Other government informants in .Washington, however, described (he Colson agreement as only granting! they already had. I Clark's public information officer said Colson was relieved of ihe Koje command on Clark's orders. North Korean Gen. Nam 11. chief Communist truce negotiator, brought up Colson's concessions at Ihe Korean armistice table in Panmunjom. He said Colson'j nole "openly admitted that treatment of war prisoners was Inconsistent with international law and in violation of the Geneva Convention; admitted forcible screening fof Red prisoners' and conclusively testified he-, fore. Ihe ivhole world to the iron-* clad fact that your so-called voluntary repatriation is solely the result of violence and forcible screening." He said also. "The commandant of your prisoner camp openly arl- mittert there's been bloodshed." The Defense Department said earlier that bloodshed and violence at the camp had been brought on! by the prisoners themselves in Iwn' riots, that Ihe prisoners had been grated in accord with the Geneva Convention, and that there had been no forcible screening—questioning of prisoners io rielermine whether they u-ant to be repatriated in event ot an armistice. 5-8 3-1 .5-1 r 7-1) I-S 3-4 1-2 1-1 '('0111 (iiued from Pasr 1) death" there from Allied attack ("olilil Keail hy l.l«lit Twn MP.s til Pamniin- joni- Cpl.
