Release Political Prisoners in South Korea

Merry Christmas! Greeting Message from the Korean Committee to Save the Victims of ‘Lawmaker Lee Seok-ki Insurrection Conspiracy Case’

Thank you for your generous interest, support and encouragement for the release of all the prisoners of conscience in Korea.

Despite your solidarity, Lee Seok-ki (Former lawmaker of the UPP), Han Sang-gyun (Chairperson of the KCTU) and other victims are still in prison. However, 6 leaders of religious groups in South Korea, numerous NGOs, human rights groups, legal group and many civil society groups, are calling for the release of all prisoners of conscience with one voice. 

In addition, the problem of the prisoners of conscience and the amendment of the National Security Law in Korea came up in the third UN UPR in November 2017. Amnesty International and Forum Asia request the release of prisoners of conscience. 

We hope that love and freedom will be passed on to the prisoners of conscience just as Jesus took Paul out of prison on the holy Christmas day.

As you celebrate the glory of this miraculous season, may your home be filled with love, peace, and joy. May these blessings follow you throughout the New Year.

Merry Christmas!
