North Korea releases imprisoned Canadian pastor, state media says

North Korea has released a Canadian pastor who was serving a life sentence of hard labour, the country’s official KCNA news agency said on Wednesday.

“Rim Hyon Su, a Canadian civilian, was released on sick bail according to the decision of the Central Court of the DPRK on August 9, 2017, from the humanitarian viewpoint,” it said, using the country’s official name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

    The corrupt media cartel will give credit for the pastor’s release to Obama, or perhaps Jimmy Carter.

    What I want to know, is what has comrade Trudeau promised North Korea in return for his release. We all know little Justin loves his commie countries.

      I think it is the Trump effect, not Justin’s.
