According to a press release, the discussion will be held under the title: “Intolerance and discrimination against new religious movements: an international problem” in Korea.
The host organizations are: Human Rights Without Frontiers (HRWF) from Belgium and the Center for Studies on New Religions (CESNUR) from Italy.
“Every person has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to select or change one's religion or belief. However, even though the deprogramming has taken the lives of the victims since 2007 in Korea, the South Korean government or the President has not yet responded to this issue,” the press release asserted.
“In any country, human rights and freedom of religion must be observed. Your cooperation will undoubtedly protect very basic rights as human being and let the world know about the news,” the press release added.
