2018 Oslo Freedom Forum
May 29, 2018
In a conversation with OFF founder Thor Halvorssen, Fred Warmbier discusses the North Korean government's unjustified imprisonment and torture of his son, Otto Warmbier, which ultimately resulted in his death. Warmbier uses his son's case to shed light on the international community's dismissal of human rights in North Korea, and denounces the regime's propaganda that distorted the narrative of events leading up to Otto's death to benefit the state. Warmbier and his family are seeking justice for Otto by holding the North Korean government accountable for its outrageous actions.
