Ending ship-based smuggling on border

North Korean authorities ordered ships traveling between China and North Korea to have a security official from the Ministry of State Security on board in order to crack down on smuggling. 

Earlier this month, the MSS announced that anyone caught engaging in criminal activity near the border, including smuggling and attempting to defect, will be subject to strong punishments rather than rehabilitative measures. 

The announcement of several measures pertaining to illegal activity near the border in the space of a month demonstrates how sensitive North Korean authorities are to smuggling and information leaks in the area.
