Hurry-Up Trial in China for NK Activist

Trial Set for Monday, Nov. 26

Your quick help is needed – Please immediately write to the Chinese authorities listed below, urging them to release the very brave North Korean activist, Yoo Sang-joon, who is now a South Korean citizen. He tragically lost his young son as he tried to escape from China and has since been working to rescue other North Koreans from danger in China.

LFNKR has learned that Yoo was arrested near the Mongolian border and Mr Yoo is due to be tried in Inner Mongolia, China at 9 am on Monday 26th November 2007.

The trial date was set unusually quickly. It is felt that Chinese authorities may be seeking to sweep this issue away quickly before international attention can be brought to bear, especially in light of the forthcoming Beijing Olympics.

Mr Yoo’s arrest and story were reported in The Sunday Times on 18th November 2007. The article ‘Death awaits Korea’s escape mastermind’ can be viewed at
