Bringing the free press to North Korea

Defector turned newspaper proprietor plans infiltration in his home country

Kim Joo Il claims he is the first North Korean defector to have raised human rights issues directly to a member of the country’s leadership.

In 2011, Kim met Korean Workers Party politburo member and chairman of the Supreme People’s Assembly Choe Thae Bok by arrangement of the British government.
