Samsu County officials jail elderly man for causing disturbance at police station

A man in his 60s was jailed in Samsu County, North Korea, for causing a disturbance at a police station while trying to deal with a domestic dispute. The man had been repeatedly demanding to meet with the head of the resident registry department and head of the political department due to an issue with his son. The man had been living with his son and his son’s wife since his own wife died, but the son and his wife allegedly scorned and abused the elderly man, leading him to ask the police to remove his son from his family registry so he could live alone. However, police officials told the man they could not remove the son from his family registry, leading to the man’s week-long outburst and subsequent jailing.
