University in US Recognizes LFNKR Director Noguchi
University Website Mentions Noguchi’s New Book
Arkansas State University posted an article, Thursday June 3rd, on its school news website, Inside ASU, describing the new book written by alumnus Takayuki Noguchi. The book, entitled Escaping with North Korean Defectors, relates his experiences in China as he helped North Korean refugees escape to freedom.
Noguchi was eventually arrested, tried and imprisoned for his humanitarian work. After serving 8 months of a 5 year sentence, he was expelled from China. Now, with the release of this book (in Japanese only), Noguchi draws aside the veil of secrecy that had kept this true story from being told.
