Call for Return of Abductees from North Korea

Posted December. 03, 2003 23:18,   


One of the family members who called for a return of abductees cried when they illegally occupied the National Human Rights Commission of Korea on December 3. Family members launched an indefinite strike, requesting the government to respond to the petition. In the petition, family members remaining in South Korea asked the government to take proper action to learn about the abductees’ life or death situation. If abductees are found to be alive, they added, the government should urge North Korea to return them.
