South Korea: National Security Law used to silence singing troupe
Five members of the singing troupe Heemangsae are currently on trial under National Security law. Three of them, Kim Tae-il, Cho Jae-hyun and Lee Chang-ryol were arrested on 22 February 1994; the other two, Lee Yoon-jun and Lee Sang-yeop, were arrested on 24 March during a peaceful demonstration to protest the arrest of their colleagues. AI believes that they are prisoners of conscience; the organization is also concerned about reports that some of the prisoners were ill-treated during interrogation.
