42 years since Megumi Yokota's abduction Family appealed on 55th birthday October 5th 17:45

Megumi Yokota, who was kidnapped by North Korea, celebrated her 55th birthday on the 5th without returning home. Megumi's family gave a lecture in Kawasaki City and appealed to North Korea Chairman Kim, "I want you to make a decision to bring the victim home."

Megumi Yokota was abducted by North Korea on his way home from Niigata City in November 1977 when he was 13 years old.

Megumi-san celebrated his 55th birthday on the 5th, and his brother Takuya Yokota attended the rally held in Kawasaki City.

Takuya said, “My sister loved cheerfulness and was a cheerful person like a sunflower for me as a younger brother. When I thought that 13-year-old girl was kidnapped and pushed down to the bottom of fear, I felt unforgivable. It ’s full. ”

After mentioning that it will be 42 years since the abduction next month, "The reality is that the victim's family is in their 80s and 90s and is forced to struggle with time." “If our sister and other victims are able to return home, we will not interfere with North Korea ’s disadvantageous activities and negotiations between Japan and Korea. I want to ask the chairman, and I want to keep an eye on the Japanese government so as not to lower the hurdles of resolving all victims' return. ”
