Public angry at North Korean officers for excessive fines 


North Korean people are forced to pay excessive fines when caught violating the reactionary thought and culture law. The law levies fines of KPW 1 million to KPW 1.5 million but, violators sometimes have to pay 10 times that amount. 

Recently, photo studios in several cities including Pyongyang, Hamhung, Sariwon and Wonsan were excessively fined for producing exotic photos with palm tree-lined beach as a background image. And when they protested their studios got temporarily or permanently closed. 

The Korean government condemn these acts saying the photo studios are helping get young people hooked on foreign culture.
