I heard on NPR yestereday that the female President of South Korea was impeached. The Higher Court upheld a decision made by a lower court in South Korea to impeach her immediately. She was the first female president of South Korea and also the first President to be impeached. She is the grand daughter of a former South Korean president who apparently helped out the economy there quite a bit (in the 60's and 70's) but toward the end of his presidency because more of a dictator. I thought it was interesting to note that she was also a General in the Military before becoming President, which might be why our brothers our being imprisoned for refusing military duty and not offered civilian duty instead. They have to hold a new election in 60 days for a new President - let's pray to Jehovah that the new President will change the laws so that our young, faithful brothers and their families no longer have to suffer these unjust prison sentences. All I could think of when I heard this story was how we've been told in our publications that during trials or bans/persecution, sometimes Jehovah's allows it to run it's course and other times he will simply remove the official in authority that is impeding his will!!! Perhaps in this case, it is the later! I guess we will have to wait and see.
