Australia Shuts Its Doors to North Korean Refugees

Due to changing laws, North Korean refugees in Australia are being deported to South Korea. Because South Korea considers all of the citizens of North Korea as citizens of South Korea, Australia, too, accepts this position and will not be deporting the refugees who have settled in Australia back to the DPRK.

Still, some North Koreans are bitter, such as Song Dong Park, who fears DPRK agents will find her and kill her when she is sent to South Korea:

“We should kill ourselves. No one here cares about us or accepts us,” she says.
