A Daily NK source has revealed that municipal and provincial Chosun Workers' Party secretaries and cadres from judicial and security organs have been summoned en masse to Pyongyang. Regional heavyweight officials are being kept in the dark about the details of Jang Sung Taeks elimination in distant Pyongyang, but rumor inside North Korea already is that the staff recall is designed to weed out elements loyal to the aunts husband and instill fear throughout society.
The source from North Hamkyung Province told Daily NK on the 6th, Recently, workers with city and province departments of administration, along with branch heads of the Ministry of Public Security and National Security Agency, have all been called to Pyongyang on suspicion of illegality. He added that people are growing anxious because they don't know whats happening.

North Korea has expanded facilities at two of its political prison camps, Amnesty International has revealed.
A recently released report that utilized satellite imagery to inspect Camp 15 in South Hamkyung Province and Camp 16 in North Hamkyung Province found evidence of new housing blocks and continuing tight security at the infamous sites.
According to the report, Camp 16 covers approximately 560 km2, an area more than three times the size of Washington, D.C.
Construction of the new housing blocks indicates that the camp has seen a slight population increase. Camp 15, also known as Yodok, has had 39 housing blocks removed and six new ones erected.
The report also includes testimonies from escapees, including a former security guard at Camp 16 who described detainees having to dig their own graves.
Amnesty Internationals East Asia Researcher Rajiv Narayan was quoted as saying, “The gruesome reality of North Korea’s continued investment in this vast network of repression has been exposed. We urge the authorities to immediately and unconditionally release all those prisoners of conscience held in political prison camps and close the camps immediately.”
It is estimated that hundreds of thousands North Koreans remain detained in the countrys prison facilities.
However, Jang Song Taek used his power within the Party to form a force that could be called upon to aid him at any time. These people are probably holding their breath at the moment, too, but who knows how they would react if they felt backed into a corner by being removed, Kim added.
It seems he is following the Mao tactic. When in doubt, purge.
I wonder if he will start by making each of them offer a confession of wrongs committed against the leader or the party.
I would not doubt it, that seems to be a requirement. A couple of months (after they are punshed) we will be given the verdict I guess.
North Korea is truly the anus of the planet even with a lot of competition.
North and South Korea are a prime laboratory of freedom and socialism.
And they are China’s terror outpost on their east. Junk yard dogs. NK wouldn’t exist without the military and financial backing of China. Period.
It must be real misery to live in NK, even for the rich & privileged.
Sort of like living in an outhouse shared with a family of rattlesnakes.
It must take an awful lot of drugs/alcohol to get to sleep at night.
The only thing NK has in generous quantities.
Hey Jet Jaguar like I say I hear aunt may be in line getting purge
Yeah he going after auntie if you believe UK Telegraph
even the rich and privileged on living on a razors edge. They have to show they worship Dear Leader like everyone else. When they are supposed to mourn they have to make sure the people with clipboards checks off their name at least twice and they have to mourn long and loud enough to satisfy new Dear Leader. Or perish.
Yes, there is a pretty big meth and other drug problem in NK, mainly because the government is probably the one making the drugs, I would not doubt. Soma....
Auntie better support the purge of her hubby if she wants to stick around.
In the end there can be only Un.
Daggone it, I never get invited to the good parties.
I wonder of the CIA can get one of its bugged flies on that wall...
I don’t know about Auntie she seem like hothead LOL!
A Cornered Animal is a Dangerous One.
Yep, although it doesn’t bother me too much that it commie apparatchiks about to get the whacking.
