North Korea finally frees Ontario pastor Hyeon Soo Lim

The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement this August 10th on the release of Pastor Lim:

“Today, I am pleased and relieved to confirm that Pastor Lim has been released from jail in North Korea and that he will soon be reunited with his family and friends in Canada.

“The Government of Canada was actively engaged on Mr. Lim’s case at all levels. In particular, I want to thank Sweden, our protecting power in North Korea, for assisting us.

“This week, a Canadian government delegation led by Daniel Jean, my Special Envoy, traveled to Pyongyang, North Korea, to discuss Pastor Lim’s case.

“Pastor Lim’s health and well-being remain of utmost importance to the Government of Canada, and we are working to ensure that he receives any required medical attention.

“Operational security considerations prevent us from discussing the matter further.

“I ask that the family’s wish for privacy be respected.”

  1. As usual it is neutral countries LIKE Sweden that step forward at a time of political unrest and belligerance to quell the hostilities and bring a sense of trust to the fore. I remember when Canada held that distinction and was called an “HONEST BROKER”. A shame we have lost our way.
