The South Korean-born pastor had been accused of subversive acts against Pyongyang, an allegation Canadian authorities strongly denied. "We need to find ways to pressure and persuade North Korea that the path that it is on. can have no positive ending".
Family spokeswoman Lisa Pak said in a statement Thursday that "there is a long way to go" in terms of Lim's healing and said he needs privacy while receiving unspecified medical attention.
It is thanks to the diplomatic efforts of the federal government and the Sweden he was released. "One of the things my father shared is that as a Canadian going to North Korea for him was to be able to share the blessing of Canada to those in North Korea", the pastor's son said. "There's a lot of complexity to it", James Lim said.
"Now more than ever, he's never felt more Canadian", the son said.
