North Korea to punish mobile phone users as ‘war criminals’

Posted on February 1, 2012


LONDON: North Korea has warned its citizens against use of cell phones inside the country, saying anyone caught talking on mobiles would be branded as ” war criminals” and punished accordingly, a media report said.

North Korea has long relied on a total restriction of information to maintain control over its isolated citizenry, and in this crucial time of transition between late Kim Jong Il and his successor, Kim Jong Un, the state is clamping down on anyone using mobile phones, ‘The Daily Telegraph’ reported.
