Two people expected to be severely punished for last year’s explosion in Chongjin factory

It was reported that the head of the chemical lab and a researcher were blamed for late October’s explosion that happened in Chongjin Chemical and Textile Factory during an experiment to reduce North Korea’s dependence on imported raw materials and chemical reagents.  

The two suspects are currently detained by the provincial Ministry of Social Security’s preliminary examination section and will likely face a life sentence or 15 years of forced labor giving that they were doing the state’s work, not a private business at the time of the accident. 

The state has been keeping citizens quiet, forbidding them from talking about the accident in an organized way.
