Look at Long list of North Korea's crime punishable by death.



Michelle Kissenkoetter, director of the FIDH Asia desk, told MailOnline:
'Many of the crimes that are punishable by death are very ambiguous. It's not very clear what can have you committed to execution. That lack of clarity is extremely concerning. The judicial system in North Korea is not transparent. Even if you are accused of a crime you are not given a fair trial.'
The crimes are:

Plots against National Sovereignty (discretionary)

1Terrorism (discretionary)

3 Treason (discretionary)

4 Damage or destruction (discretionary)

5 Perfidy against the People (discretionary)

6 Intentional murder (discretionary)

7 Extremely grave crime of deliberate damage or destruction of resources reserved for purposes of combat and military facilities (mandatory)

8 Extremely grave crime of seizing state property (mandatory)

9 Extremely grave crime of the deliberate damage or destruction of state property (mandatory)

10 Extremely grave crime of currency counterfeiting (mandatory)

11 Extremely grave crime of smuggling and introducing jewels and coloured metal onto the black market (mandatory)

12 Crime of illicitly selling the state's resources (discretionary)

13 Extremely grave crime of smuggling and introducing narcotics onto the black market (mandatory)

14 Extraordinarily grave act of delinquency (discretionary)

15 Crime of illegal business operations (discretionary)

16 Extremely grave crime of deliberately inflicting aggravated bodily injuries (discretionary)

17 Extremely grave crime of kidnapping (mandatory)

18 Extraordinarily grave crime of rape (discretionary)

19 Extremely grave crime of theft of private property (mandatory)

20 Extraordinarily grave crime of escape from prison (discretionary)

21 Crimes punishable by lifetime reform through labour or death penalty in exceptional circumstances (discretionary)

22 Circulation of forex punishable by execution

23 Execution by gun squad for divulging classified information via cell phone

The crimes punishable by death are split into two categories. At least nine are guaranteed to result in execution, including kidnapping, seizing state property and theft of private property. The punishment for making counterfeit money, illicitly selling the state's resources and escaping from prison are discretionary.


Since Kim Jong-Un rose to power in 2011, he has reportedly purged more than 70 officials. While he usually opts for firing squads using machine guns, there have been reports of officials being killed using mortar rounds at close range.

  2. We should adopt this list in Naija. The society would straighten up over night. Official corruption (police, politicians, etc.) should be added to the list as well. Heck while where added throw rape in as well.
