Kang Yong-ju interview in Ohmynews

Ohmynews has an interview on Kang Yong-ju, the guy who was convicted of false charges of spying in 1985 and pardoned in 1999, and on whom I assisted in doing newspaper reports. Nothing new to my previous note on him. Only that it's said that he was given life sentence back then - he also talks that way (ch'ôûm kamoge tûrôgassûl ttae chugûl ttaekkaji naoji mot hal kôsûro saengkakhaetta), but I remember him serving a long sentence, not life. (Perhaps it was reduced later from life to a definite sentence.)

At the present state of the legal system, he will be a target of security surveillance for the rest of his life. He has gone through almost the whole ROK legal system of appeals, and will turn to the UN Human Rights Comission after that road has been taken.
