Lisa Ling’s Sister – Sentenced to 12 Years In Korean Work Prison


According to the news, Two journalists, Euna Lee and Laura Ling, sister of former “The view” host Lisa Ling, has been sentenced to jail in  a Korean labor prison for 12 years.

North Korean authorities alleged that the women illegally crossed into their country last March.  A trial was held for the two women by the Central Court, the highest court in North Korea.  The trial lasted from Thursday to Monday and they were found guilty of  “committing hostilities against the Korean nation and illegal entry”. 

According to the New York Times the two women, Ling and Lee, were on a news assignment for former Vice President Al Gore’s media company when they arrest happened. 

The two journalists were reporting on women and children refugees within North Korea. 

This is all of the information that I have heard on this..  I sincerely hope that our government is getting involved and not turning a blind eye because of the other situations that they are having to deal with in Korea at the present time.  My Heart goes out to Lisa Ling and her family.
