[LETTERS to the editor]Wrong example

Ser Myo-ja’s May 9 front page article, “American pedophiles banned by authorities,” should raise concerns among Americans, fact-checkers, and anyone else at all concerned with the truth. Ser Myo-ja reports on the Ministry of Justice’s ban on convicted American pedophiles from entering Korea.
Ser Myo-ja goes on to mention Christopher Paul Neil [who was arrested in Thailand as a suspected pedophile who preyed on young Asian victims] as if he were American. He’s not. He’s Canadian. Why wouldn’t the article mention that?
The Ministry’s ban doesn’t affect Canadians.
You should get your facts straight lest you add to the miseducation of Korean citizens, poisoning the minds of a society already tainted by isolationist ignorance and prejudgment.
Your misleading article poorly informs Koreans.
