N. Korea kills official

North Korean army chief Ri Yong Gil was executed on February 2, 2016 and is the latest in executions for corruption. There have been more than 100 executions during the rule of the current leader who has been in the power since 2011. The highest rank of a person executed was the execution of the North Korean leader's uncle in 2013.

 

The news of the execution of the North Korean army chief Ri Yong Gil came amid tension caused by North Korea conducting a nuclear test of the rocket launch, which received international condemnation and criticism.

 

Ri Yong Gil, an army general, was considered to be one of the top five positions. Ri was considered the North Korean leader’s most trusted person. He accompanied the leader on frequent visits to the army units and factories. It was when Ri missed two important events that speculation started. Officials have not said how they obtained the information and did not reveal any further facts or details as it is more confidential information on North Korea.

According to North Korean news reports, Kim Jong-un stated that he had called the nationals and the citizens to work against corruption, misuse of authority, abuse of power to ensure the unity of North Korea.

 

In 2015, the notable execution was of an Armed forces Minister for disloyalty. Some of the high ranking officials in North Korea were absent for meetings and public events and it has been said that they were removed or executed.
