Recipient of Gwangju Prize for Human Rights

Catholic priest Moon Kyu-hyun, chief of the screening committee for the Gwangju Prize for Human Rights, speaks during a press conference in the southwestern city of Gwangju on March 20, 2020, to name Indonesia's Bedjo Untung, founder of the 1965 Murder Victims Research Foundation, the 2020 winner of the prize. The award commemorates the 1980 pro-democracy uprising in Gwangju, in which hundreds of citizens were killed during their protests against the military junta of Chun Doo-hwan. The Indonesian foundation represents victims of the mass killings of alleged communists in the mid-1960s. (Yonhap)
