You are invited to a special discussion at the National Assembly of South Korea this Valentine’s Day to discuss abductions by North Koreans agents.
December 11, 1969, a South Korean airplane was hijacked to North Korea by a North Korean agent. On Valentine’s Day in 1970, North Korea returned 39 of the passengers, but kept 11.
A forum will be held on Valentine’s Day this year to hold a discussion about the 50th anniversary of the hijacking, about hostages such as journalist Hwang Won (his son, one of the speakers at the discussion, has continued a campaign for more than 15 years to have his father returned), and about other victims of abduction by North Korea.
