On July 13, 2022, South Korea’s Unification Ministry released photographs of two North Korean fishermen being dragged across the border from South to North Korea. At the time of the 2019 deportation, the government of then-president Moon Jae-in called the fishermen “dangerous criminals”, who had killed 16 fellow shipmates in a fight over an abusive captain before the ship crossed the sea border. The current South Korean president has revisited repatriation cases in a recent show of support to defectors. The UN has also said South Korea likely violated the men’s rights.
