A KOREAN-born man living in Sydney has been accused of brokering sales and discussing the supply of weapons of mass destruction on behalf of North Korea.

Chan Han Choi, the first person to be charged under the Weapons of Mass Destruction Act, has been formally refused bail by Parramatta Bail Court.

The 59-year-old man did not appear before Magistrate Carl Milovanovic, and is scheduled to appear in Central Local Court next week.

He faces six charges relating to provision of services for weapons of mass destruction in North Korea after being arrested at his Eastwood home on Saturday night.

“As a result of extensive investigations, the AFP alleged the man was acting as an economic agent of North Korea through his facilitation of various exports from North Korea,” a statement from the AFP read.

“The AFP believes the man was generating income for the North Korean government.”

The man, who is of South Korean descent, has been living in Australia for the past 30 years and the AFP will allege he was involved in brokering the sale of missiles and missile componentry and expertise from North Korea and other international entities.

The AFP allege in court documents Choi brokered the services, being the sale of missiles, knowing that it would assist a weapons of mass destruction program.

It’s alleged Choi brokered the sale of the missiles, a measurement system for the projectiles and “related expertise”, from Kim Jong-un’s regime to a man named Raymond Chao.

He is also accused of brokering the sale of coal produced in North Korea to entities in Vietnam and Indonesia, in violation of global sanctions against the regime.

  1. Sydney korean man with surname ‘Chan’… hmmm Chan is not a likely korean surname Chang – yes.

    meanwhile the chemtrails over sideney is thick and heavy – spraying like crazy everyday – rain or shine

  2. “The man, who is of South Korean descent, has been living in Australia for the past 30 years and the AFP will allege he was involved in brokering the sale of missiles and missile componentry and expertise from North Korea and other international entities.”

    There would be reason to send the man out as an agent to sell missiles – yes missiles, some big stuff – if there were not buyers.

    • I think he buys for the state to help make the missiles.

      • Somebody in Australia is able to get their hands on missile parts and sell them to a man who brings them to North Korea. And I have a suspicion the man had been doing this for awhile, maybe 30 years, and just now gets caught. It is hard to tell the difference between theater, or just plain ‘he is useful until not useful anymore’.
