North Korean prisoner freed

Not the most recent one (who we do not even know for sure exists), but instead the Christmas one. Despite what I wrote earlier, I feel very bad for the guy, as it sounds (to me) like he was tortured into saying things he didn't believe. North Korea published an interview with him in which he said that North Koreans had complete religious liberty, and I doubt he learned that through actual observation.

I'm very happy for his family that he's now free. I'm also extremely happy this was done without the kind of high-level negotiations that were needed last time.
