SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korean police have summoned an anti-Pyongyang activist for questioning hours after President Moon Jae-in appeared to criticize the activist’s campaign of sending propaganda leaflets into North Korea. Park Sang-hak recently said he flew hundreds of thousands of leaflets toward North Korea in defiance of a new law that criminalizes such activities. Park has said other activists would continue to launch leaflets across the border even if he is jailed. Moon said in a nationally televised speech that it’s “never desirable” to dampen relations with the North by violating inter-Korean agreements and local laws. South Korea has faced international criticism over the law that took effect in March.
