Portman: North Korea shows 'complete failure to recognize fundamental human rights'

Portman: North Korea shows 'complete failure to recognize fundamental human rights'”

Warmbier died Monday, just days after he returned to the U.S., and his funeral was held in his hometown in Ohio Thursday.

The Department of State says Ambassador Joseph Yun plans to attend with Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan, the No. 2 American diplomat.

A bipartisan bill in the House would ban USA tourist travel and penalize those who seek to arrange it. (Travel for other purposes - humanitarian assistance, for instance - would still be possible on a case-by-case basis.) Congress should pass it speedily.

"This college kid never should have been detained in the first place", said Mr Portman, who previously revealed he met secretly with North Korean officials in NY last December to press for Mr Warmbier's release.

Former NBA star Dennis Rodman burst into tears during an "Good Morning America" interview Friday, saying he doesn't understand why he's caught so much criticism over his most recent jaunt to North Korea.

Warmbier returned to the United States last week in a coma, only to die six days after his arrival.

Mourners turned out in droves to pay their final respects yesterday to Otto Warmbier, the U.S. student imprisoned for more than a year by North Korea and sent back home in a mysterious coma that proved fatal.

President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson are not expected to attend the funeral.

This tight-knit community near Cincinnati had spent almost a year and a half "holding our breaths, praying for a quick release, rallying around the Warmbiers as much as possible" amid a dearth of information about the college student's fate, said Cynthia Meis, director of college counseling, who joined the faculty of Wyoming High School in 2012.

Rob Portman called North Korea an global "pariah" in a Wednesday address to the United States Senate, echoing language used by the parents of deceased former North Korean detainee Otto Warmbier. He declined to give names or titles and said it was at "another location in NY".

U.S. doctors said Mr Warmbier had suffered a severe neurological injury from an unknown cause. The scene of his tearful confession in his sham trial is the last picture we have of Warmbier alive. Warmbier attended the school. He said North Korea's treatment of Warmbier demonstrated "a basic disregard for human rights, for human dignity".

Alex Vagonis spoke about him at a candlelight vigil Tuesday evening on the University of Virginia campus that was attended by other students and university faculty.

The Ohio hometown of the 22-year-old college student detained for almost a year and a half in North Korea before being sent home in a coma is making plans for his funeral. A rabbi officiated at the service, which was closed to news media. Warmbier's family objected to an autopsy, so the Hamilton County coroner's office conducted only an external examination of his body and is still trying to determine his cause of death.
