The exact day of the flight is unspecified, the reason is doubtful, the place where it hides is uncertain, the fate of the family is uncertain. However, in Italy Jo Song-gil, 48, moved well, he had studied with us between 2006 and 2009, he spoke the language perfectly, he returned as liaison secretary in 2015, he was promoted to charge of business in 2017 and he had activated a network of political connections, trying to establish commercial contacts to allow his country to circumvent international sanctions. A proof: in March of last year, when he was still the number one of the North Korean embassy in Rome, he had visited companies in the province of Treviso, including two companies that produce bathroom accessories and marble floors. It seems that at the beginning it was taken for a South Korean diplomat and perhaps on other occasions he also played on the equivocation.
