The South Korean Embassy in Washington disavowed a reported statement by Choi Chang Yoon, an aide to South Korean President Chun Doo Hwan, that exiled opposition leader Kim Dae Jung will be imprisoned upon his return to South Korea from the United States next month. However, embassy spokesman Park Shanil declined to say whether Kim will be imprisoned, asserting, "You will know when he returns." Kim was allowed to come to the United States for medical treatment in December, 1982, after serving 2 1/2 years of a 20-year sentence for sedition.
