North Korean defectors in South Korea are afraid of Moon

 

We should be very worried about Moon Jae-in
May 15, 2017

Is South Korea’s new president, Moon Jae-in, forming a cabinet or a politburo? As I’ve written here, there is long been good reason to be worried. Moon has a long association with Minbyun, the hard-left lawyers’ group that is acting as Pyongyang’s law firm in South Korea by using the courts to wage lawfare against refugees, in violation of their human rights. He was chairman of the campaign of Roh Moo-hyun, the “anti-American” and “a little crazy” president who rode to power on the shoulders of a violent mob that attacked, spat on, and threw firebombs at American soldiers. As Roh’s Chief of Staff, Moon decided to seek Pyongyang’s input before abstaining from a U.N. resolution denouncing severe human rights abuses against its people, and then lied about it. – See more at: http://freekorea.us/2017/05/15/25409/#sthash.QymOitIC.dpuf

The most alarming development of all may be Moon’s choice of Im Jeong-seok as his Chief of Staff. Im was jailed in the 1980s for three-and-a-half years after accompanying North Korea propaganda star Lim Soo-kyung (now a lawmaker in Moon’s party, and discussed in this OFK post for a drunken 2012 tirade against North Korean defectors and human rights activists) during an illegal visit to Pyongyang.

Yeah… A few days ago, right after the election, North Korean defectors showed up in Japanese news TV and said the same thing.. One of them even mentioned that she wants a help from Japan and she might have to defect from South Korea to Japan.

North Korea ex-defector wants to defect from South Korea

10日放送の「情報ライブ ミヤネ屋」(日本テレビ系)で、韓国滞在の脱北者が、新大統領の誕生を受けて日本への亡命を訴える場面があった。

番組では、9日に投開票された韓国大統領選で、革新系最大政党「共に民主党」の文在寅(ムン・ジェイン)氏の当選を受けて、韓国に滞在する脱北者にスポットを当てた。

文大統領は「親北」政治家として知られており、2007年の盧武鉉(ノ・ムヒョン)大統領の側近時代から、北朝鮮との融和政策に深く関わってきていたという。それだけに今後、韓国と北朝鮮との融和が進むことで、脱北者の居場所が危ぶまれるというのだ。

番組では、韓国に住む脱北者を取材した。脱北して20年だという女性たちは親北派の大統領就任について「韓国はとても危なくなる」「息子らの未来が心配だ」と、危機感を露わにする。

そして、選挙結果を見つめる女性たちは、文氏の当選確実が出ると絶句。そのうちのひとりの女性は、しばらく言葉を失った後、番組スタッフから「これからどうしますか?」という質問をされると、険しい表情で「亡命します」と漏らした。そして「日本が助けてくれないと」「私たちの亡命を助けてほしい」と訴えていた。
