KOBE (Kyodo) A Kyoto Prefecture trading house president who has been convicted of illegally shipping products to North Korea received an e-mail from an unidentified North Korean in April asking for delivery of a reagent to check for adverse effects from radioactivity, investigative sources said Tuesday.
The sources said the Hyogo Prefectural Police, who arrested the 50-year-old man in May, are trying to identify who sent the e-mail, suspecting the request could be related to North Korea’s nuclear test that was conducted a month later.
