NJDC is deeply saddened by the tragic passing of Otto Warmbier, who's young and promising life was taken far too soon. The last time the world saw Warmbier, he was standing trial in North Korea. At that trial on February 29th, 2016, Warmbier begged for forgiveness for the act of stealing a poster but instead was sentenced to 15 years of “hard labor” in a North Korean labor camp. Upon being released on June 13th, 2017, Warmbier’s family revealed he had been comatose for over a year. He passed away on June 19.
