Inside Kim Jong Un’s Horror Executions

One report said that Kim Jong-un’s brutal North Korean regime burned bodies with flamethrowers and children were killed by firing squad.

A South Korean human rights organization has documented 23 public executions in rogue conditions and said the largest number was for “crimes” like watching foreign films – not for rape or murder.

The report features testimonies of North Korean defectors, who were forced to watch executions along with family members of convicts.

All 23 public murders recorded by Transitional Justice Working Group has been in place since Kim came to power in December 2011.

The actual number of executions carried out in the past 10 years is believed to be much higher.

Two of the recorded executions were hanging and 21 by firing squad.

Speaking of a shooting death in 2012, one witness said: “The convict was dragged out of the car like a dog before the public execution.

“The person about to be executed was in a near-death condition and his eardrums appeared to be damaged, leaving him unable to hear or say anything.”

Before another death by firing squad in North Hwanghae Province in 2014, convicts were tied to poles and had cobblestones stuffed into their mouths.

Some of the bodies after the execution were burned with flamethrowers in front of their families.

One witness said: “In Pyongyang in 2012 or 2013, the executed body was burned with a flamethrower in front of the crowd after the execution.

“The alleged family had to participate in the crime and sit in the front row to observe the scene.

“The father fainted after seeing his son burn right in front of his eyes.”

‘Kids START’

In 2012, a child was executed with an AK-47 rifle.

Describing the gruesome killing, one fugitive said: “Blood splattered, flesh tattered.

“Authorities doubled the body of the executed person by stepping on it, and putting it in a sack.

“I heard they threw the sack away.”

Workers and students were forced to attend executions and look prisoners in the eye before they were killed.

Speaking of a murder in North Hamgyong in 2012, the witness said: “Even if there is fluid leaking from the convict’s brain, people still have to stand in line and look directly into the face of the accused. decided as a warning.”

‘Families NEED TO SEE’

Attendees are screened with metal detectors and phones are banned to prevent filming of the executions – believed to be evidence the regime’s self-consciousness about the details of the brutal murders spreads to the outside country.

Seven of the executions were for watching or distributing Korean films. The other five are drug criminals, prostitution and human traffickers.

The remainder is for murder, attempted murder or sexual assault.

According to The Times, it is difficult to verify the report’s claims – yet they are consistent with other testimonies from defectors and experts over the years.

In 2020, the hermit kingdom’s state media warned of “ideological and cultural poisoning” caused by foreign films, music and languages.

SICK MODE

Kim took control of North Korea after the death of his father Kim Jong-il in 2011.

Today, the people of North Korea are required to observe an 11-day period of mourning for the 10th anniversary of Jong-il’s death.

One resident told Radio Free Asia: “During the mourning period, we are not allowed to drink, laugh or participate in entertainment activities.”

In 2013, the young leader executed his biological uncle Jang Song-thaek by firing squad after he was accused of being a traitor.
