Alleged leaker of Kim Jong Un’s whereabouts executed
An alleged leaker of information about Kim Jong Un’s visit to Samjiyon last October was executed in Pyongyang in late December, Daily NK has learned.
In mid-October, North Korean authorities conducted a massive operation to identify the leaker of Kim’s October visit to Samjiyon. North Korean security authorities viewed the leak as a major breach of the regime’s security network because news of Kim’s visit was reported in South Korean media before being published in state media.
The director of the Hyesan office of the Ministry of State Security (MSS), North Korea’s main security agency, reportedly planned to resign in the wake of the leak, but Daily NK sources report he is still in office. ......
