SEOUL, Jan. 26 (Yonhap) -- A South Korean national detained by North Korea claimed Tuesday that a Seoul-based missionary group has launched campaigns against Pyongyang under the guidance of Seoul's spy agency.

Kim Kuk-gi made the remarks in a video uploaded on the North's main propaganda website, Uriminzokkiri.

He is one of three South Koreans detained by the communist country, facing criminal punishment after being sentenced to "a life of hard labor" on charges of spying for South Korea's intelligence agency.

"A (South Korean) missionary group has been proactive in daring to commit anti-North Korean, anti-human rights activities in China under the instruction and sponsorship of the (Seoul's) National Intelligence Agency," claimed Kim, who himself is a missionary.

"Church leaders in the South should issue an official apology to North Korea and make a thorough crackdown on the circle to prevent the church from lowering itself by making false testimonies," he said.
