Appeal denied: North Korean man accused of money laundering faces US extradition

Mun Chol Myong vowed to appeal once more in Malaysia’s federal court, where a final decision will be made

A North Korean man accused of money laundering will be extradited to the United States despite his appeal efforts, according to a verdict issued by the Kuala Lumpur High Court on Thursday.

Mun Chol Myong, a North Korean citizen residing in Malaysia, was arrested last December after the U.S. charged him with four counts of money laundering and two counts of conspiracy to launder money for North Korea.
