The North Korean government (DPRK) has imprisoned yet another person who is guilty of nothing more than practicing a faith besides the worship of their Supreme Leader, Kim Jong Un.

On December 16, 2015, Reverend Hyeon Soo Lim was given a sentence of life imprisonment with hard labor for trumped up charges of harming the dignity of the supreme leader, trying to use religion to destroy the North Korean system, and helping US and South Korean authorities abduct North Korean citizens.

Even though Reverend Lim appeared to admit to the charges brought against him in a state propaganda video issued by North Korea, there is strong evidence that he was coerced into doing so.

Many former North Korean prisoners who have been captured and tortured by the government report being forced into making similar statements and confessing guilt to crimes they did not commit.
We ask you to join us in petitioning the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea for the immediate and unconditional release of Hyeon Soo Lim. Sign and share the petition

The DPRK claims that Reverend Lim used his visits to provide humanitarian aid as cover for his secret plans to undermine the social system and overthrow the North Korean government. There is no evidence of this and he had completed over 100 of these trips without incidence.

North Korea has a horrific track record of imprisoning Christians like Reverend Lim for no more reason than a hatred of Christianity and a fear that it will undermine their iron grip on their people.

Testimony given by Reverend Lim’s family and church community in Canada to news outlets make it clear that Reverend Lim was motivated by nothing more than his desire to bring help, relief, and care to the people of North Korea. Moreover, Reverend Lim’s advanced age and fragile health make his continued stay in prison very dangerous.
