Republic of Korea (South Korea): Letters from prisoners and their families
AI groups around the world campaign on behalf of political prisoners in South Korea. Most of these political prisoners are being held under national security legislation. Many are held for the non-violent exercise of their rights to freedom of expression and association and are prisoners of conscience. This document contains excerpts from some to the letters AI members have received from prisoners in South Korea and from their families in 1994. They show the immense support and hope that prisoners and their families derive from correspondence with AI members and give information about conditions in which prisoners in South Korea are held.
