The United States Department of State’s Transnational Organized Crime Rewards Program is offering a reward of up to $500,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Han Linlin.
Han Linlin is a Chinese national who allegedly operated an illicit procurement network for tobacco and other goods on behalf of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK). It is alleged that Han worked as the representative for numerous front companies to secure new business lines, directed transshipment of goods destined for the DPRK, and ensured their illicit operations would continue without interruption despite the efforts of the U.S. and U.N. to halt trade with North Korea.
On March 21, 2023, a federal arrest warrant was issued for Han Linlin in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, Washington, D.C., after he was charged with Conspiracy to Commit Bank Fraud, Conspiracy to Violate and Violations of International Emergency Economic Powers Act, North Korean Sanctions Regulations, Conspiracy to Launder Monetary Instruments, and Laundering Monetary Instruments.
