After 17 months in prison, he was returned to the US in a coma. He died a few days later.

The Warmbier’s were mentioned by President Trump in his State of the Union speech and they’ve been a guest of the US Vice-President, Mike Pence, in South Korea attending the Winter Olympics where they spoke with North Korean defectors.

The conference will be held in Geneva on February 20th – and is open to everyone. Registration is required.
