Using a Cell Phone in N. Korea Could Make You a War Criminal

Posted on February 6, 2012

North Korea is already pretty much insane, so you really shouldn’t be surprised to find out that using a cell phone will brand you a war criminal.

In the wake of Kim Jong-Il’s death, it seems that those found using cell phones or attempting to cross the border during the mandatory 100-day mourning period will be “punished accordingly.”

After the death of Jong-Il, thousands of people have attempted to flee in the wake of dwindling food reserves and abject poverty.

Despite approximately 1 million residents owning cell phones, the flow of information in and out of the secretive country has been stifled.

It’s up to Kim Jong-Il’s pudgy son, Kim Jong-un, to determine whether or not cell phones will be accessible after the 100-day mourning period ends.

Maybe he’ll just eat them all.
