Statement by Catherine Baber,
Asia-Pacific Deputy Programme Director, Amnesty International

 

“Amnesty International is deeply concerned about the Seoul Central Prosecutor’s Office’s decision on Wednesday to investigate the People’s Solidarity for Participatory Democracy (PSPD) for sending a letter to the UN Security Council questioning the results of the international investigation into the sinking of the South Korean navy vessel the Cheonan.  The civic group is accused of “benefiting” North Korea, in violation of the National Security Law, interfering with state’s act and defamation. 
 
“Following on from the case against political activities by state school teachers, this investigation appears part of a pattern of excessive action targeting government critics.

“Amnesty International is also concerned that the National Security Law continues to be used to arbitrarily target individuals or groups peacefully exercising their basic rights to freedom of expression and association.  Simply put, this law is used as a tool to silence dissent.
 
“Amnesty International appreciates that South Korea has security concerns with regard to North Korea. However, security concerns should never be used to deny people or groups the right to exercise their human rights, in particular the right to peacefully express political views.”
