North Korea shows captive Canadian pastor confessing before congregation


7/29/2015 North Korea (Reuters)NK


North Korea released video footage on Monday of Canadian pastor, Hyeon Soo Lim, confessing before a Pyongyang church congregation that he had committed crimes against the state. North Korea is following the old socialist tradition of show trials in which an alleged perpetrator of a trumped-up charge is made to ‘confess’ his guilt of the crime in order to escape an otherwise horrendous outcome. He confessed to slandering the state, seeking to establish a religious state in NK and that he gave wrong impression that God and not the state provided for people’s needs.


  • Pray for the swift and safe release of Pastor Hyeon Soo Lim
  • Pray for the thousands of Christians imprisoned in North Korea labor camps
