U.N. Expert Criticizes South Korea on Human Rights

13:53 Jun 10 2013 South Korea

A top United Nations expert slammed South Korea for cracking down on human-rights workers, arguing that the country’s laws enable unwarranted prosecution of activists, a charge the government rejected.

Margaret Sekaggya, the U.N. special rapporteur on the situation of human rights defenders, concluded a 10-day visit to South Korea on Friday by offering some harsh criticism for the country’s treatment of activists, who she said are subjected to harassment, physical violence, intimidation and unlawful surveillance due to their criticism of government policies.

Ms. Sekaggya said that South Korea doesn’t meet international standards in several areas, including the freedoms of expression, peaceful assembly and association and labor rights, even though the country’s constitution guarantees them.
