North Korea executes Psychic fortune tellers live, while entire city watches on. The plot could not have more simple. To stop the wide spread, of what north Korea explained was a scam. The two sentenced to death and executed immediately, were using atleast two other children to con Koreans and had allegedly solicited funds.
The woman executed, had formed A psychic group calling themselves, “The Seven Star Group”.
I would be willing to bet, not many Psychics can be found in North Korea.The sentences may be A little harsh, but how does one stop the absolute rubbish. We see today thousands of self proclaimed psychics. They just keep popping up every where. Perhaps the worst, is when these so called psychics use children, then convince them they are gifted psychics. When in fact they definitely are not going to ever predict the Lottery.
But is execution really an appropriate charge to divert these so called psychics from scamming and conning innocent people?
Well known and alleged gifted psychic. Chip Coffee, even did a reality paranormal show called “Paranormal Kids” and has had no issues labeling kids as being psychic.
North Korean authorities staged a public trial and shot two female fortune tellers to death last month, forcing tens of thousands of people to watch, in what appeared to be a resumption of public executions.
The executions of the two women took place in March in North Hamgyong’s Chongjin city, and were aimed at forcing officials to stop patronizing fortune tellers and engaging in other “superstitious” behavior, according to two sources who spoke to RFA’s Korean Service on condition of anonymity.
The three had created a group called Chilsungjo (Seven Star Group) to carry out what authorities described as “superstitious activities,” the source said. They had used a three-year-old and five-year-old child to carry out their activities, claiming that the children were possessed by a spirit oracle and receiving money for telling fortunes,” he said.
In a landmark report in 2014, the United Nations Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in North Korea found that “as a matter of state policy, the authorities carry out executions, with or without trial, publicly or secretly, in response to political and other crimes that are often not among the most serious crimes.”
