[LETTERS TO THE EDITOR]Address rights in NorthThe South Korean government and politicians should reconsider their plans to deal with the North Korean human rights problem. Alongside the U.S. North Korean Human Rights Act of 2004, the United States has announced the appointment of a North Korean human rights special envoy. Before Koreans regard this appointment as some political intrigue, they must be reminded that raising such a question steps away from the issue all the more at a time when South Korea has been procrastinating over the matter.
It is imperative that South Korea realizes the gravity of the human rights atrocities in the North and its possible consequences for the country in the near future.
