North Korea Denies Torturing Detained US Student Otto Warmbier

North Korea Denies Torturing Detained US Student Otto Warmbier”

The US doctors had also said that Warmbier's severe brain injury was most likely - given his young age - to have been caused by cardiopulmonary arrest cutting the blood supply to the brain. Warmbier was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor in March 2016 after he was found guilty of allegedly stealing a propaganda poster from a hotel.

About 2,500 mourners lined up early on Thursday morning at Wyoming High School, in the Cincinnati suburb of Wyoming. President Trump condemned the North's "brutality", and other political leaders demanded that it explain what happened to Mr. Warmbier. He recalled that the USA citizen, who had admitted his guilt, was sentenced by the court to hard labor "for subversive activities against North Korea". KCNA said the North dealt with him according to its domestic laws and worldwide standards. He was brought back to the U.S. last week with brain damage, in what doctors described as state of "unresponsive wakefulness", and died on Monday.

Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, the Republican chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, said the US should think about banning USA citizens from visiting North Korea. It said that the public opinion Warmbier had died due to beating and torture was "groundless".

The North Korean spokesman quoted by Reuters suggested the student had returned to the usa "in his normal state of health".

"To make it clear, we are the biggest victim of this incident and there would be no more foolish judgment than to think we do not know how to calculate gains and losses", the statement showed.

Fred Warmbier, Otto's father, has blamed North Korea for his son's fate.

"The campaign of criticism against the DPRK that is being waged in the United States is reinforcing our resolution not to use humanitarianism or generosity toward our enemies and to further sharpen the blade of the law".

The spokesman also said Mr. Warmbier was "a victim of the policy of strategic patience", referring to President Barack Obama's policy of focusing on sanctions and applying pressure on the North.

The attendees included Ambassador Joseph Yun, the US special envoy who travelled to Pyongyang to bring Mr Warmbier back, and US Senator Rob Portman, a Republican from the nearby Cincinnati area.

The bill, introduced late last month by Representatives Adam Schiff, a California Democrat, and Joe Wilson, a South Carolina Republican, would ban tourist travel to North Korea and require a license from the Treasury Department for any other travel to North Korea. A spokesman for the family said this week that they chose not to disclose his Judaism during negotiations for his release so as not to antagonize North Korea.

North Korea issued a statement last July threatening to shut down its NY channel of communication with the United States, while refusing to talk with diplomats about the detainees.

He was released earlier this month in what North Korea described as a "humanitarian gesture".
