Announcing this last night, the Navy sairl the inquiry would have three phases, including the mission and operation of the ship, its secure last Jan. '23 by North Korea and the detention ol the crew. Five admirals will constitute the court, with Cmdr. William R. Nesvsome acting as judge advocate. Ncsvsome said there was no question of seeking to apply to the Pueblo's crew the Military Code of Conduct, which forbids making confessions sshiie a prisoner of war. ; He said the reason is that "we North Korea" anrl the crewmen ' were illegally detained. While the C S. sailors were : imprisoned North Korea made i public what it said were confes- ! sions that the ship was in coast- i al waters, but the Nas-y bus denounced these as false. It says it's recalling itself to correct minor defects!"
