Trial of Agent of S. Korean IS Held
| Pyongyang, May 30 (KCNA) -- The DPRK Supreme Court Friday held a trial of Kim Jong Uk, agent of the puppet Intelligence Service (IS), who was unmasked and arrested while infiltrating into Pyongyang to commit hostile acts against the DPRK after crossing the border illegally.
Present there were people of various circles as observers.
First of all, the trial examined the charges of state subversion, espionage and anti-state propaganda and agitation and illegal entry into the border brought against the accused Kim, the crimes which come under Articles 60, 64, 62 and 221 of the DPRK Criminal Law and presented an indictment on confirming the above-said crimes.
In the course of examination, the accused admitted to all his crimes: he committed anti-DPRK religious acts, malignantly hurting the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK overseas and tried to infiltrate into Pyongyang after illegally trespassing on the border for the purpose of setting up underground church and gathering information about the internal affairs of the DPRK while luring its inhabitants into south Korea and spying on the DPRK.
Then the trial heard testimonies made by witnesses.
An expert produced evidence such as religious books, memory cards, sex CDs and spying devices carried by the accused for criminal purposes.
The prosecutor addressed the court.
He said that the accused must face a stern punishment he deserves, according to a DPRK law, because his crimes were grave infringements upon the security of the dignified socialist system of the DPRK and its state and the frontier order of the DPRK, and proposed the court to pass a death sentence on the accused.
The defense counsel said that the consequences of his crimes are very serious, but he sincerely repented of his crimes and apologized for them and requested the court to commute the death sentence demanded by the prosecutor to other form of punishment, taking into consideration the possibility of him more keenly repenting himself of his ridiculous and wrong deeds, seeing for himself the day when a prosperous thriving socialist nation will appear and the fact that he helped physically ailing inhabitants from the north in the past and he is a member of the same nation.
A decision was read out at the trial.
Kim Jong Uk, the accused, was sentenced to life hard labor.
His crimes were a product of the confrontation with fellow countrymen pursued by the puppet group of traitors backed by foreign forces, a clear indication that whoever supports it is bound to go against the ardent desire of the Korean nation for putting an end to the outside interference and building a reunified and prosperous country in the idea of By Korean nation itself and certainly face a final judgment by history.
