Arranged marriage in prison 
10th-Jul-2007 12:25 pm
Another article about North Korea: "Born and raised in a North Korean gulag" mentioning arranged marriages in North Korean prisons.

One who managed to escape says that he sometimes finds life "more burdensome than the hardest labor in the prison camp, where I only had to do what I was told." I think there is a similar phenomenon with people in the UBF camp. They are claiming that people who want to leave UBF are seeking an "easygoing life", but in reality, the life in UBF is much easier since, despite all the boring meetings, training, abuse etc., you "only need to do what you are told" which is in a way the most easygoing life style you can imagine.

Another frightening report from North Korea: Brother Pleads for Life of North Korean Facing Death for Faith. Son Jong Hoon, who is visiting the United States from his home in South Korea, today pleaded with the world to pressure North Korea to release his elder brother awaiting public execution for the crime of simply being a Christian. (When Sarah Barry was in North Korea, nobody noticed she was a Christian.)
