The crew of a South Korean fishing boat recently captured and released by North Korea said that there was no harsh treatment during their detainment.
The boat "391 Hungjin" carrying ten sailors returned to the South on October 27th, six days after the North captured it for illegally intruding into its waters.
Pyongyang said it had decided to send them back "from a humanitarian point of view."
The repatriated crew appeared before the National Assembly on Tuesday and said that they were detained at a hotel near Wonsan Port.
The captain said that North Korean authorities questioned the crew about why they were fishing in North Korean waters, adding they were questioned for about four days.
The captain said that there was no abusive treatment during questioning.
