Background on Robert Park, North Korean activist, being released from California hospital

After losing his first hearing at Community Hospital of Long Beach on March 3, Robert Park appealed to the Courts, in a case virtually no one thought he would be able to win.

Park was allegedly lied to, drugged, and taken by force to a mental hospital in Long Beach, California on February 27, 2010, classified as "gravely disabled" and a danger to himself by family and friends.

But on March 5, a Superior Court judge decided in his favor after hearing Park's testimony. Park was released from the mental hospital a few hours later, and is now vindicated to continue as part of the North Korean Human Rights Movement.
