South Korea ignores refugees


a succinct analysis of the incident.
foreign dispatches

The South Korean Embassy in Laos allegedly ignored pleas for help from three young North Koreans held by Lao authorities who could be deported to their Stalinist home country. Hiroshi Kato, the head of Japanese activist group Life Funds for North Korean Refugees, on Thursday revealed the identity of the young defectors and is working for their release. According to Kato, Choi Hyang, Choi Hyuk and Choi Hyang-mi are being held in a detention center near the capital

Good job, Kato, Shame on SK embassy.
Japanese government should work harder to help the refugees.
