    The Australian Federal Police has charged a 59-year-old Sydney man with being a broker and economic agent for the rogue North Korean regime, alleging he provided services to a "weapons of mass destruction program" and had tried to arrange the sale of North Korean missile parts and missile guidance technology to third parties overseas.

    The man, named as Chan Han Choi, is understood to have been South-Korean born, but has lived in Australia for the past three decades and is a naturalised Australian citizen.

    ....."This case is like nothing we have ever seen on Australian soil," Mr Gaughan said. Over the weekend, Mr Choi was charged with six offences, including two under Australia's Weapons of Mass Destruction (Prevention of Proliferation) Act 1995 – the first time anyone has been charged under that law. The other charges relate to alleged breaches of United Nations and Australian sanctions against the North Korean regime.

    Thus proving that the 1995 law came in handy................

    Not going to happen in Australia there, Sweetie. That is going to have to go down in the US. But, you knew that, huh?

    The vast majority of South Koreans are generally sympathetic to North Korea and it's hard to tell the difference between them ideologically. It's wrong to assume that South Koreans are more democratic and law abiding and other Koreans, who are legally in Australia, may be acting as agents of North Korea, especially in Sydney. We need to understand that South Koreans and North Koreans are basically the same people or blood relatives.
