The North Korean regime has shot five officials of the country’s Ministry of Economy after they criticized the policies of the dictator, Kim Jong-un, according to local information collected by the Daily Mail.
According to these reports, the officials were shot on July 30. Victims made critical comments against the communist leader at a dinner. These comments reached his superiors and the secret police proceeded to arrest him.
These officials appear to have criticized the country’s economic stagnation and expressed the need to seek international cooperation.
After an internal investigation, those investigated were forced to confess their intention to conspire against the regime and sentenced to death.
In addition, the families of the five executed were transferred to a prison camp in Yodeok, famous for hosting prisoners and political dissidents.
