North Korean man indicted on spying charges...
The Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office has indicted a North Korean man on charges of disguising as a North Korean escapee to conduct espionage activities for the North.
The man, identified only by his surname Kim, entered South Korea last June after passing through Thailand under orders from the intelligence command of the North’s Korean People’s Army to carry out spying missions.
Prosecutors found that Kim used to work as a spy for the North’s military intelligence agency and then was sentenced to eight years and three months of hard labor for drug smuggling and human trafficking. While serving his sentence, Kim was released on bail and received an offer in April of last year to operate as a spy in the South.
