North Korea massacre: Fishermen kill 16 crewmates before fleeing Kim’s hermit kingdom

South Korean Defense Minister Jeong Kyeong-doo answers a lawmaker's question about two North Koreans' deportation during a defense committee meeting at the National Assembly in Seoul South Korea on Nov. 7 2019 North Korea massacre: Fishermen kill 16 crewmates before fleeing Kim’s hermit kingdom

According to the Ministry, this is the first time South Korea has deported any North Korean national.

North Korean defector recalls starvation before escaping to the U.S.

During the meeting, the ministers will discuss various security issues, including security situations on the Korean Peninsula, the conditions-based transfer of the wartime operational control of South Korean troops from Washington to Seoul, future security cooperation, and the relocation and return of US military bases in South Korea. But South Korean law also allows authorities wide latitude to reject incoming North Korean individuals, for instance, on national security grounds.

South Korea decided in August to scrap the military accord in response to Japan's export curbs.

A senior North Korean official said on Wednesday that the announcement was equivalent to a "declaration for confrontation" that could jeopardize the diplomatic process, AFP reports. It sends a signal to other North Korean escapees that South Korea no longer welcomes them.

"The young men told investigators they chose to kill the other 15 crewmembers as well because they feared they would be punished for the murder if any witnesses were left alive", reported South Korea's Chosun Ilbo. "For more than 20 years, the South Korean government and the people of South Korea, the taxpayers of South Korea, have extended help and naturalization programs to about 33,000 North Koreans", said Greg Scarlatoiu, executive director of the Committee for Human Rights in North Korea (HRNK).

American lawyer Joshua Stanton said South Korea violated a United Nations convention banning the expulsion of people to a place where there are "substantial grounds" for believing they may face torture.

The Ministry said that the three went back to Kimchaek port with the intention of moving to another region of North Korea. After two days, the two were captured by the South Korean navy on November 2.

"We respect the South Korean investigation, but the Convention Against Torture says if the criminal or suspect is expected to be tortured or threatened, then the government should not repatriate", Kim said.

He maintained that the men should be deemed innocent until proven guilty. "South Korea has now implicitly recognized that that is a legitimate justice system and it is not".

In recent years, the number of North Koreans coming to the South has slowed. Scenarios included verifying the main targets in North Korea should a war break out.

"It doesn't make sense at all".
