Do not bring any drugs into Korea, Dutch ambassador in Seoul Lody Embrechts warns sports fans attending the Winter Olympics starting in the Asian country next week. "The controls are strict and the punishments are severe. Really don't do that", he said in an interview with the Telegraaf. Other than that, he advises Dutch Olympics fans to be prepared for the cold weather and respect the local culture.
The Dutch embassy in Seoul may have been involved in helping bring the family of Kim Jong-nam to safety after he was assassinated, accoding to South Korean news agency Yonhap. Kim Jong-nam was the half brother of North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un.
Cheolima Civil Defense, an organization that helps North Koreans flee when they need to, also thanked Dutch Ambassador Lody Embrechts for his "resolute and strong action" on their website, according to newspaper AD.
