朝鲜最高法院列举了对韩裔美国公民裴埈皓的一些指控。这名旅游运营商因被控阴谋推翻朝鲜政府上个月被判15年的劳教。

法院发言人星期四对朝鲜中央通讯社说,裴埈皓去年11月在罗先市被捕,当时他随身携带反平壤的宣传品。

这名发言人说,裴埈皓在美国和韩国的教会宣扬要推翻朝鲜政府。他还被控拉拢1500名朝鲜人,中国人和其他国家的人,到中国各地的被称为“制造阴谋”的据点,进行反对朝鲜的演讲。

这位发言人说,裴埈皓对所有指控供认不讳。裴埈皓在不对外公开的审理中被定罪和判刑,他的律师未被允许出庭辩护。

North Korea's supreme court has detailed some of the charges against a Korean-American tour operator who was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor last month for plotting to overthrow the government.

A court spokesman told the North's official Korean Central News Agency on Thursday that Kenneth Bae was arrested in the city of Rason in November while in the possession of anti-Pyongyang literature.

The spokesman said Bae was working through churches in the U.S. and South Korea to bring down the North Korean government.  He was also accused of bringing more than 1,500 people from North Korea, China and other countries to what were called "plot-breeding" bases around China, and giving lectures opposing Pyongyang.

The spokesman said that Bae had confessed to all the charges.  He was convicted and sentenced in a closed-door trial that his attorney was not allowed to attend.
