Recently, district courts in Japan made a judgment of terming the authorities’ measure of excluding the Korean schools from the application of tuition-free program for senior high schools, “legal”.
This is a violation of the World Declaration of Human Rights and relevant international laws as it is devoid of legal impartiality. And it is a filthy conduct openly patronizing the Japanese reactionaries’ discriminatory policy against the Koreans in Japan and suppression of their national education.
It is specified in the International Human Rights Protocol ratified by the Japanese government that foreigners residing in a relevant country shall be vested with the right to learn their native languages and carry forward their national culture.
The World Declaration of Human Rights adopted in 1948 stipulates that every person shall be equal before the law and is entitled to enjoy legal protection equally without any discrimination.
Moreover, it is the moral duty and responsibility of Japan, an assailant nation, to protect the Koreans in Japan, the direct victims of the colonial rule of the Japanese imperialists, and their descendants, and to provide them with all kinds of conditions.
However, the Japanese reactionaries have persecuted the Korean schools for decades since they were erected in Japan, regarding them as a thorn in their flesh. Not content with this, they have excluded Korean schools from tuition-free program for senior high schools, for the absurd reason that the educational activities of the Korean schools do not conform to the contents of education in Japan.
They are enforcing the base discriminatory policy against the students of Korean schools and even kindergarteners.
The dirty and coarse behaviour of the Japanese courts openly justifying the authorities’ national chauvinism clearly shows the extreme prejudice and sinister intention of the Japanese reactionaries to antagonize the DPRK and the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan, a dignified organization of overseas citizens of the DPRK, and obliterate the national education of Koreans in Japan.
The reckless behaviour of the shameless Japanese reactionaries who are adding to their past sins, far from making a sincere apology for and reflecting on their past crime-woven history, further stirs up the hatred of all the Korean people against Japan.
The Japanese reactionaries should prudently behave, well aware of the Korean people’s strong will to surely make Japan atone for its past crimes.
