Repatriation of POWs demanded

Pyongyang, November 22 (KCNA) — The secretariat of the pan-African movement issued a statement on November 12, demanding the repatriation of unconverted long-term prisoners including Kim In So, Kim Yong Thae and Ham Se Hwan in South Korea to the DPRK.


The statement defined this as the most serious human rights problem in the world.

The statement continued:

If the South Korean authorities ignore the solution to this problem today when the 21st century is at hand, they will not be able to avoid criticism from people around the world.

The South Korean authorities must show their will for reunification by taking measures to return all the unconverted long-term prisoners to the DPRK as they wish.

Robert Williams, vice-chairman of the Latin American and Caribbean Regional Committee for Support to Korea’s Reunification and general secretary of the Good Green Guyana, issued a statement on November 15, urging the South Korean authorities to take due measures to return the unconverted long-term prisoners to their hometowns in North Korea as they wish, rather than pay lip service to “humanitarianism.”
