Executed for international calls

Posted by karmalily on November 28, 2007

A North Korean factory boss accused of making international phone calls was executed by a firing squad in front of 150,000 people, it emerged today…

Its citizens are banned from communicating with the outside world, part of the regime’s authoritarian policies seeking to prevent any challenge to the iron-fisted rule of Kim Jong II…

The communist country insists it does not violate human rights…

Yikes! This is insane. It’s so hard for me, as an American, to imagine living in a country like this, where you have no freedom at all. Even though I think the threat of a North Korean nuclear attack on the West or South Korea is slim since it would enter them into a war they could not win, something major needs to be done for their human rights violations. Sanctions were placed on North Korea because of their nuclear weapons programs; I think it’s time they’re sanctioned for their harsh treatment of citizens.
