Public funeral planned for US student Otto Warmbier freed from North Korea


It is impossible to get reliable information about the welfare and treatment of foreigners detained in North Korea - Washington only learned of Otto Warmbier's condition in early June.

The statement also said that the medical record from an air ambulance service that brought Warmbier to OH and data from the University of Cincinnati Medical Centre, where he was hospitalised until his death, have been reviewed.

Lakshmi Sammarco's office has released a statement on Tuesday (20 June), saying that only an external test was performed on Warmbier as his family did not want a post-mortem examination.

"The bad torturous mistreatment our son received at the hands of North Koreans ensured that no other outcome was possible beyond the sad one we experienced today", Fred and Cindy Warmbier said in a statement.

Last week North Korea made a "humanitarian" gesture, releasing USA college student Otto Warmbier from custody, 17 months into his 15 year hard labor sentence for the crime of allegedly trying to steal a propaganda poster.

Otto Warmbier, 22, died at a hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio on Monday, a week after being released from North Korea in a coma. "I also urge North Korea to return these people to their families". They claimed that the young man had fallen into a coma after becoming infected and taking a sleeping pill. A few days after arriving back in the United States, he died.

Geng said China has played a "positive constructive" role regarding North Korea because it is a responsible member of the global community, and "not because of any pressure from other countries".

This assault on Otto Warmbier by the North Koreans when he was in their custody, that led to his death, has been called out by a number of my colleagues, both Republicans and Democrats here in the Senate today, as tantamount to murder of an American citizen.

Warmbier had planned to study in China in his third year of college and heard about Chinese travel companies offering trips to North Korea.

Warmbier was held captive for more than 17 months and returned to the United States a week ago.

Warmbier, a University of Virginia student, was accused of trying to steal a propaganda banner while visiting with a tour group and was convicted of subversion. "This is a regime that regularly kidnaps foreign citizens and keeps 120,000 North Koreans in barbaric gulags".

The U.S. and North Korea have no diplomatic relations.

One Trump administration official said bluntly they didn't know what the President was referencing when asked what the tweet meant.

"Obviously China can play, has played and can continue to play a greater role in helping to resolve this situation".

"President Trump also mentioned that under the right conditions, he is willing to engage in dialogue with North Korea", Moon said, adding neither the Obama administration nor Park Geun-hye made any effort to improve the relationship with Pyongyang.

"The President has spoken very clearly about how he and the first lady and our country feels about the loss of this American", Spicer said.
