According to new reports, North Korea dictator Kim Jong-Un executed his direct relatives in order to prevent “mutiny.”
Last month, Kim Jong-Un championed the recent execution of his uncle, 67-year-old Jang Song-Thaek. Jang supposedly committed treachery by having “improper relations with several women” and because he “squandered foreign currency at casinos while he was receiving medical treatment in a foreign country under the care of the party.”
According to South Korea media outlets, a subsequent string of executions included Jang’s siblings, children, and grandchildren. Kim apparently wanted to ensure that “no trace of Kim Jong-Un’s uncle will be left.”
One source told Yonhap News Agency, “All relatives of Jang have been put to death, including even children.”
The victims were allegedly dragged out of their homes and then “shot in front of other people.”
RT reported, “Yonhap maintains that Jang Song-thaek’s elder sister, her husband Jon Yong-jin (N. Korean Ambassador to Cuba), Jang’s nephew Jang Yong-chol (N. Korean Ambassador to Malaysia) and his two sons, both around 20 years old, were slain. Underage sons and daughters and even grandchildren of the abovementioned officials were also reportedly killed…. Reportedly, Jang’s indirect relatives, such as the wife of the executed ambassador to Malaysia or other relatives by marriage were not put to death, but exiled to a distant village together with their families.”
The Kim dynasty has ruled North Korea for over six decades.
The dictator’s inexperience and love of power has many around the world terrified. Many claim that he has no boundaries when trying to prove the power and scope of his position.
