The Chinese Ministry of State Security yesterday permitted detained human rights activist Kim Young Hwan his second consular meeting since he was arrested on March 29th, and the three men with whom he is being detained their first.
According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade in Seoul, a consular representative from the Republic of Korea Consulate-General in Shenyang spent approximately 25 minutes separately with each of the four men; Kim, Yoo Jae Kil (43), Kang Sin Sam (41) and Lee Sang Yong (31). They are being held in a Dandong detention center.
The consular official subsequently reported that the men all appear to be in good health. The Chinese authorities are reported to have also informed South Korean representatives in China that their investigation into the actions of the four men is in its final stages. However, the Ministry of State Security still has not made public the exact reason for the arrest of the four.
