[SPECIAL] REVENGE KILLING (복수자)

URL복사

A teenage daughter of a North Korean SSA (State Security Agency) official has been found dead in HamKyungBukDo on or about July 20th, prompting the SSA to declare an emergency.

 

According to several defectors, the official in question is Ri Jong-il (43), an adept hunter of defectors who arrested many would-be defectors around HoeRyung. He was promoted to head up the SSA anti-defection unit's investigation sector as well as the secretary of the party cell in HamKyungBukDo. 

 

After his promotion, Ri continued to investigate defectors headed for South Korea and those arrested for the crime of divulging national secrets. He was in charge of classifying them as political criminals and sending them to the SSA indictment department. 

 

Local residents called Ri "oppasi," a nickname reserved for evil cops. His dragnet was exceptional, and his surveillance operation was responsible for stopping defection around HoeRyung, which used to be a popular location to cross the Duman River into China. 

 

The murder incident began with an arrest of six family members from MangHyang-dong, HoeRyung. They were about to defect early January when they were caught and transferred to SSA.

 

Their family friend abducted Ri's daughter last May and threatened Ri to release the six prisoners. Ri refused to release the family and turned them over to the Province.

 

Ri's daughter had been attending Pohang Girls' School in Chongjin. She went to work at an agricultural cooperative in the countryside in May when she disappeared.

 

The abductors, referring themselves as "Avengers," executed her and abandoned her corpse on the banks of SooSung stream in SongPyong district of Chongjin, leaving a threatening note. 

 

According to the informers, the SSA deemed the incident an emergency situation and alerted the families of the SSA workers as well as the police. These acts of violence against the SSA and the police authorities have occurred more frequently since Kim Jong-un came into power. 

 

This revenge murder comes at a time when the authorities are concentrating on a new directive called "the 100-day combat to catch spies," a campaign to crackdown on defectors.

진중권 교수, 송영길의원에 "성추행은 '문화'가 아니라 범죄...괜히 더듬어만지당이겠나?" 직격탄
더불어민주당 송영길 의원은 19일 오전 MBC라디오 '김종배의 시선집중'에 출연해 뉴질랜드 한국 대사관 현지 직원의 ‘엉덩이 툭툭’ 성추행 의혹에 대해 "문화의 차이도 있다고 본다"며 "같은 남자끼리 배도 한 번씩 툭툭 치고 엉덩이도 치고 그랬다"고 언급했다. 이는 지난 뉴질랜드 정부가 지난 2017년 12월 주뉴질랜드 대사관에서 근무하던 한국 외교관 A씨가 현지 남성 직원을 성추행했다는 혐의를 제기하며 직접 조사를 요구한 사건관련 발언이다. A씨는 피해 직원의 엉덩이를 만지는 등 3차례 성추행한 의혹을 받았고 뉴질랜드 사법 당국의 조사가 시작되기 전인 2018년 2월 임기 만료로 뉴질랜드를 떠났다. 외교부는 자체 조사를 통해 A씨에게 2019년 2월, 감봉 1개월의 징계를 내렸다. 그러나 피해자가 지난해 10월 뉴질랜드 경찰에 신고했고, 뉴질랜드 사법 당국은 A씨에 대한 체포영장을 발부하고 한국 정부에 수사 협조를 요청했다. 뉴질랜드 저신다 아던 총리가 지난달 문재인 대통령과의 통화에서 관련 문제를 제기하자 외교부는 필리핀에서 근무하고 있던 A씨를 최근 귀국 조치했다. A씨는 신체 접촉 사실은 인정하면서도 '성추행 의도는 전혀 없었다'며 혐의를 부인하는 것
