Mexican court denies Israeli group’s request to sell N. Korean ship
Isreali law group looking to recoup $330m in damages awarded by U.S. court over abduction 15 years ago
Mexican courts have declined a request from an Israel-based legal group to sell a North Korean ship currently held in Mexico, to pay for legal damages awarded by a U.S. court.
The Shurat HaDin law center fights legal battles on behalf of victims of terrorism. The group won $330 million in damages for the abduction of a South Korean pastor who was presumed abducted and tortured by North Korea 15 years ago.
The confusing case highlights the difficulty of recouping such damages from the DPRK.
