Anyone interested in conversation about the right to freedom of opinion and expression might want to check out a talk by Frank La Rue, the UN Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression.
The event is Monday, May 17th at 10:30am on the 19th floor of the Korea Press Center Building, Taepyongno-1Ga, Jung-Gu, Seoul.
Mr. La Rue’s visit is part of a “fact-finding mission,” according to a May 3rd press release—provided by Mr. Wagner—by the UN Office of the High Commission for Human Rights.
This is particularly timely if you have been following the Samsung versus Michael Breen imbroglio.
The last time Korea had a UN Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion in town was 15 years ago… This may be an ideal opportunity to address some important issues.
Check it out if you have the time.
