Finally a little justice for the SK Coasties.

The Captain of the Chinese fishing boat that murdered a Korean Coast Guard officer last year was sentenced to 30 years in prison and a 20,000,000 Won fine. The prosecution was seeking the death penalty. Nine other members of the crew were sentenced to terms of 1.5 to 5 years.

Not surprising anyone the Chinese government doesn't accept the verdict. What remains to be seen is if the South Korean government doesn't roll over and set the Captain and others free to appease the Chinese government.
