Since Kim Jong Eun came to power, the gap between the rich and poor has become increasingly evident, and therefore violent crimes have increased, Radio Free Asia reported.
Radio Free Asia’s sources in North Korea stated that on September 1st a soldier who was on guard duty killed a resident in Hoiryung. Also, on September 7th, a boy killed his mother in Chongjin. The sources added that these crimes were committed mostly because of money. The Kim Jong Eun regime hasn’t controlled the rich’s extreme use of money, so the gap between the rich and poor has come to the forefront and has led to violent crimes by poor people, the sources said.
