South Korea: Prisoner of conscience Chang Ki-pyo
Chang Ki-pyo, 46-year-old Chairman of Minsahyop (Council for Democratic Reform and Social Progress), was arrested on 26 September 1992 with his wife Cho Mu-ha, Secretary General of Minkahyop (Council of Families for the Realization of Democracy). He was charged under the National Security Law with meeting a North Korean agent, Lee Son-sil, and with failure to report his meetings to the authorities. He is now serving a one-year prison sentence. AI has adopted him as a prisoner of conscience and is calling for his immediate and unconditional release. He was previously adopted in 1977 when he was sentenced to three years' imprisonment for "anti-state" activities. In December 1992 Cho Mu-ha was freed on bail and was given a suspended prison sentence at her trial in January 1993.
