A North Korean fisherman was publicly executed for listening to foreign radio stations at sea

Radio Free Asia report says

A North Korean fishing-boat captain is believed to have been publicly executed for listening to banned foreign radio stations while at sea.

The man, known by his surname, Choi, and said to have been in his 40s, was killed by firing squad in front of 100 boat captains and fisheries executives, a Radio Free Asia report said, citing sources in the country.

North Korea has strict rules governing the behavior of its citizens and prohibits them from listening to most foreign radio stations. Radio Free Asia noted, however, that international broadcasts could be picked up while in the open water.

Choi, who is said to have owned a fleet of more than 50 ships, is thought to have been turned in by one of his crew members after he became unpopular with the crew. He confessed to authorities and was charged with "subversion against the party," the Radio Free Asia report quoted an unnamed North Korean law-enforcement official as saying.

And Trump is in love with Kim Jong Un.

1. If he had been listening to Fox News radio, his life would have been spared.

3. Remember Trump's glowing review of Un's strong leadership, especially considering his ascent to

Power at a young age. Really talented.

5. Choi owned 50 ships? Does DPRK allow that? Maybe Kim Jong Un just wanted to seize those ships.

 


I'll admit that I don't really know much about the North Korean government.
