Hell hath no fury like a woman working for the South Korean Embassy in Bangkok, Thailand. South Korean female staff face allegations that they cussed out and screamed at innocent North Korean defectors who wanted to swear their new allegiances to Seoul not Pyongyang.
According to the Dong-A-Ilbo, “female staff at the South Korean Embassy in Bangkok are alleged to have used abusive language toward North Korean defectors. Thailand is a Southeast Asian country through which defectors seek refuge before entering South Korea.”
Several defectors disclosed that while investigating defectors detained in a facility operated by Thai immigration for illegal entry into the Southeast Asian nation, the staff earned notoriety for talking down and swearing at them.
As reported by the Dong-A-Ilbo, “ one 80-something escapee who was a high-ranking official in the North said he filed a petition with the South Korean ambassador in Bangkok in May last year. He said a female embassy staff member in her mid-20s told him, ‘Hey, dude, why are you here?’ He said Tuesday, however, that his petition was ignored.”
Another 50-something defector said, “female staff at the embassy have always talked down to and sworn at North Korean defectors. In May last year, a female worker shouted abuse at me in front of more than 100 other defectors, detained in the same room for disobeying her instructions.”
