VLADIVOSTOK, October 25. /TASS/. Investigators have opened two more criminal cases over the attack of North Korean fishermen at Russian border guards, the press service of the Investigative Committee’s (IC) Far Eastern investigative department of transport said on Tuesday.
Two criminal cases were opened earlier over use of violence toward an authority. "As of now, investigators have opened two more criminal cases over similar crimes, as it was established that two other officers of the Russian Border Control Service in the Primorsky Krai were injured by the use of violence by North Korean citizens," the department said.
On October 14, Russian border guards stopped a North Korean ship with 48 people onboard in the exclusive economic zone in the Sea of Japan. When inspecting the vessel, Russian border guards were subjected to the use of violence by North Korean citizens. The ship tried to sail away, which forced Russian border guards to open fire. Nine North Korean fishermen were injured, and one of them later died.
The detained ship is currently in the Russian port city of Nakhodka.
