoppage of police repression.
We call upon the affiliates and friendly organisations of WFTU in the Asia-Pacific region to extend their fullest support and solidarity to the struggle of the KGEU,  demanding the release of its President and General Secretary. In case, the Government of Korea fails to respond positively actions of solidarity will be followed.

Dy. General Secretary
