A key member of Kim Jong Un’ s inner circle touted as a powerful military figure mysteriously vanished from public life recently , sparking rumors he was executed by a North Korean death squad after allegations of bribery , recent reports indicated .
Hwang Pyong – so, a Vice Marshall who held the most senior position in North Korea ’ s military, hasn’ t been seen in public since October 13 , sparking rumors of his death .
Kim has previously dispatched his enemies via a variety of gruesome methods , including shooting them with anti – aircraft weaponry at a close distance and feeding them to a pack of ravenous dogs.
News about Hwang ’ s troubles within Kim’ s regime emerged in mid – November , when South Korea ’ s spy agency reported the top aide and his deputy, Kim Won – hong , were expelled from the military ’ s General Politico Bureau and “ punished , ” Yonhap News Agency reported .
A rare inspection on the bureau was conducted after reports of “ impure attitude ” toward the volatile regime . The spy agency said it was looking into details about their punishment.
“ If Hwang was indeed kicked out of the Workers ’ Party, it would practically mean the end of his political career , and possibly his life , though it is unknown whether or not he is still alive, ” South Korea ’ s JoongAng Ilbo reported , according to the Telegraph.
Kim Won – hong was reportedly sentenced to one of North Korea ’ s prison camps . As for Hwang , many of Kim Jong Un’ s recent actions indicate the man who the dictator has trusted for about a decade was executed — possibly by the infamous firing squad that also killed Kim’ s uncle Jang Song Thaek .
The two officials allegedly had been receiving favors for promotions, the Telegraph reported . Kim ordered the two officials to be punished “ as a warning to others . ”
Kim’ s visit to the country ’ s Mount Paektu over the weekend hinted at Hwang ’ s possible execution. Kim usually visits the sacred mountain before he makes a significant decision , much like his father and grandfather had done , Korea Jongang Daily reported .
