NORTH KOREA has reportedly opened new prison camps for those breaching coronavirus rules with some dying just “a day after entering” their gates.

Reports claim many are feared to have collapsed after being forced to run non-stop inside the units – which are surrounded by razor-sharp barbed wire.
Kim Jong-un’s cronies have introduced strict quarantine regulations on the the hard-hit provinces of Sungho-ri and North Hwanghae
Now they are putting those who violate the non-nonsense Covid rules into hardline political prison camps, reports the Express.
The North Korean Workers’ Party new policy is to brand the rule breaker “special criminals” that are guilty of political crimes.
News of the new prison camps comes just weeks after paranoid Kim reportedly ordered the execution of a man for breaking the restrictions.
He was reportedly gunned down in front of a crowd of terrified citizens in a bid to scare them into following Kim’s strict pandemic rules.
It has also been revealed Kim was secretly been given a protective coronavirus jab from China as he is absolutely terrified of dying from the bug.
The North Korean leader and “multiple other high-ranking officials within the Kim family and leadership network” have also been vaccinated, say national security experts.
On Wednesday a Daily NK source from inside the rogue state said the number of those labelled quarantine violators has “greatly increased” in recent weeks.
A new political prison camp was opened in Hwachon to accommodate the so-called “special criminals”.
The Ministry of Social Security has also created a place for these so-called violators, known as Camp 17.
The North Korean source said: “The authorities opened the facility in one of the coal mines where there used to be a worksite for the Hwachon Political Prison Camp.
“They created the new camp by walling off the mine and using the existing buildings.”
There is also Camp 26, located in the Sungho district of Hwachon-dong, North Hwanghae Province which was closed down in 1991.
The facility was later re-opened as the Sungho Disciplinary Labor Centre, and may be used as a camp for those who break quarantine rules.
The North Korean source has said that serious human rights abuses are taking place within the camp.
The source said: “If you pass out while running, they make you run more 10 times the amount of time you were on the ground.
“In early December, six of 53 new prisoners died a day after entering the camp from cruel treatment.”
Just last week, we reported how citizens caught fleeing North Korea are being worked to death to feed tubby Kim Jong-un and his hungry henchmen.
