According to the North Korea Intellectual Solidarity movement “Kim Jong-un may have executed one of his closest aides earlier this month Kim Kyong-ok, the First Deputy Director of the Organization and Guidance Department [OGD] of North Korea’s ruling party was executed along with some of his aides.
Kim Kyong-ok is dead?
At the difference of the NKIS, I’m not able to assume that Kim Kyong-ok is dead as I believe that even his possible death means no changes in the North Korean system. We may expect some changes whether the leadership of the Organization and Guidance department will disappear. Is it possible? No as they are the basis of the North Korean regime. This leadership is a kind of stability for the North Korean regime.
As I truly believe that Kim Kyong-ok is still alive, I would like to present him as a member of the external team of the North Korean leaders.
First overall let’s move to the inner team:
The inner team (the de facto Kim Jong-un family) securized key posts in the North Korean political structures. These people are biologically associated to the Kim family. They are controlling the following key political structures:
- The National Defense Commission (which was enhanced as a top organ by the constitution of 1998)
- The Workers’ Party of Korea: the North Korean communist Party which is managing structures.
- The North Korean ministerial Cabinet: an organisation affiliated to the North Korean communist Party which (through its ministries) is managing a large number of North Korean companies.
- The Army: the KPA army is managed by the ministry of the KPA (the KPA ministry is Jang Jong-nam: a puppett of Kim Jong-un)
The inner team
|Kim Jong-un||North Korean leader, first secretary of the CC WPK|
|Kim Jong-chun||KPA vicemarshal|
|Kim Kyung-hee||PB WPK member|
|Kim Sol-song||Northkorean businesswoman|
|Kim Song-nam||Advisor to Kim Jong-un on chinese affairs|
|Kim Yang-gon||Unification Frond President|
|Kim Yo-jong||Director of the office 99|
|Kim Yong-il||Deputy minister of Foreign Affairs|
|Kim Yong-nam||SPA secretary|
|Ri Yong-mu||NDC member|
The external team
The external team is a gremium of people who are connected to the Kim’s family. They are loyal toward the leader however they are not connected by blood to Kim Jong-un. These advisors are loyal toward Kim Jong-un and accept the rotation of their responsabilities.
The external team (selected people)
|Cha Chol-ma||Director in the Mansudae company|
|Choe Ryong-hae||PB KPA director|
|Hwang Pyong-so||Deputy director of the Organisation and Leadership Department of the CC WPK|
|J Jang Jong-nam||KPA Minister|
|Jon Sung-hun||Former prime minister of the DPRK|
|Kim Kyong-ok||Deputy director of the Organisation and Leadership Department of the CC WPK|
|O Kuk-ryol||KPA vicemarshal|
|Ri Jae-il||Deputy director of the Propaganda and Agitation Department of the CC WPK|
Some sources also refered to Ri Pyong-chol, the head of the North Korean air forces, as being dead. Don’t worry here also, he’s alive, (this is at least what North Korean medias try to transmit). He was recently seen with Kim Jong-eun, who took charge of a flight drill conducted by North Korea’s air force Thursday and praised the pilots for demonstrating the “high art of aviation,” according to a report from the state-run Korean Central News Agency.
