Execute our dad please

In South Korea more than 147,000 signatures have been added to a petition from three daughters, calling on the authorities to execute their father, who – they allege – had given their mother more than 20 years of physical abuse.

“Even after their divorce, our father came to our home with a knife. Whenever that happened, we had to move,” said one of the daughters.

South Korea has the death penalty but hasn’t executed anyone since 1997.
