Korean unionists jail sentences reduced

Following a court appeal, Mr. Han Sang-kyun, the former Chairman of the Ssangyong Motor Company Union (KMWU), has had his prison sentence reduced from 4 years to 3 years.
In the same court case, 21 other trade unionists were freed but with severe restrictions on future union activities.
Mr Kwon Sun-man, a KMWU vice president, will be released in October while Mr. Kim Hyuk, a KMWU executive member, is still serving a 3 year sentence.
The campaign to free them continues
