Pyongyang, August 24 (KCNA) — A private first class belonging to the U.S. 8th Army who had been arrested and prosecuted on the charge of attempted murder was shameless enough to totally deny his crime at the first trial on August 18, according to south Korean KBS.
As already reported, on May 15 this criminal together with other GIs of the same unit lay down drunken on the road, letting out strange cries, stopped a passing taxi to commit a brutal outrage against its driver and stabbed a south Korean civilian sir-named Pak with a dagger when the latter tried to stop him, leaving him in a critical condition.
At the trial, however, the U.S. criminal let loose a gangster-like sophism shifting the blame onto the victim, alleging that at that time he was holding the knife with its point towards him, seized with fear, and Pak grabbed him by the throat and got stabbed by his own mistake.
The GI criminal even insisted in a farfetched manner that he and his colleagues were not drunken and did not stop the taxi on purpose.
The impudent act of the GI criminal again whipped the south Koreans into fury.
