The title of a recently released Yahoo! article is “Activists criticize reported NKorean repatriation” (Web-site/URL: http://news.yahoo.com/activists-criticize-reported-nkorean-repatriation-065706472.html). Repatriation is the process of returning a person to their place of birth or citizenship.
“Human rights groups have DEMANDED that North Korea guarantee the safety of nine of its citizens who reportedly fled to Laos, only to be apprehended and sent back home”. Of course, this WON’T happen because as we know, North Korea simply DOESN’T CARE about its people.
“Seven males and two females were flown home Tuesday (May 28 2013) via China despite a request from South Korea that Beijing not repatriate them, the Chosun Ilbo daily newspaper in Seoul reported Thursday (May 30, 2013), citing unidentified South Korean government officials. The Yonhap news agency cited a Foreign Ministry official in Seoul in its report that said the nine are aged 15 to 23“. Of course as we know this WON’T happen because China and North Korea ARE ON THE SAME PAGE as COMMUNIST countries.
According to UN High Commissioner For Human Rights Antonio Guterres, “UNHCR (the UN Commission For Human Rights) is DEEPLY CONCERNED about the safety and FUNDAMENTAL human rights of these individuals if they are returned” to North Korea” obviously, Well “human rights” are “fundamental” everywhere except in a handful of countries and unfortunately, North Korea is part of this minority group.
According to Lee Ho-taek, “head of a group that provides refugees with support”, “We are here to call on Laos NOT to deport North Korean defectors because there is concern they may be TORTURED when sent back” again obviously. North Korea along with China are “torture” CHAMBERS. China, of course, has those infamous “black jails” that Al Jazeera‘s MELISSA CHAN covered/talked about before China kicked her out (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NsN4-A1G5zc).
According to Phil Robertson, “deputy Asia director of Human Rights Watch”, “North Korea HAS TO COME CLEAN ON where these nine refugees are and publicly guarantee that they WILL NOT be harmed or RETALIATED AGAINST for having fled the country“. There are TWO things to note here. First, North Korea will NEVER “come clean on” human rights. Secondly, North Korea ALWAYS “retaliates” against dissidents, just like CHINA often does (CHEN GUANGCHEN, AI WEIWEI, etc.) “As a result of their return, they are at DIRE risk“, but again, of course, North Korea DOESN’T CARE.
Finally, according to Kim Eun-young, “an activist with the Seoul-based Citizens’ Alliance for North Korean Human Rights, (speaking) Thursday (May 30 2013)”, “It’s TRAGIC and DISAPPOINTING” obviously. “We FEAR (that) defectors will now feel more intimidated about trying to come to South Korea through Laos or other Southeast Asian countries” again obviously.
So, many North Koreans are being repatriated, in part by CHINA, into a life of HELL.
