How the Trial of the American Citizen in North Korea May End

  

An American citizen will be put on trial for crimes against the state in North Korea in what surely isn't a facade in the ongoing bargaining between North Korea and the U.S. and what will surely be a fair and balanced trial based on real facts. 

Kenneth Bae is by all accounts a 44-year-old Korean-American and devout Christian tour operator who was living in Dalian, China, a city close to the North Korean border. Or, he was until November 3, 2012 when he was arrested in Rajin for crimes that have yet to be explained. He's been accused of attempting to overthrow the government, but no one knows how or why. 

"In the process of investigation he admitted that he committed crimes aimed to topple the DPRK with hostility toward it," the state-operated Korean Central News Agency reported Saturday. "His crimes were proved by evidence," it said, without elaborating on the crimes or the evidence he allegedly provided. The report added he will soon "face judgment" in front of the North Korean Supreme Court.
