A court in Russia's Far East ruled Monday to fine a South Korean national 500,000 rubles (about $19,000) for illegally shipping radioactive equipment from Libya in 2004.

Kim Jong Hon, the president of All Nations Co. Ltd, was arrested in December 2004 after using forged documents to bring 13 devices containing depleted uranium to the Korsakov port in the south of Russia's Sakhalin Island.

The devices, intended for the construction of a liquefied natural gas plant near the port, were not marked with radioactivity warnings.

Jong Hon admitted his guilt, and said he had no intention of appealing the verdict.
