A high-ranking employee of the North Korean Ministry of Education is said to have been executed, according to a report.
He had previously criticized.
Pyongyang - North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un reportedly ordered the execution of the head of a commission on distance learning.
According to a report by the South Koran Daily NK, Kim Jong Un is said to have set up a commission within the Ministry of Education last year to promote distance learning at universities.
The head of this commission is said to have repeatedly complained about the situation in the commission in the following months.
They have too much work and too few resources.
All that is known about the leader by the name of Park is that he is between 50 and 60 years old.

“I cannot understand why this commission is created and busy professors are kept from their jobs if we are not given resources.” Park is said to have voiced this criticism.
In addition, it is said to have criticized that the envisaged distance teaching will only be feasible in the distant future, as the universities lack the necessary digital equipment.
Since his criticism was apparently not taken seriously, Park is said to have no longer taken the work of the commission seriously: “Even if we make good proposals, they tell us to shut up.
So let's just go over the agenda and go home. "
Kim Jong Un does not condone criticism: Execution of high-ranking employee
The North Korean dictator did not seem to have tolerated that.
Park was then executed, according to the report.
When exactly this happened is not known.
In addition, an investigation by the "Department for Organization and Management" of the ruling Workers' Party in North Korea confirmed that the commission had a poor work ethic.
This is why it is now to be restructured and in the future it will meet daily in the form of video calls.
Kim Jong Un now wants to take on the tasks with which he originally entrusted the commission himself and take care of reforms in North Korea.
He is said to have announced this to the new commissioners in a handwritten message: "Just as I became the commander in the fight for the reforestation of our forests, I will now also be the commander of the far-sighted major policy for national education".
