The us government banned its citizens to cross the border of North Korea.
The Secretary of state of the United States Rex Tillerson has approved restrictions for US citizens to travel to North Korea due to the serious risk of arrest. About this informed the press-Secretary of the U.S. Department of State Heather Nauert.
“In fact, United States passports are invalid for travel to/via North Korea, and citizens will need to obtain a passport with special permission to travel to North Korea or inside it,” said Neuert.
Also, the press Secretary noted that the U.S. government took this step because of the serious risk of arrest of American citizens after an American student was arrested in North Korea, and then died.
“This step was caused by the growing risk about serious risk of arrest and long term detention under the law enforcement of North Korea,” said Neuert.
We will remind, last year a North Korean court sentenced Warmbir, arrived in the DPRK on the new year holidays, to 15 years in prison for attempting to steal a propaganda poster from the hotel. After 15 months in jail – 13 June – American student into a coma has returned home.
As stated by the North Korean authorities, they freed the prisoner “from humanitarian reasons”. Warmer by this time presumably for a long time was in a coma. He died at his home in Cincinnati, Ohio, June 19.
Warmbir family refused autopsy. According to the coroner, was conducted only an external examination of the body. The statement said that “at the moment there have been no conclusions about the cause of death of Otto Warmbier”.
Parents Warmbir said that the young man suffered “a terrible painful treatment”.
North Korea claims that Warmbir contracted botulism, a rare illness that causes paralysis soon after the trials in March 2016. He was given sleeping pills, and since then he never left the coma. However, the team of doctors who had treated Otto in Cincinnati, said that the young man showed no signs of botulism.
In their opinion he suffered from “severe neurological injury” of unknown origin. This injury led to extensive loss of brain tissue. Warmbir could open his eyes, but on what does not react.
After the death of Otto Warmbier US President Donald trump said that the North Korean regime is extremely cruel.
