South Korean convicted of 'retweeting' North Korean propaganda - Herald Sun
A South Korea court today convicted a 55-year-old man for "retweeting" North Korean propaganda, the Yonhap news agency reported.
The man, surnamed Cho, was given a two-year suspended sentence for violating South Korea's National Security Law, in the first conviction of its type.
Cho relayed Twitter messages from communist North Korea's official website, Uriminzokkiri, which also releases information through the micro-blogging service.
Cho retweeted messages to 3,000 followers between August and December last year, the report said.
