Abduction issue minister indicates possibility of filing case against Kim Jong Un at the ICJ

Minister Katsunobu Kato, who is in charge of the abduction issue, attended an international symposium on the abduction issue in Tokyo on Dec. 10. He indicated that the government will consider the possibility of filing a case at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) against North Korea’s Chairman Kim Jong Un for violation of human rights as a way to put pressure on the DPRK to resolve the abduction issue. This is meant to strengthen pressure on North Korea in order to break the deadlock in the abduction issue.
