Alleged assassin of Kim-Jong Un’s brother, Kim-Jong Nam, linked with online gambling and pornographic websites.
Casino.org has reported that an online gambling operator in North Korea is currently in custody for allegedly playing a part in the assassination of Kim- Jong Nam, the brother of dictator Kim-Jong Un.
“Jong-chol has been identified as one of the assassins who played a role in the events that took place at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia on February 13,” wrote Katie Barlow for the casino news website.
According to the South Korean news outlet Joongang Daily, Jong-chol ran online gambling platforms for the North Korean regime. He also facilitated pornographic websites at the direction of Jong Un’s Workers’ Party of Korea.
The Korea Joongang Daily revealed that: “Gambling is explicitly illegal for North Koreans, but the dictator has no qualms profiting off other countries accessing its state-sponsored internet casinos.
The same holds true for pornography, as both markets deliver substantial revenues from patrons residing in international Asian countries.”
