South Korea Supreme Court upholds sedition ruling against ex-MP

SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korea's Supreme Court upheld a sedition conviction against a former leftist member of parliament for inciting armed revolt, backing the government's crackdown on pro-North Korea activism under a controversial state security law.

Conservative President Park Geun-hye this month rejected the idea that the National Security Law should be abolished because North Korea remained a threat, affirming the government's push to prosecute those who vocally support the reclusive North's regime.
