And remember the Americans POWs reported alive in North Korea decades after the war…
“On Dec. 11, 1969, Korean Airlines flight NAMC YS-11 was flying from Gangwon, South Korea, to Gimpo International Airport when it was hijacked and forced to land in North Korea. Of the fifty individuals kidnapped, eleven never made it back to their original country. Hwang Won, the father of Hwang In-Cheol, was one of the 11.
The younger Hwang has now been protesting for his father’s return for two decades. In 2010, he appealed to the United Nations Human Rights Council, and, in 2012, he filed a lawsuit against the North Korean hijacker who kidnapped his father.”
Hwang In-Cheol is a South Korean who has been advocating for the release of his father from North Korea. On Dec. 11th, 2021, I was his interpreter on the 52nd anniversary of the tragedy that befell his family.
