KR Tribunal Shouldn’t Rely On Spirit House for Honesty

I was really surprised by “Spirit House Blessed to Keep Tribunal Honest” (April 1-2, pages 3), which stated that judges will ask all witnesses and suspects at the trial whether they have sworn to tell the truth in front of the spirit house.

Judges and prosecutors assigned to the tribunal should work hard to find the reality and proof of the crimes of the KR regime. If they depend on the spirit house or a spiritualist, the trial won’t meet international standards.<>
