An American citizen has been taken into custody on suspicion of ‘hostile acts’ against the North Korean government, officials said Sunday.
‘A relevant institution of the DPRK detained American citizen Kim Hak Song on May 6 under a law of the DPRK on suspension of his hostile acts against it,’ the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said. DPRK is an acronym for North Korea’s official name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
‘A relevant institution is now conducting a detailed investigation into his crimes,’ the Agency added.
An employee of the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology, Kim is the fourth American citizen to be held by the North Korean regime, and the second to be detained in just two weeks.
Another U. S. citizen, Kim Sang Duk, also known as ‘Tony Kim,’ was arrested on Apr. 22 at Pyongyang Airport under suspicion of similar charges, ‘committing criminal acts of hostility’ against the regime.
