Han Yong Song, a researcher of the Institute for American Studies of the DPRK Ministry of Foreign Affairs, issued the following commentary on Thursday:

On September 6, the U.S. Department of Justice prosecuted what they call a DPRK citizen named “Pak Jin Hyok” as the principal offender to the Federal Justice Court in Los Angeles for hacking attack into the American film company “Sony Pictures Entertainment”, an incident that happened in 2014.

And on the same day the U.S. Treasury Department kicked up a farce of putting “Pak Jin Hyok” and the “Korea Expo Joint Venture Company”, which they claim he is working for, on the sanctions list against the DPRK.
