- China government
Chinese government called these refugees "are not refugees but illegal defectors, that ran away to China for simple economic reasons" and kept their policy of sending them back to North Korea.
International communities have been heavily criticizing China's policies, and Korean government as well as international communities have been requesting China to reconsider them as refugees and treat them in more humanitarian way.
North Korean defectors that get sent back to North Korea are put in political prisons under the crime of "enemy of the people", followed by forced labor, torture, and even public execution.
Fully knowing all these facts, China still sends them back to North Korea as illegal criminals.
It's not too late yet. We ask China to reconsider these North Koreans as refugees and treat them according to humanitarian principles.
Please... Save N. Korean defectors from being deported back to N.Korea....
