N. Korean authorities mobilize inminban leaders to crackdown on street vendors

North Korean authorities have recently mobilized inminban (people’s unit) leaders in some areas of the country to crackdown on street vendors, Daily NK has learned. 

A source in Yanggang Province told Daily NK on Monday that “the inminban leaders are even more vicious than the police, so locals are in total shock.”

According to the source, an inminban leader apprehended a young woman in her thirties on Apr. 28. The woman was carrying a baby on her back while she sold cabbage and green onions. The woman reportedly begged the inminban leader to “help her out and [let] her sell [her wares],” but her pleas were of no use. The inminban leader commanded her to “hurry and get up” as she tried to chase the woman away. ......
