Statement by Provisional Government of Free Joseon on Today’s events at the DMZ

The Provisional Government of Free Joseon certainly seeks ultimate peace and believes in dialogue over conflict when it is held between partners in good faith. Millions starved to death, hundreds of thousands of citizens in concentration camps, and hundreds of foreigners kidnapped and assassinated will attest that, unfortunately, the regime in Pyongyang has never acted in good faith and only seeks to stall while it continues to proliferate weapons of mass destruction and commit mass atrocities. The regime has never stopped developing weapons of mass destruction even while engaging with the United States since 2018. Regretfully, these empty gestures by the Kim regime serve only to deceive the world and empower an immoral criminal regime. Change must come, for both our oppressed people and for a genuine peace.

Returning Home

One of our colleagues, who escaped North Korea as an orphan, recently wrote an OpEd for Fox News in the US:

Below is the video that shows the moment when he stepped into the North Korean embassy in Madrid and became overwhelmed with emotion when he realized that his dream of returning to his homeland had come true, if only in small part.

Join us in making his dream and that of so many others a reality: to be able to return to a North Korean homeland free of oppression and violence and full of possibility and dignity for all.

We call for Christopher Ahn to be freed and the pursuit of Adrian Hong to end!

In February of 2017, The Provisional Government of Free Joseon (formerly Cheollima Civil Defense) received an emergency request by Kim Han Sol immediately after the assassination of his father, Kim Jong Nam. The Provisional Government of Free Joseon successfully completed a mission to rescue Kim Han Sol, his mother, and his sister from immediate and critical danger to safety.

Adrian Hong led this mission and Christopher Ahn personally protected and escorted Kim Han Sol and his family. Adrian Hong and Christopher Ahn are true heroes who took great risks and have made many other personal sacrifices for many years to help and rescue those not blessed with freedom.

The Provisional Government of Free Joseon wishes to clarify that Kim Han Sol is not and never was a leader in our government. Kim Han Sol is a fine and good young man, but we do not believe in hereditary leadership based on bloodline. Anyone with good intentions is welcome as a member of the Provisional Government of Free Joseon.

Others named by the Spanish Judge, Jose de la Mata, have also participated in high stakes rescues of North Koreans across the world. The Provisional Government of Free Joseon and its members, including Adrian Hong and Christopher Ahn, have never received funding from foreign government agencies.

As of May 29, 2019, Christopher Ahn has been arrested and United States Marshals are actively pursuing Adrian Hong.

We call for the immediate release of Christopher Ahn and for the end to the pursuit of Adrian Hong. Their work on behalf of 25 million enslaved and silent North Korean citizens must continue with the resumption of their freedom!
