面臨遞解,快將處決 :: he could be executed very soon

Yoo Sang-Joon has recently been arrested in China.  He is a native of North Korea and presently a South Korean citizen who has helped many desperate fellow North Koreans to fled the famine-stricken country over the last few years.  He is scheduled to appear in a court in Inner Mongolia, China, on 26 November (next Monday) at 9am.  It is very likely that he will be handed to North Korea, where he will likely be executed.  My prayer (and I believe it is also yours) is that he would be deported to South Korea instead of the North.  If you prefer, you may send an appeal to the Chinese Embassy at where you are, and/or the Chinese Minister of Justice, Ms. Wu Aiying, and/or Prime Minister Mr. Wen Jiabao.

現在從事人權工作的多年同袍傳來的信息,讓我不能釋懷 ...

Yoo Sang-Joon,南韓公民,原籍北韓。

不知多少年前,他在北韓飢荒裡失去妻兒,後來帶同小兒子偷渡中國途中失去小兒,之後輾轉到了南韓,並成為基督徒。

過去數年,他不斷潛回北韓,教導和協助朝夕不保無以為生的北韓同胞偷渡到中國。根據《泰晤士報》說,他是這幾年北韓人逃亡行動的主要策動人。

不久前他從北韓進入中國之後被捕了。

排期下星期一(11月26日)上午9時,在內蒙某法院審訊。

按照中國一貫慣例,他會被看作北韓非法入境者,遞解返北韓。而按照北韓慣例,他會在極短時間內被處決。

目前的盼望,是中國政府把他遣返南韓。

如果你相信或者渴望上主在這等事情的直接介入,請為Yoo Sang-Joon和其他已經逃到、正在逃到、將要逃到中國的北韓人的命運禱告。

或者,你可以嘗試電郵或傳真給中國司法部長吳愛英、溫家寶總理、及你所在國家的中國領事館,表達關注和期望。(聯絡資料在此
