N. Korea Releases Canadian Pastor

North Korea has released a Canadian pastor who was imprisoned and serving a life sentence for allegedly attempting to overthrow the North Korean regime.

The North’s state-run Korean Central News Agency reported that Lim Hyeon-soo, a Canadian citizen, was released on sick bail on humanitarian grounds on Wednesday in line with the decision of the Central Court of the North.

Lim, a Korean Canadian pastor, was arrested by the North in 2015 and sentenced to life imprisonment with hard labor on charges of devising subversive plots against the North Korean regime.

His release comes as Daniel Jean, the national security advisor to the prime minister of Canada arrived in Pyongyang Tuesday with other officials.
