Life Story & Timeline

2017

In August 2017, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sent a Canadian international government delegation to Pyongyang to discuss the case. Lim was released from detention on August 9, 2017, and arrived in Canada on August 12, 2017.

He was released on August 9, 2017, after a Canadian delegation visited Pyongyang and arrived back in Canada on August 12, 2017.

2015

Lim traveled to North Korea on January 31, 2015, crossing the land border with China to visit the northeastern city of Rajin but he disappeared. Much later it was determined he was arrested in February. In a video released by a North Korean propaganda website in August, Hyeon appeared to read from a script to a nearly empty state-operated Pongsu Church in Pyongyang. “The worst crime I committed was to rashly defame and insult the highest dignity and the system of the republic.” Former prisoners in North Korea report being coerced into similar confessions.

On December 16, 2015 Lim was sentenced to life imprisonment with hard labor for crimes against the state of North Korea.

2014

In a post-release interview, Lim attributed his arrest to a video clip of a speech he made at a Christian conference in the United States—where he stated that North Koreans should “believe in God instead of Kim Il-sung and Jesus instead of Kim Jong-Il”—which was posted on the internet without his permission and noticed by North Korean authorities. [1]

2013

Working with government officials is unavoidable in a state where everything is under government control, but working with the North Korean government increases risk. Lim focused his efforts around Rajin, near the Rason Special Economic Zone which is an important North Korean effort to gain foreign investment. The Rason zone was led by Jang Song-thaek an uncle of North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un and a powerful political elite until Kim Jong-un had him executed in December 2013. Agence France-Presse first reported a link with Jang’s circle, and Lim’s cooperation with North Korean officials who had ties to Mr. Jang could have been a problem according to experts on the DPRK. Any links between Lim and political elites were denied by spokespersons from Lim’s church.

2001

Because of the sensitivity of the situation and privacy rules the Canadian Foreign Affairs office has said little about Lim’s situation. North Korea and Canada do not have regular diplomatic relations, with Canada using the Swedish embassy in Pyongyang, which the Globe and Mail reported is staffed by a single person. Diplomatic contact between Canada and North Korea is also made via United Nations representatives. In recent years, Liberal Prime Minister Jean Chrétien established diplomatic ties with the DPRK in 2001 but Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper suspended most contact with North Korea in 2010, and then imposed strict trade and travel sanctions. Canadian officials were using back channels and meeting on the edge of world conferences to press for Lim’s release. The election of a Liberal Party of Canada government was seen by his family as an opportunity for a breakthrough.

1997

Lim has done humanitarian work in a variety of countries, but he has traveled to North Korea over 100 times since 1997. These humanitarian missions have included support for a nursing home, a nursery, an orphanage, and much more. While his church blocked efforts to talk to people working with Lim for his safety, The Globe and Mail found evidence of extensive efforts to start businesses, import and export food, glasses, fuel, and other goods, feed thousands of people, and even buy the largest hotel in North Korea. The for-profit business interests, in the magnitude of tens of millions of dollars, were used to fund humanitarian efforts. Lim maintained high-level contacts in North Korea and Canada, including with the Prime Minister’s office. He cooperated with people around the world including the US, New Zealand, China and other places.

1996

In 1996, during the North Korean four-year famine that killed an estimated 500,000 to 600,000 people, Lim took an interest in helping North Koreans and used his church as a support base.

1986

Lim moved to Canada in January 1986, “as part of a missionary group.” In Toronto, Lim studied theology at Knox College, a seminary of the Presbyterian Church in Canada. He became a Canadian citizen.

Lim joined or founded and became the senior pastor of the Light Korean Presbyterian Church in Mississauga, (Greater Toronto Area) Ontario. Under his leadership the congregation grew from a dozen people in 1986 to more than 3,000 members in 2015. It operates from a complex that includes a 1,773-seat sanctuary, an education wing of numerous classrooms, a 5,260-square-foot fellowship hall with a full commercial kitchen, a 6,650-square-foot gymnasium and a 248-seat chapel. He also runs a second young person-oriented church in downtown Toronto.
