Kim Jong Un is the North Korean politician. He has been Supreme Leader of the said country since 2011 and Chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea since 2012.
And recently he executed an unnamed general who was accused of a plotting a coup. So Jong Un threw him into a tank filled with Piranhas.
The general is allegedly the latest victim of the dictatorial leader who has executed plenty of aides, including his envoy to the US just last May.
It is said that he was thrown in a tank built inside Kim’s Ryongsong Residence, in Pyongyang. Reportedly, the flesh eating fish were imported directly from Brazil.
It is claimed that his arms and torso were first cut open before he was thrown into the tank. But it is not yet been confirmed whether the general died from being eaten by the Piranhas, or from the cuts made on his body, or if he died from drowning.
It is suspected that the North Korean leader might have been inspired by the 1965 James Bond movie ‘You Only Live Twice’ to do such gruesome execution method.
In the film, villain Blofeld has a pool filled with piranhas, which he uses to kill the assistant, Helga Brandt.
He is all about using fear and terror as a political tool. Whether or not the use of piranhas is an efficient way of killing someone won’t bother him.’
‘He wants everyone to know, including his most trusted aides, that they are at risk of suffering a very unpleasant death if he suspects they are treasonous.
‘He has executed members of his own family and killed senior government officials for not clapping loudly enough during one of his speeches.’
Other killing methods adapted by the North Korean leader are blasting alleged traitors with an anti-tank gun and burning prisoners to death with flamethrowers. He’s definitely someone you do not want to get angry.
In March, he executed his envoy to the US Kim Hyok Chol for ‘betraying the supreme leader’.
Chol was said to have been shot by a firing squad at Mirim Airport for being ‘won over to the US,’ during the nuclear negotiations with US President Donald Trump.
He has also executed his army chief, the CEO of North Korea’s Central Bank and ambassadors in Cuba and Malaysia.
