PYONGYANG, June 30. /ITAR-TASS/. North Korea will pass to the court the cases of two US citizens that had arrived to Pyongyang on tourist visas.

KCNA agency reported on Monday that Matthew Miller and Jeffrey Fowle were accused of “committing hostile acts” on the territory of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DRPK). The suspicions about the two men had been confirmed by evidence and the men’s statements. KCNA did not provide details on the exact date of the trial.

KCNA said Matthew Miller, 24, was detained on April 10. He arrived to North Korea as a tourist. However, his behavior on the border control checkpoint was inadequate, the agency said. KCNA said he had torn up his tourist visa and shouted that he had come to the DRPK because he chose the country as a shelter.

Jeffrey Fowle entered the country on April 29.” A US citizen that had arrived to the DRPK on April 29 as a tourist, had conducted certain acts that violate the laws of our country,” KCNA said.

The US has no formal diplomatic relations with North Korea.
