North Korean despot Kim Jong Un ordered the execution of his education minister for not sitting properly during a meeting. The dictator had Kim Yong-Jin, 63, shot dead after he felt that the vice premier was slouching in parliament. Interrogators found Yon-Jin to be an ‘anti-revolutionary agitator’ and recommended death by firing squad.
News of the execution, which took place in July, was leaked through a South Korean broadcaster yesterday. The report said, “Vice premier for education Kim Yong-Jin was executed. [He] was denounced for his bad sitting posture when he was sitting below the rostrum.”
Un was said to have lost his temper when he saw Yong-Jin sat in his chair with a “bad attitude”.
Yong-Jin was not the only senior North Korean official to face disciplinary action recently. Kim Yong-chol was sent to a “ideological re-education farm” last month after colleagues complained of his “overbearing attitude.”
Kim Jong-Un. Not a guy to be crossed.
