Students and graduates of a pro-Pyongyang school in the city of Kitakyushu have filed a damages suit seeking ¥7.37 million from the government for allegedly discriminating against Korean schools by excluding them from a tuition waiver program.

In the suit filed Thursday with the Kokura branch of the Fukuoka District Court, the plaintiffs — 67 current and former students of the Kyushu Korean junior and senior high school — said their right to equality was denied.
