[19659004] A Spanish judge last month said Hong was the leader of a group of ten men who performed the Embassy Law, as described in court documents as a violent meeting.

According to Spanish court documents, Hong and other members of Cheollima Civil Defense and handcuffed ambassadors struck before taking a senior official in a basement room and urging him to fail from North Korea, the members of the dissident group fled from the association of ambassadors lets with two drivers, two computers and two hard disks, the court documents say.

Cheollima Civil Defense, whose stated goal is to overthrow the Kimregime, has confirmed that it was behind the raid but denied it gagged or hit any of the embassy employees. They say they were invited to the embassy. Wolosky acknowledges his client’s involvement in the raid and said the group was not violent.

Wolosky described the group that he now wants to be called “Free Joseon” Provisional Government “as a” magnet for defectors, which contacts them in various ways around the world. “

Cheollima Civil Defense said in a statement last month that it shared” some information about huge potential value with the FBI in the United States, according to mutually agreed privacy rules. “The FBI referred CNN to the Justice Department for comment.

Ahn is in jail in Los Angeles before a second hearing in federal court there on Tuesday afternoon, it is not clear what he is guilty of because his case remains in seal, but an online scheduling page for the case lists it as related to a extradition.

 North Korea looking for probe in

A public defender listed for Ahn has not responded to a request for comment.

Ahn is a former sea and previously worked with Cheollima Civil Defense when it helped move son of Kim Jong’s half brother to a safe place after Kim allegedly ordered the half-brother’s murder for two years ago, according Wolosky.

“He is an American hero,” said Wolosky. “He deserves much better treatment than is currently provided to him by the US government, which inhibits him in federal detention in Los Angeles.”

Wolosky said the US authorities have given him “no assurances” about where to send Ahn and called it “outrageous” that the US government seemed to act based on criminal charges arising from North Korea.

The Department of Justice would not comment on Ahn’s or Hong’s case but a Friday spokesman noted that the United States would generally have to authorize a country requesting extradition of an individual to send that person to a third country.

“We ask the President and the Secretary of State, who have a direct role in the extradition process, to stop this and to stop it immediately. Let these men go back to serving their country, the United States and working towards a free and democratic North Korea as they have done. Let them go back to their families and let them go back to their service, “Wolosky said.
