From the author:

Here is the formal statement I gave to Federal Police on 16 June 2012:

On a trip to visit family in Seoul in April, I was approached by a man and a woman who claimed to be North Korean defectors. They presented me with a DVD that recently came into their possession and asked me to translate it. They also asked me to post the completed film on the Internet so that it could reach a worldwide audience. I believed what I was told and an agreement was made to protect their identities (and mine).

Despite my concerns about what I was viewing when I returned home, I proceeded to translate and post the film on YouTube because of the film’s extraordinary content. I have now made public my belief that this film was never intended for a domestic audience in the DPRK. Instead, I believe that these people, who presented themselves as ‘defectors’ specifically targeted me because of my reputation as a translator and interpreter.

Furthermore, I now believe these people work for the DPRK. The fact that I have continued to translate and post the film in spite of this belief does not make me complicit in their intention to spread their ideology. I chose to keep posting this film because – regardless of who made it – I believe people should see it because of the issues it raises and I stand by my right to post it for people to share and discuss freely with each other.

I have translated this film, laid in the English voice over and subtitles, and on legal advice have blurred the identity of the presenter and/or blacked out certain elements.

    Actually, you are complicit with DPRK.  Admitting it would be better than this half-baked denial while at the same time spreading this crap.  Most interesting is that you have sought out, and received legal advice as to posting this.

       Complicit?  That’s a bit far reaching, RM. 

      • Richmondman

        I was responding to the claim in the article  – “The fact that I have continued to translate and post the film in spite of this belief (that they work for North Korea) does not make me complicit in their intention to spread their ideology.”  This entire article is a contradiction to that statement.  The author is either complicit, or a complete and total fool.

        • FogCityJournal

           Gotcha.  Thanks for the clarification.

          • Richmondman

            Actually, the since the author doesn’t know who these people represent, Sabine could be a tool for anyone, including the CIA, or some other agency with an agenda.  There is irony in posting this article after the one on Journalism.  This is the opposite of journalism.

            • FogCityJournal

              No, it’s not journalism, but it’s interesting to see how the DPRK thinks.  I would also venture to say that discerning viewers will be able to separate fact from fiction.

    Propaganda is a tool to control the uninformed masses, true as it may be there is nothing startling or new in this video. We live in a society as puppets controlled by our puppet masters.
    The video has it’s uses for the uninformed as a de-propaganda tool.
