  • N Korea senior intelligence officer 'defects to South'

    The last relic of the Cold War limps on.

    The officer has not been named, but the defence ministry in Seoul said he was a senior colonel in the Reconnaissance General Bureau and left last year.

    If he was as stated a spy master one imagines his agents will have been arrested just before the announcement was made. Be interesting if any important SK officials are no longer around.

      It will be interesting to see what reprisals come about as a result of this. I hope he doesn't have a bunch of family that he left behind in the north.

          Perhaps defection is the NK preferred divorce option? No alimony etc etc.

            Family in the North? No, this guy never existed. You don't know what you're talking about. And, if you persist in making stuff up you too will disappear...

              Good point. He has been in SK for sometime and sure to be in a debriefing.

              Some SK officials may have been assigned other duty, like breaking rocks.
