    Even though South Korea ended its dictatorship in the late 1980s, its anti-communist National Security Act of 1948 continues to oppress a range of political freedoms. The broadly-written act is still used to jail anyone suspected of North Korean sympathies, as even owning a book published in North Korea is a crime. Despite the objections from a majority of South Koreans and human rights groups, the act has been repeatedly strengthened in recent years.
