Kim Jong Un’s apology followed promptly, and a week later the background to the killing of a South Korean also seems clear: According to intelligence information from the south, the fisheries official wanted to overflow to the north – presumably for financial reasons. One week after the shooting of a South Korean ministerial official by North Korean soldiers near the sea border, South Korea’s coast guard came to the conclusion that the man wanted to move to the isolated neighboring country. This assessment was made through the analysis of intelligence information, the analysis of the ocean current on the day in question and other evidence, said a spokesman for the coast guard on South Korean TV. The officer was wearing a life jacket and holding onto a floating object when he was discovered in the water by North Korea. North Korea’s ruler Kim Jong Un had apologized for the incident off the coast in the Yellow Sea. According to North Korea’s portrayal, soldiers mistook the man for an intruder and shot him. His body could no longer be found.
Seoul Allegations North Korea Kills and Burns South Koreans
The man suddenly disappeared from his ship on Monday last week during an inspection trip. North Korea contradicted the statements of the South Korean military, according to which the man was first shot and then burned by the soldiers. The General Staff had accused North Korea of brutal behavior. South Korea’s Coast Guard considered it unlikely that the man accidentally went overboard or tried to kill himself. He knew the waters in the area in question at the sea border well. The man was in debt in South Korea, it was said. It is unclear whether these might have driven him to overflow. In front of journalists in Seoul, his older brother contradicted the assessment that the officer wanted to defeat. The brother assumed an accident on the ship.
