We call for Christopher Ahn to be freed and the pursuit of Adrian Hong to end!

In February of 2017, The Provisional Government of Free Joseon (formerly Cheollima Civil Defense) received an emergency request by Kim Han Sol immediately after the assassination of his father, Kim Jong Nam. The Provisional Government of Free Joseon successfully completed a mission to rescue Kim Han Sol, his mother, and his sister from immediate and critical danger to safety.

Adrian Hong led this mission and Christopher Ahn personally protected and escorted Kim Han Sol and his family. Adrian Hong and Christopher Ahn are true heroes who took great risks and have made many other personal sacrifices for many years to help and rescue those not blessed with freedom.

The Provisional Government of Free Joseon wishes to clarify that Kim Han Sol is not and never was a leader in our government. Kim Han Sol is a fine and good young man, but we do not believe in hereditary leadership based on bloodline. Anyone with good intentions is welcome as a member of the Provisional Government of Free Joseon.

Others named by the Spanish Judge, Jose de la Mata, have also participated in high stakes rescues of North Koreans across the world. The Provisional Government of Free Joseon and its members, including Adrian Hong and Christopher Ahn, have never received funding from foreign government agencies.

As of May 29, 2019, Christopher Ahn has been arrested and United States Marshals are actively pursuing Adrian Hong.

We call for the immediate release of Christopher Ahn and for the end to the pursuit of Adrian Hong. Their work on behalf of 25 million enslaved and silent North Korean citizens must continue with the resumption of their freedom!
