According to South Korean spies, the North Korean regime is working to expel citizens from the capital amid growing “disgruntlement”.
Pyongyang will be purged of all “traitors” to the state as the despot leader loses his steely grip on the hermit state amid continued tensions with the West.
Citizens are said to be becoming frustrated as further UN sanctions began to strangle the already poverty-ridden poor.
The tyrannical regime was hit by new measures after Kim Jong-Un refused to be abandon his nuclear programme.
And now his strict enforcers are reported to be kicking out and arresting any dissenters, jobless or people with criminal records.
The National Intelligence Service (NIS) in South Korea claim North Korea’s isolation from the rest of the world is worsening as more and more countries cut off diplomatic ties.
In a parliamentary briefing, the NIS said: “As citizens’ fatigue has increased amid toughened anti-Pyongyang sanctions, the North has sorted out disgruntled citizens, and expelled those with criminal records or the jobless out of Pyongyang.
It added: “After the U.N. Security Council resolution entailing strengthened sanctions, the North’s diplomatic isolation has deepened.”
Chubby tyrant Kim Jong-Un sparked fury throughout the world as he ramps up his missile programme and continues to threaten the US with World War 3.
The statement from NIS comes after the spy chiefs wanted North Korea is about to detonate a nuclear weapon at any moment.
A missile has not been launched at the Punggye-ri Nuclear Test Site since September 2016.
The bombs are tested underground beneath Mount Mantap, signs of excavation are closely watched for.
And now spy bosses believe preparations for two test tunnels have been completed so far – and NIS chief Suh Hoon warned a blast is “imminent” and could fall on September 9.
The date is a national holiday in North Korea, the Day of the Foundation of the Republic, and the same date when Kim last conducted a nuclear test.
It comes just days after North Korea fired three missiles towards Japan, with one exploding shortly after launch and two hitting the sea.
