NK cracks down on Chinese mobile phone users to prevent defections

first_img North Korea Market Price Update: June 8, 2021 (Rice and USD Exchange Rate Only) US dollar and Chinese reminbi plummet against North Korean won once again By Daily NK – 2016.10.13 4:58pm The North Korean authorities have ordered the State Security Department to “roundup” Chinese mobilephone users in the border areas to prevent mass defection. As a result,security agents are teaming up with signal detection units in North HamgyongProvince in a joint arrest operation.“An order to apprehend every last user of Chinesemobile phones in the border region was issued in early October. Following this,in Hoeryong City, signal detection experts from Chongjin City and Musan Countyas well as personnel from the provincial security agency’s Chemical ProcessingBureau and Transmission Maintenance Bureau were mobilized to track down andarrest users,” a source in North Hamgyong Province reported to Daily NK onOctober 11.“The State Security Department [SSD] deployed 10 operationalunits comprised of 3 agents each who work on 24-hour shifts with their ownvehicles (equipped with tracking devices). Youngagents in their 20s and 30s swiftly raid the locations right after an accuratelocation of the caller is identified using the mobile signal trackers.”Multiple sources in North Hamgyong Province corroborated this information.These measures have likely been put in place to prevent massdefection attempts after the border guard posts were compromised by flooding.Defections are often organized by a phone call to brokers on the Chinese sideof the border.North Korean security agents are known to be followingthrough with actual arrests in many cases instead of performing meresurveillance. They are seeking to instill fear by making ‘examples’ of thosewho make phone calls.“Agents armed with advanced equipment are evenpatrolling the corners of neighboring farm villages as well as the city, andarrested five phone users in the area on the first day of operations,” thesource said. “Residents are terrified saying, ‘Those guys are truly scary.’”She explained that the atmosphere became even more intense as theauthorities announced to the SSD that each agent willbe evaluated on their arrest performance. In fact, some residents are so scared that they are burying their mobile phonestightly wrapped in plastic in the ground or burning them in a furnace.Kim Jong Un has issued instructions in the past to punishusers of Chinese-made mobile phones for treason, in order to prevent residentsfrom defecting. However, crackdowns on these actions have not had the desiredeffect in the past, as leniency was frequently given in exchange for bribes.The source noted that state security agents from otherregions have been dispatched this time to prevent such corruption. Theintention is to establish a surveillance system between the security agents oneach other, and possibly punish those who do not perform well in the number ofarrests.“The dispatched agents have been given specificwarnings ‘not to be blinded by bribery’ in advance,” the source added.“If the current pace of surveillance and arrest continues, more than 90percent of Chinese mobile phone users are expected to disappear.” SHARE AvatarDaily NKQuestions or comments about this article?

Portfolio manager to pay $12,000 to BCSC

A portfolio manager has agreed to pay the British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC) $12,000 for a regulatory capital shortfall and associated compliance violations. The BCSC said Monday that Kilburn Ogilvie Waymann Investment Management Ltd. (KOWIM) and the firm’s chief compliance officer, Trevor Kilburn, are to pay $12,000, as part of a settlement agreement, for failing to establish and maintain an adequate compliance system, and failing to maintain a minimum level of regulatory capital. Related news SEC examines rules for inter-fund trading The settlement says that a compliance audit conducted by the BCSC in June 2011 found that the firm failed to maintain minimum regulatory capital between September 29, 2010 and July 14 2011; and, that it failed to establish and maintain an adequate compliance system. The agreement also notes that the firm cooperated fully with commission staff during and after the audit, acted quickly to correct the shortfall, and has no history of disciplinary problems. And, it says that before the compliance exam was complete, Kilburn hired an experienced compliance consultant to build a more comprehensive, firm specific compliance system, and to rewrite its policy and procedures manual.

Grateful Dead ‘Shakedown Stream’: ‘Rockin’ The Cradle’ Egypt 1978, Mickey Hart Pre-Show [Watch]

first_imgThe Grateful Dead‘s Shakedown Stream archive concert webcast series returns this Friday, July 31st. For this week’s broadcast, the band will revisit the well-known trip to Egypt in late 1978, which will include their performance in the shadows of the Great Pyramid on September 16th, 1978, along with a short film documenting the trip to the ancient city as shot by members of the band, their families, and the crew.As customary, the webcast will begin with a chat hosted by archivist David Lemieux and journalist Gary Lambert alongside special guest and Grateful Dead/Dead & Company drummer Mickey Hart.The Dead began arguably the most spiritually and mystically significant run of shows of their career in the shadows of the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt. The plan to stage these remote shows was the brainchild of bassist Phil Lesh, who once mentioned in The Grateful Dead Reader, “It sort of became my project because I was one of the first people in the band who was on the trip of playing at places of power. You know, power that’s been preserved from the ancient world. The pyramids are like the obvious number one choice because no matter what anyone thinks they might be, there is definitely some kind of mojo about the pyramids.”The date of the shows also held mystical significance, as a full lunar eclipse was due on the run’s final night, September 16th. The two shows were officially released by the band as Rocking the Cradle: Egypt 1978 in September 2018.Related: ‘Daze Between’ Stream To Feature Grateful Dead, Dead & Company, JRAD, More For Nine-Day Jerry Garcia CelebrationAs with each Shakedown Stream webcast, the band encourages fans to donate what money they can to a selected non-profit, which this week is the non-partisan voter registration organization HeadCount.Scroll down to watch this week’s Shakedown Stream pre-show featuring Mickey Hart followed by the full-concert webcast on Friday beginning at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.Shakedown Stream Pre-Show with Dave & Gary feat.

Parliament to Review Cybercrimes Act

first_imgMinister of State in the Ministry of Science, Technology, Energy and Mining (STEM), Hon. Julian Robinson, says increased efforts will be made to speed up Parliamentary deliberations on the Cybercrimes Act. The State Minister told JIS News that a proposal will be made to House Leader, Hon. Phillip Paulwell and his Opposition counterpart,  Delroy Chuck, for the establishment of a Joint Select Committee of Parliament to review the Cybercrimes Act. “I anticipate that the review will start before the end of the financial year. I can’t give a specific timeline as to when we will complete it, because it depends on how quickly the Committee works, but it is something that we are pushing ahead with,  and we are committed to ensuring that the issues of online security are given priority and treated as a matter of national security,” he emphasised.               Individuals, businesses and Governments around the world use the internet as the primary medium for communication and for the delivery of  services, finance, commerce, health care and education. However, with the advances in technology and telecommunication have come new opportunities for persons to engage in criminal activities. The Cybercrimes Act, which has sanctions for the misuse of computer systems or data and which facilitates the investigation and prosecution of such crimes, was passed in 2010. Provision was also made for the Act to be reviewed bi-annually.    Mr.  Robinson, who has portfolio responsibility for the ICT component of the Ministry,  said the review is important in this new age and the rapid advance of computer technology. “We have to ensure that the provisions [that are in place] allow our security forces and our prosecutors to be able to deal with persons effectively, who commit cybercrimes and that they  protect our individuals and our assets against persons who may want to  perpetrate such crimes,” he said.last_img read more
