Letter from Mairead Maguire, Nobel Peace Laureate, to South Korean Ambassador Appealing Ban

Dear Ambassador,

I hope this finds you well. I write to request your help regarding my good friend Christine Ahn. Christine has just emailed me to say she has been denied entry to South Korea and was not allowed to board her plane in Shanghi yesterday in order to travel to South Korea.

Christine is a life long peacemaker and was the leader of a delegation of 30 international peace women (myself included) which visited Korea (both North and South) two years ago. On this occasion, Christine was travelling at the invitation of Korean women to attend peace meetings in South Korea on 27th June.

I would be very grateful if you could help regarding Christines visa clearance so she can attend these very important meetings in SK.
Should you require any further information please contact me and I will be delighted to speak with you.

I wish you every peace and happiness.

Mairead Maguire

Nobel Peace Laureate, Co founded Peace People, Northern Ireland.
