Statement from Ambassador Lee Wolosky on arrests of US Nationals

The following statement was issued today by Ambassador Lee Wolosky on behalf of PGFJ:

“We are dismayed that the US Department of Justice has decided to execute warrants against US persons that derive from criminal complaints filed by the North Korean regime. The last US citizen who fell into the custody of the Kim regime returned home maimed from torture and did not survive. We have received no assurances from the US government about the safety and security of the US nationals it is now targeting.”
