The US Court has asked North Korea to pay $501 million for the torture and death of US college student, Otto Warmbier, in 2017. He died after he was released from the imprisonment in Pyongyang. In 2016 he was arrested for 15 years over suspicion of stealing a propaganda poster but was released when he went in the coma in June 2017. Otto's parents filed a lawsuit in April over their son's death and sought justice.
