Remembering Sewol UK


MV Sewol

BBC – Outlook | Voice of Father of One of Student-Victims

Gyounggeun Yoo, father of one of the Sewol disaster student-victims, was interviewed by Jo Fidgen of Outlook, BBC World Service at the Broadcasting House on 10 May. It was the first day of his visit to the UK as part of European tour.

Mr Yoo and Ms Yoon who also lost her daughter in the disaster visited many cities in Europe including Berlin, London, Rome and Paris, to highlight their struggle for truth. They want not only justice for the victims but proper safety laws and regulations to ensure that such a disaster could not happen again. They hope to learn from those affected by similar disasters and from campaign groups fighting injustices.

The interview is now available to listen at
(from around 13 mins 18 secs for 10 minutes).
