Otto F. Warmbier returns home in coma while travel companies say North Korea is safe to travel!

Published on : Saturday, June 17, 2017

indexOne of the most frequently asked question that the website of Young Pioneer Tours encounter about North Korea: “How safe is it?”


The company says “Extremely safe!” in its reply. The answer remains the same on its site without qualification even one of its customers named Otto F. Warmbier return this week in a coma with what doctors described on this Thursday as “extensive loss of brain tissue in all regions of his brain.”


This young 22 year old is a student at the University of Virginia, traveled to Pyongyang on a trip that was organized by Young Pioneer Tours in December 2015. From then, this boy was imprisoned in North Korea over alleged efforts to take away a propaganda sign from his hotel room. For over a year, North Korea did not allow diplomats requests to visit him. Suddenly on Tuesday, the country unexpectedly released him on “humanitarian grounds.”


After his release, several questions have come to the forefront about Mr. Warmbier’s precipitous decline in health conditions. Questions have arised that   whether he was subjected to repeated beating, as pointed out by one senior American official, pinpointing recent intelligence reports, or slipped into a coma after contracting botulism and taking a sleeping pill, as declared by the North Korean diplomats. Besides, it is yet to be clarified why North Korea kept Mr. Warmbier’s medical condition under wrap for so long and chose to release him now.
