North Korea Shot Dead 2 Female Fortune Tellers, Forced Public To Watch Execution

Thousands of people were brought and forced to watch two female fortune tellers shot dead after public trial in the northern city of Chongjin in North Korea.

According to reports, the North Korean regime decided to make and example of the women after fortune telling, which has been deemed anti-socialist, became widespread in the country.

The women had formed a collective called the Seven Star Group and claimed that two children, aged three and five, could channel a ‘spirit oracle’ and tell the future.

Two of the women were shot while third was imprisoned for life, sources said

A source within the country told Radio Free Asia that the execution was designed to ‘maintain social order’ amid fears that fortune telling has become too widespread.

The source said: ‘Even high-ranking officials and the families of judicial authorities often visit fortune tellers’ before arranging weddings or making business deals.

North Korea tolerates no threats to Kim Jong-un’s authority, where he is viewed not just as the supreme ruler but as something close to a demi-God.

Any and all threats to his authority are therefore mercilessly stamped out.
