Damage suit against N.K. leader

Former South Korean prisoner of war (front row, 2nd from L), only identified by his family name Han, holds a news conference at the Seoul Central District Court in Seoul on July 7, 2020, after winning a damage suit against North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Han and another POW, just known as Noh, who were taken to North Korea during the 1950-53 Korean War and defected to South Korea in 2000, filed the suit in October 2016, citing their forced labor in the North. The court ordered North Korean leader Kim to pay 21 million won (US$17,565) in compensation to each. (Yonhap)
