North Korea has released images of the moment Kim Jong Un’s uncle was dragged from a meeting by police following his dismissal from government for ‘criminal acts that baffle imagination’.
The hermit state has reportedly ‘thrown the book’ at Kim’s former second-in-command, Jang Song Thaek, accusing him today of a string of crimes including womanising, alcohol abuse and ‘living a depraved life.’
Insisting Jang had failed to toe the Party line, the government, in an astonishingly frank and poetic revelation, said he had ‘dreamed different dreams’.
And within days of his dismissal, Jang was already beginning to be erased from the country’s history as a previously recorded documentary about Kim was released with the disgraced statesman airbrushed out of every scene.
And to cap his public humiliation, state television reportedly aired footage of Jang being arrested by uniformed police officers during a high-profile meeting in Pyongyang in front of hundreds of stony-faced colleagues.
