It is reported that a family of a resident of Samjiyeon, Ryanggang Province, who has recently been experiencing difficulties in living, has escaped from North Korea in a situation where borders are closed due to the novel coronavirus infection (COVID-19) and the security forces are increasingly cracking down.

A source from Yanggang Province told Daily NK on the 7th, “It is known that a family living in Samjiyeon City left a full-fledged letter to the Security Council that they could not stand it any longer, and it is known that they escaped on the 22nd of last month, which is shocking to the Security Council and the surrounding residents.”

The head of the family who defected is a woman who works as a farm worker in Samjiyon City, and it is said that she has had difficulties in making a living by raising her brother and sister alone without a husband.

According to the source, the family’s defection became known when the leader of the inminban and the villagers, who found it strange that there was no smoke from their chimney for two days, and the villagers, opened the door and found the letters written by them.

According to the sources, the contents of the letter that the family actually left to the National Security Agency are as follows:

“I can’t live anymore, because Samjiyeon has to give only the city residents enough rations so that they do not die of starvation, and the rural residents have no distribution and only the people’s economic plan has to die. I tried to death to do just enough to put it in my mouth. But it got harder and harder and nothing was achieved. These days, even walls are being built on the borders to prevent the smuggling of medicinal herbs or fruits, so I decided to leave because I couldn’t see any more.

I thought that my family would die of starvation quietly lying down side by side, but I am forced to leave because it is impossible to starve my children to death with my own hands. No matter where he goes, he will not betray his motherland, and he will go to China to quietly farm and build and sell his wages, eating three meals a day and trying to die.

It is absolutely not a bad idea, so please do not harm your brothers or relatives. don’t wait for us I will never come back.”

On the other hand, the city’s safety department also conducted a resident registration investigation project and gave instructions to complete it quickly, the source said.

It is said that after this incident and widespread rumors spread throughout the city, the city’s security department started a project to identify the ideological trends of the residents, centering on the chiefs of the inminban and informants, in order to prevent ideological agitation among the border residents.

A source said, “This incident has been reported to the Cabal.” “Currently, the Cabal Committee is using evil to prevent the escape (escape) unconditionally, even by shooting and killing them, saying that we must stop the procession of shameless national traitors mercilessly rather than forgive them.” .
