It is reported that the deputy secretary of the Youth Alliance Committee in Jeongpyeong-gun, North Hamgyeongnam-do, was arrested for stealing materials during the construction of the Geumya River Power Plant 2 and is currently being investigated by the Ministry of Security. The misappropriation of materials is a matter to be taken seriously as an anti-party act, but it is said that thanks to the wife of a partisan family, generous punishment is expected to be imposed on him.

On the 15th, a South Hamgyeong-do source told Daily NK, “Mom Kim, deputy secretary of the Jeongpyeong-gun Youth Alliance, who was working as battalion commander of the Jeongpyeong Army Battalion of the South Hamgyeong Brigade in the construction of the Geumya River Power Plant 2, was arrested in the middle of last month on charges of stealing construction materials. It is currently being sent to the preliminary section of the Ministry of Safety and is being investigated.”
