Fishermen from DPRK attacking border guards will go to jail

North Korean fishermen who attacked the coastal border guards will go to jail. This decision was made on the eve of the Nakhodka City Court. While six detainees were under arrest, in the future a measure of restraint is to be chosen for four more foreigners.

As the Interfax with reference to the court’s representative, the stay of fishermen from the DPRK in the Russian pre-trial detention center will last two months while the investigation will continue. A criminal case was opened on the grounds of the crime “Attempt on the life of a law enforcement officer”.

In September, coastal border guards caught several fishing schooners with DPRK flags behind illegal fishing of biological resources in the territory of the exclusive economic zone of the Russian Federation. The crew of one of the ships fiercely resisted the Russian security forces, one of the border guards received a gunshot wound.

Later from injuries died one of the North Korean fishermen, several others received medical assistance. According to representatives of the coastal border administration, such fierce resistance of foreigners is associated with the confiscation of the schooner, which threatened them under Russian laws. In the DPRK, all vessels are state-owned; seafarers face a penalty for the loss of property.
