S. Korea police arrest 2 for spying for North Korea

SEOUL (AFP) - Two people including a Korean businessman in New Zealand have been arrested on suspicion of collecting intelligence on military equipment for North Korea, police said on Thursday. The pair, arrested in early May, were a 74-year-old man identified only as Lee, and Kim, 56, who acquired New Zealand citizenship and was involved in trading with North Korea. Lee was sentenced to life in prison on espionage charges in 1972 and was released on parole in 1990, but still retains allegiance to Pyongyang, police said in a statement. The two had collected information on military equipment and devices capable of disturbing global positioning system (GPS) signals, an investigator told AFP on condition of anonymity.
