North Korean fishing boat captain publicly executed for listening to banned foreign radio

The captain of a North Korean fishing vessel was publicly executed in North Korea in mid-October after he admitted to listening to Radio Free Asia (RFA).

A source for the US-funded Radio revealed that the man was executed by firing squad in front of dozens of other ship captains after he admitted listening to Radio Free Asia for more than a decade.

The source said, “We know that the man was called Toshi, who was in his forties and was working in the fishing base of the Central Party Bureau 39”.

He added, “They shot him openly at the base in front of 100 captains and managers of the facility’s fish processing plants. They also fired party officials, the base administration, and security officers who allowed Choi to work at sea.”
