Republic of Korea (South Korea): Medical concern: Eun Su-mi
AI is seeking the release of Eun Su-mi, a prisoner of conscience aged 31 with serious health problems. Eun Su-mi is serving a five-year sentence for membership of an "anti-state" organization (Sanomaeng - Socialist Workers' League). She recently underwent major surgery for bowel tumors, after which the surgeon recommended her transfer to a fully-equipped hospital for further investigation, including investigation of a lung lesion. Instead, she was returned to prison. Attempts to readmit her to hospital have met with administrative difficulty and delay.
