ChinaAid urges the UNHCR, to approve as soon as possible, Tu's application for international refugee asylum status for him and his family because they meet the requirements for political refugee status. At the same time, ChinaAid calls on the international community, especially the Korean church, to come to the aid of Tu and his family, either by supporting his case or providing much-needed financial assistance.
To advocate for Tu and his family, contact the UNHCR via www.unhcr.org/pages/4a324fcc6.html.
To provide financial assistance, contact ChinaAid.
In 2009, ChinaAid reported on the 10-year sentence given to two Chinese Christians who had helped North Koreans escape. See the report here: www.chinaaid.org/2009/09/christian-sentenced-to-10-years-in.html
