SEOUL, October 22. /TASS/. South Korea called on North Korea on Wednesday to free a South Korean Baptist missionary, Kim Jung-wook, who has been sentenced to hard labor for life, Unification Ministry spokesman Lim Byeong-cheol said.
"Our government once again calls on (North Korea) to free the missionary and repatriate him," the spokesman was quoted by the Yonhap news agency as saying at a press briefing.
The 50-year-old missionary was arrested by the North's authorities in October last year on charges of spying and setting up underground churches.
The North unexpectedly released on Tuesday Jeffrey Fowle, one of three Americans held for “unacceptable behavior.”
Two other Americans, Kenneth Bae and Matthew Todd Miller, who arrived in North Korea on tourist visas, are still being held in the country for alleged "hostile activity."
