This Minister Was Executed For Sleeping!!

Posted By:

The word "Ministers" can in itself boil ones blood, especially if you're living in a country like India. Yup, they are the ones who seem to promise us quite a lot during elections only to later watch them sleeping carelessly at a Parliamentary meeting.

This is the scenario we usually come across in the Indian government. They are the guys who enjoy their luxuries to the maximum and also make sure they sleep during important parliamentary sessions.

What can be worse than seeing them sit clueless, sleep or even watch porn during their official working hours?

As Indian government has been quite lenient about its ministers who have been lagging in progression, we need to learn from ministers of other countries, as they actually show the world what they are working for.

Here, in this article, we are about to share the story of a North Korean minister who was shot because he was sleeping during their session. Find out more.


Who Was He?

He was "Kim Yong-jin" the Vice-premier for education in North Korea. He had taken power in 2011 after the death of his father, Kim Jong-il. The 71-year-old military intelligence official is believed to be the mastermind behind the North's cyber-attacks on Seoul.

What He Did…

Kim is also blamed by the South for the sinking of a South Korean warship in 2010, near the disputed sea border with the North, in the Yellow Sea. He was banished to a farm for a month for his "arrogance" and "abuse of power."


Why Was He Punished…

He was denounced for his bad sitting posture when he was sitting below the rostrum. He was found to be sleeping during his official hours.


What They Did To Him…

He was arrested on site and intensively questioned by the state security ministry. Apart from this, he was publicly executed for dozing off! And sleeping during working hours is a No Joke in this country!


Final Verdict…

The firing squad did not execute him with regular guns but they blasted him apart with a massive "ANTI-AIRCRAFT GUN"! Now, this is something really harsh. Hope other ministers can understand the criticality of this and take their work more seriously.
