Repatriation of unconverted long-term prisoners called for

Pyongyang, December 1 (KCNA) — Nuran Nabie, secretary general of the Bangladesh-Korea Friendship Association, on November 25 sent a letter to the chairman of the UN Commission on Human Rights demanding the repatriation of unconverted long-term prisoners in South Korea.


In the letter he recalled that a number of North Koreans taken prisoner in the Korean War (1950-1953) have been put to inhuman torture, though they were wounded, serving prison terms in South Korea for more than 30 years.

He called upon the UN Commission on Human Rights to urge the South Korean authorities to take a measure for the repatriation of unconverted long-term prisoners, who have been separated from their families by force for nearly 50 years, so that they may be reunited with them.
