The North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has issued an order to ban suicides after a significant increase in cases. The exact number of suicides in the country is challenging to determine due to the regime's lack of transparency regarding such issues.

 

However, the South Korean National Intelligence Service estimated a 40% rise in suicides compared to the previous year. Kim Jong Un described suicide as an "act of treason against socialism" and emphasized that local government officials would be held accountable for failing to prevent suicides in their jurisdictions.

 

Confidential meetings were held in each province, involving party committee leaders at various levels, where the suicide prevention order was delivered.

Officials from the regions of North Hamgyong and Ryanggang, speaking on the condition of anonymity, revealed that the meetings included discussions on suicide statistics and examples of entire families taking their lives.

 

The anonymous officials expressed concerns that suicide was affecting the community more than starvation, highlighting severe poverty and hunger as the primary causes behind most of the suicides.

 

Despite the existence of a suicide prevention policy ratified by the general secretary, the officials admitted to struggling to find appropriate solutions.

The ban on suicides in North Korea reflects Kim Jong Un's view that suicide is an act of betrayal against the socialist ideology. By holding local authorities accountable, he aims to address the rising number of suicides and prevent further criticism of the country and its social system.

 

It is important to note that the information presented is based on anonymous sources and Radio Free Asia, as the North Korean regime rarely discloses data on such matters. The true extent of the suicide problem in North Korea remains difficult to ascertain.
